I have somewhat seriously, somewhat casually been searching for a second OTTB for the last few months. And yesterday I found him.
Meet… well, to be honest, he doesn’t have a name! New Kid is a two year old by Courageous Cat (Storm Cat) and out of a Red Ransom mare named Taken by Storm. He’s been on the track and been training but he’s had no published works.
Here’s his pedigree for those who are interested:
I was personally really excited to see the Roberto line in his dam as they usually make wonderful jumpers and my husband got a kick out of just how old the dam lines were. Rahy on his sire side is also a nice turfy influence.
New Kid definitely needs a good trim and some growing up (oh my gosh, did I really buy a two year old?! am I crazy?!) but I see a lot of potential in him.
Right now we are working out the shipping but I am officially the owner of two horses! Time to buckle down the budget and get lean.
