ADOPTED!  2017



George and John, now named 'Trooper' is a 6yo dark bay recently adopted by his new owner Tonya.

Thank you Second Stride for making it happen once again!

From Tonya:
I thought is was time to give you guys an update on him. He's doing wonderful, and healing amazing from being castrated. I have ridden him yesterday, under English and Western saddle. He's done amazing in both. He loves the attention and always greets me when he sees me coming to his pasture. Here are some photos of our ride yesterday!

UPDATE October 2016: Trooper is now learning to jump and has enjoyed a few trail rides!


From new owner Ali:
I actually have not ridden him yet I put tack on him just for pictures. He was gelded at Second Stride so I wanted to give him a few weeks of hand walking and adjusting before I ride him for the first time. He is currently at Second Chance Thoroughbreds in Jackson, TN which is a private Eventing farm. I do hunters and jumpers (a bit of low level Eventing as well). Tuscany will get to be a hunter or jumper depending on which he prefers. If he likes the hunters I will likely show him next year (probably spring 2017) in the baby greens or pre-green hunters. I have a strong background in hunters and jumpers but I do Eventing for fun as well. My horse Sword's Pride now known as Let It Rock has been in my care and ownership since 2010. Both Tuscany and Pierre live in a new barn with private stalls and their own pasture with plenty of other OTTBs around. He seems happy and enjoys getting baths and hand walking around the property!

Dark Bay Colt
Foaled April 8, 2012
Breeder: GTC, LLC (Dale Romans)

Retired sound

Recently from Firebolt's new owner (and now owner of his half sister, Porpentina):

(RE: Porpentina) I just adopted this filly on Wed from Second Stride. She last raced 5-12-16 and is the half sister to my other makeover horse. This was her third ride and I have a knee injury that I am having surgery on tomorrow. Her and her brother are so smart and willing to please. They are 3 and 4 years old, but they do not act it at all. We plan to keep both of them as they both show so much potential.
