Description

Heavy On Themister won nearly a million dollars on the track. We think this 11-year-old athlete, with the heart of a lion, will excel in the sport horse world. Don’t let his age or history fool you!

This clever boy has three powerful gaits, but he requires a good bit of leg to get him going. For as much as he won on the track, he sure likes to mosey along! Easy on the eyes, this well-built liver chestnut shines like burnished copper in the sun.

Cheeky and fun, Mister loves people and any and all attention. He was exposed to several different herds of camp girls over the last couple weeks and was a star! He stands like a dream in crossties and is very easy to work around. He can be a little mouthy at times and needs a handler who can laugh at him but also hold his respect. As he is an athletic and clever fellow, he will require confident handler but, as you can see in his video, he’s been ridden by a young rider with a trainer’s guidance with no issues.

The sky’s the limit for this talented gelding and he has no limitations. He’s the total package.

Mister is eligible for the RRP’s 2019 and 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover!

 

ADOPTION FEE POLICY

New Vocations’ adoption fees are intentionally set lower than the cost of buying most Thoroughbreds or Standardbreds through a private seller. In today’s market, it’s not unusual for horses coming right off the track to be listed for sale at a price between $2,000 and $5,000. At New Vocations, we set a fee that will ultimately help each horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means we cannot take in an additional horse until one is adopted. Adopters should be encouraged to know that by adopting a horse through New Vocations, they are actually helping two horses transition to careers outside of racing.

Additionally, adopters get great value for their money: The majority of the horses have been in the program for a minimum of 60 days. During that time, horses are rehabilitated (if needed), socialized with other horses, fully evaluated, and in work with a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses each horse’s history and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.

While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that costs associated with ongoing care and additional training for each horse after adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront, he or she will have more funds available to cover the continuing costs of properly caring for a horse.
