We rescued Sir Valahad, along with pony mare Snowflake, with Ag Patrol over Labor Day weekend from deplorable conditions in the C-9 Basin area. Thanks to assistance from some of our Facebook followers, we were able to identify him, and learned that he raced over 350 times and had lifetime earnings just shy of $800,000. He’s emaciated, but safe with us now, getting the proper nutrition and care he needs to regain his health. He is lame, and after speaking with his last registered owner, it’s probably due to an old injury he sustained in his last race. Sir Valahad is in quarantine with his gal pal Snowflake, enjoying turnout outside their stall area. Check back for updates.
