“My advice for any Retired Racehorse Project TB Makeover trainer would be to stay focused on your plan and how your horse is coming along. It’s easy to get distracted and put pressure on yourself to hurry things along when you see others that appear to be further ahead, but trust the process and ENJOY it.

Lucky has completed a few horse trials since the Makeover last year and has been simultaneously competing successfully in the Hunter ring as well — quite the crossover, I know! He is very versatile and has been a pleasure to have in the barn for owner/breeder, Merrylegs Farm.

Lucky came off the track with a surgically repaired condylar fracture and you’d never know it — don’t discount an OTTB with some hardware!”
