Organization: After the Races

Peachy retired by way of Beyond the Wire in Maryland and arrived to After the Races (ATR) just before Thanksgiving, and she has been enjoying life on the farm ever since! Peachy raced eight times, never hitting the board, and her connections smartly decided she was most likely better suited to a different career. This pretty mare is by Animal Kingdom out of a Candy Ride (ARG) mare, so she has great breeding. She is well built and clean. She crossed paths with the ATR vet on arrival, who watched her jog briefly and confirmed she was sound. They did a full intake evaluation a couple of weeks later, and the vet confirmed she’s sound, clean, and has no known limitations. Her only comment from the beginning was she came to them underweight and under-conditioned. Yet, staff has already seen improvement with her ATR diet and turnout. Out in the field, she lives with two other mares and a gelding with no issues. She has no vices, is currently front-shod, and has been very easy to handle and work with for having raced and retired recently. This mare is very kind. She’s going to make someone very lucky.
