“Hoistthemainsail, also known as Sailor, is a 2018 gray OTTB gelding. We competed at the 2022 Thoroughbred Makeover. Sailor retired from the track in June 2022, with two months of downtime due to poor feet. We found ourselves questioning whether we should make the trip to Kentucky or not due to how green he was.

We made the trip, and I could never be more thankful that we did! Sailor was originally a resell, with his natural athletic abilities and his forgiving mindset. However, he now has a permanent home at Full Gallop Farm!

The Retired Racehorse Project is more than just another horse show, it’s everyone coming together to share the love of one breed and give them a positive second career. The environment at the Kentucky Horse Park in October is more than beautiful during fall. Everyone is so kind to one another, it is truly a magical experience, one like any other. The support, friends you make, positive attitudes, and inviting courses are something you don’t experience often in the horse world. The Retired Racehorse Project TB Makeover is truly a once in a yearlong experience that everyone should get the chance to experience”.
