2022 Honorable Mention

US Hero
Official Name: US Hero
Birth Year: 2016 Gender: Gelding. Breed: Thoroughbred


Close X     

Thoroughbred Athletes, Inc.
US Hero is a 2016 Bay Gelding. He came to TAI after his racing career ended. His last win was in April 2021, and his last race was in July 2021.

US Hero came to TAI in October 2021, after he appeared pained in training runs. TAI Vets have reviewed his X-rays and determined that he has Kissing Spine condition, which ended his racing career - but will also limit his post racing career. Hero, who is a beautiful horse, is a barn favorite and is looking for a new "forever" home to call his own!

This writer would love to adopt him, but he doesn't have a place to keep him. He is such a friendly guy, and will be missed at TAI once he moves on!
