Walk Out is a handsome, chunk of a horse. At 4 years old and over 16 hands, this gelding by Curlin exudes class. He is very well-mannered and easy to handle for being right off the track, clearly having come from excellent care. “Strider,” as we call him, retired through Penn National’s New Start for Horses program and arrived at After the Races in late June. His initial veterinary evaluation turned up a sesamoid fracture, but further evaluation showed it to be old and likely not a big cause for concern.
Walk Out is getting a bit more time to rest to see if other changes in his fetlock will settle down. We’re remaining optimistic at this point that he’ll recover to be sound for low-level activity.
Stay tuned and feel free to reach out to inquire into his progress.
