UPDATE November 9, 2009: Congratulations to Sarah O’Connell of Bloomfield, CT on the purchase of “Soldier”. Sarah recently purchased Chipawild for her daughter Courtney and decided to get a Thoroughbred for herself too.
Anamericansoldier aka “Soldier” is a 2005, 16.1 hand, bay Thoroughbred gelding. He is unplaced in five starts so he got his marching orders to find a new career. He is super sweet and quiet to ride at the track — they only get better when they get home! This is a well bred Kentucky horse that is the grandson of Fappiano who was syndicated for a reported $300,000 a share! He has a nice big stride. He is believed sound for any career. He is still growing and maturing. “Soldier” loves attention and to be brushed. This horse will easily adapt to a career away from the race track.
