Baskets is a 2011, 17 hand, black, Thoroughbred gelding. Baskets just retired from racing and is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project (RTRP). Believed sound for any career.
Baskets is a powerful horse and is best suited for a serious eventing competitor. He was a distance runner on the track preferring to go over a mile. Sometimes he would even do a second lap around the track after the race finished. In the mornings he gallops two miles and then walks in the shedrow for an hour after his bath.
Baskets is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project.
Baskets is a very intelligent horse and he likes to watch what is going on in the stable area. He is inquisitive and respectful. He is not a hard horse to handle on the ground but he is a competitor on the track. He loves, love, loves his baths. He has had exceptional care from very loving owners. His owners do not want to see him get claimed and want to see him go on to a successful second career. Staying in touch with his owners is a requirement to purchasing this horse.
