5-time Breeders Cup Steeplechase winner McDynamo became a foxhunter following his retirement from racing. He, like many 'chasers already went hunting in the offseason while he was actively racing so it wasn't much of a change.

I'm told that BC Dirt Mile winner Furthest Land is now a jumper, but I don't know of any pics or articles about him in his 2nd career.

Dry Martini gets a mention.

Millionaire racehorse is Mr. Cool off the track
Nothing could shake Dry Martini.

Not the dogfights of horse racing, where he won $1.3 million dollars, and certainly not foxhunting and jumping, where he dashed through the wilderness of the Pennsylvania foxhunting territory with the cool-headed aplomb of James Bond.
