Southern Go, or “Chubbs,” is a three year old (2014), 15 hand gelding that arrived at After the Races by way of Penn National’s New Start for Horses program. Chubbs was reported to have been too fat and slow to cut it as a race horse, and we believe it! However, he did have one timed workout on 12/3/16 which makes him eligible for the 2017 Retired Racehorse Project.
While this gelding is little, he’s not expected to make a kids mount anytime soon as he could be a bit full of himself at the track. On the farm, he seems like the average OTTB but we’ll still be looking for an adult adopter for this one until we get to know him better. Rather than a kids horse, we think he’d make a better choice for someone looking to do barrels, cattle work, polo, or other similar disciplines with an experienced rider.
Chubbs passed his veterinary evaluation with flying colors and is cleared to go into any discipline without limitations. Whether that’s cattle work or jumpers is up to his adopter!
Southern Go is available for adoption now for $2000.
