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 looks like he's doing a great job.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

Misconnect (Unbridled's Song x Summer Raven) is a 5-yr-old gelding available from New Vocations: http://www.newvocations.org/horseprofiles/misconnect/

He's a Grade 3 winner and a full brother to Winslow Homer and a half to Grade 2 winner Lewis Bay. His dam was a Grade 3 winner herself, and his 2nd dam is a half to Wild Rush.

He's a pretty boy, and with that pedigree, I suspect that he cost a pretty penny if he ever went through an auction.

He sold at the KEEAPR 2013 two-year olds in training sale for $180,000 to Mike Repole. He's gorgeous!

Yay!!! If you've watched NY racing at all in the last few years, you've probably heard of this guy...

http://www.horseadoption.com/horseprofi ... tic-raffy/

Majestic Raffy (Raffie's Majesty x Badger Pocket) has been retired after a career of 41-4-8-4, stakes placed and just $51 shy of $300k in earnings. All of his starts came at Belmont, Aqueduct, or Saratoga. He's a full brother to current stakes-placed runner Moneyinyour Pocket, who has made 42 starts so far.

I love hearing what they have to say about him:
Raffy is sweet and friendly and loves to play. He has enjoyed lots of turnout and is great with his pasture mates. He was a very successful race horse and has a “been there, done that” attitude under saddle. This guy is confident and sure of himself in the arena and outside. He takes everything in stride and is happy to hack out alone or in company.

Raffy came to New Vocations via the NYTHA Take The Lead Program. We are very thankful for their support.

Demander (Yes It's True x Bootery) is available from New Vocations: http://www.horseadoption.com/horseprofiles/demander/

This 5-yr-old gelding ran 11 times at 6 different racks and earned $96k. He's a half-brother to millionaire Neck 'n Neck :D

They say he has a "a cute face and a sweet, curious nature... kind of a big goofy guy that gives you the impression he hasn’t quite grown into his large frame yet, but he tries hard at whatever task you give him."

He apparently stands at 17 1/2 hands!

And he's already adopted, but I always noticed him racing because he was so gorgeous and he had a weird name:

He really is attractive. If his mane, tail and legs stay black as his body becomes lighter? Wow. And those big, dark eyes!
A silver charger with black mane and tail would turn heads in any arena.

I love Majestic Raffy, he is a very good looking horse. I love the way he's built, such a lovely neck and bright eye.
