Get to Know Adoptable Horse Uroncillo

A 3-year-old Thoroughbred gelding bred in Florida, Uroncillo is by Commissioner (a son of A. P. Indy) and out of Queen Brunette, by Uncle Mo. He is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover!

Uroncillo last raced on August 25, 2023, and retired with a left knee slab fracture, non-displaced. He is currently sound and will be suitable for flat work.

Uroncillo is doing well and is well behaved. He is good for bathing and grooming and is respectful of his handlers. He seems to be kind and well mannered. He is quiet in his stall, walks quietly around the farm and doesn’t cause any issues. He can be a bit playfully nippy, but he is not mean at all. He does pick on insecure, smaller geldings. He was gelded on September 21, 2023.

“Ronnie” needs encouragement with loading on a trailer. He unloads like a champ! Once on the trailer, he is good as gold and travels nicely.
