A hard-fought race, he really showed his class. http://www.harnessracingupdate.com/race ... 32002YON4/

[quote="WarBiscuit"]The day has arrived, and 10yo h Forest Mouse finds himself moved over to the War Horse thread. This Sunday he begins his 2018 campaign at Sunland Park entered in the Winsham Lad Handicap seeking his 4th consecutive win of this race. Save for the Zia Park Sprint in November, Forest Mouse had a fine 2017 and hopefully the aging legs can carry him safely through another season. Outside of his Southwest territory, he seems to be a very underappreciated horse. One of the very best of the hard-knockers, he'll be looking to hit that million dollar mark. Go get 'em, Mouse!

Winsham Lad H. - Sunland Park - Sunday, January 14th - $65,000 Purse - 1 Mile - Race 9 - 3:50 pm.

The Mouse finished 3rd.

Isn't Bullet Liner still a stallion? Is he subfertile?

Thanks for this wonderful news, tachyon! Hopefully, we will be able to receive occasional updates on how he is doing. A War Horse for sure - a happy, healthy and long
retirement to Bullet Liner.

12 YO Renaldothewizard (g, 2006) finishes 3rd in the Dubawi stakes - a race he's wont he past 4 years and had raced in 5 times, now 6, total!! Total war horse. I've seen a few videos of him being unsaddled after the race and the crowd gives him a lovely round of applause. He looks a horse years younger and is definitely loving his job. Can't imagine this one would be happy in a field anywhere.
