Jet Streak is a very nice, grey gelding who came to ATR through the New Start program at Penn National. He is 4 years old and stands about 16-16.1 hands. By Tapit and out of a Kingmambo mare, this is one of the nicest bred horses we’ve had enter our program, and he comes with the classy temperament to boot.
Unfortunately, Jet Streak fractured his accessory carpal bone after getting loose at the track and taking a fall. We have had Jet Streak in rehab since July and are happy to report that he is on track to recovery, though he will need extensive time off to rest and heal. We are not anticipating Jet Streak to be available for adoption until December, 2016 or later.
That aside, Jet Streak has been a joy to have in the barn. He’s sweet, playful, enjoys getting attention from our volunteers and staff, and has a very pleasant attitude for a horse that has been on extended stall rest. He loves to be brushed, fed treats, and has been good to handle for the vet despite his confinement. He’s also a good eater and has only put on weight since his time at the track.
Assuming his rehab progresses accordingly, Jet Streak will at the very least make a nice pleasure horse for someone. Time will tell if he will be able to do more.
