I cannot even comprehend this sort of financial loss, but... this guy sold for $100k as a weanling, $115k as a yearling, and $1.8 million to Stonestreet at the '13 OBS 2-yr-old in training sale. Um, wow. He only had two starts, but had some breathing problems and sounds like he had some setbacks so they just decided to retire him. Anyway...

Pacific, 2011 gelding (Smart Strike x Mini Sermon, by Pulpit) is available for adoption via New Vocations: http://www.newvocations.org/horseprofiles/pacific/

His dam was a G2 winner and the rest of his female family was bred by Edward P. Evans for generations, and includes some really, really nice mares straight back to Gallorette.

Anyone know where he ended up? I worked with him as a yearling and he was a teddy bear! Bad stifles though, so I'm not entirely surprised racing didn't work out but hoping he has a great forever home!

15.2 hands, very small boy! I think he must have gone fast because of his pedigree.

Being that closely related to Zenyatta, he probably could've been 12 hands and still been snatched up as fast as he was ;)

2-time GSP Scotland is up for adoption at New Vocations. I wish I wasn't in grad school because he is perfect for my collection and would replace my now fully retired 17-year-old OTTB - 5 years old, 16.1 1/2, sound for flat riding only, and of course a chestnut....and $500 gets you this nice horse.

Wanted to post this somewhere. He looks good in his prep for a new job. Hope he passes with flying colors!

Stonestreet Farms
Always great to catch up with a retired ‪#‎burgundyboy‬
Majestic Cause is in training at the Fort Lauderdale Mounted Police Department and getting used to the obstacles he will encounter patrolling the streets and beaches. Hopes are that he will be ready for the final exam in 90 days, which includes having his officer shoot blanks while in the saddle!
Majestic Cause won at Gulfstream Park, and retired with earnings of $53,000. He worked the bullet at the Keeneland April Sale a few years back so will be well suited to pursuit!

He'll be one of the more expensive things on the force. He was a $700k 2-yr-old in training!

Amazing isn't it. Can't imagine risking that much, but then our horses don't compare to Stonestreet's. We have fun with them anyway, and just glad to get them good homes when the time comes.
