“Tryst” is a very sweet, 7 year old, 15.3+ hand chestnut mare who retired in early 2017. She’s recently arrived from Penn National’s New Start for Horses program after 13 starts at the track. Tryst was lightly raced, having moved around a bit in her career. She started in California and ended up in Pennsylvania to finish her racing career.
Our vet evaluated Tryst on May 4th. We took radiographs of her knees because we were given reason to believe they were worth looking at. In truth, they were pretty clean! There was a little wear that might have led to her retirement from racing, but that our vet does not believe will affect her second career. She was a little sore behind during her evaluation but also just had her hind shoes pulled. Our vet thinks by the time she has a few weeks off to decompress from racing, it should be a non-issue.
Tryst is not currently in work, enjoying a little vacation post-racing. We are expecting to put her to work in June.
Though she’s not currently under saddle, she is available to an experienced home now for $800.
