Multiple graded stakes winner All Included (Include x Eximus) was adopted through New Vocations!
After five months of much deserved rest and transitional training ALL INCLUDED was adopted by one of his lifelong fans, Dianne Volz who also tended to him as his physical therapist during his racing career. He quickly became one of her favorite horses so it was not surprising when she contacted New Vocations to inquire about adopting him.

This past Monday, the JRA held its first Retired Racehorse Showcase Event at Tokyo Racecourse. Former @Godolphin runners Shogun (Doyen) and G2 winner Neko Punch (New England) were paraded as successful examples of the retraining of ex-racehorses

The phrase "years young" has never been more appropriate.

What a great horse - a true legend in his own time. Sounds like the old boy is doing well. Love the picture of A.P. and Mr. Haley. Looks like a big stuffed wooly bear!

5 years ago Commanding Curve finished 2nd in the Kentucky Derby at 37-1 odds. Yesterday he sought redemption in his first recognized horse trials at Sporting Days Farm. This time, he wasn’t letting anyone else finish in front. Leading the class from start to finish, Curve once again defied expectations. I can’t wait for his young rider Maddy Cracknel to head down to Aiken next month and take him out herself! Very cool horse with a cool story. Happy to be a part of it!

West Point TBs always seems to do right by their horses post career. other owners are starting to catch on, but I wish every owner would plan out their horse's retirement prior to the horse actually retiring
