Kona Gold Heads to Horse Park


According to a report on www.thoroughbredtimes.com, a new resident will be coming to live at Kentucky Horse Park’s Hall of Champions. Kona Gold, Thoroughbred racing’s champion sprinter of 2000, has been invited to live the rest of his life in posh digs at the famed equine theme park in Lexington, Ky., and the gelding’s owners have accepted.
Although the 13-year-old chestnut won more than $2 million at the track, he has been working as a lead pony in the Southern California barn of race trainer and co-owner Bruce Headley since 2003. Described as a bit feisty, yet lovable—especially when you give him a carrot—the golden red horse will arrive at Kentucky Horse Park in the near future.
