If you are looking for a sound, athletic OTTB partner for Jumping or 3-day Eventing Bacardi would make a great partner for an experienced rider. We travelled to the Retired Racehorse Makeover this past October and he did a great job jumping through grids on the homestretch of the Pimlico Racecourse. He also travelled and settled in like a pro! Add this to his first show this summer his multiple trips off property and he has more than proven he is a great traveler. He is walk trot canter with flying changes and jumping 2'6" courses at home. Hacks out alone or in company. Does need a rider with experience as he learns this new career. Loads, clips, bathes, rides in a halter and lead rope. Clean legs. Does crib but controlled with a collar. Great ground manners and loves attention.
Additional photos available on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/brookwoodfarmsporthorses in our Photo Albums. Just look for Melvis, his Jockey Club name.
Videos are available on our YouTube page at www.youtube.com/ottb4sale just look for his playlist to see all his videos titled either Melvis or Bacardi.

Brookwood Farm Sport Horses -
Brookwood Farm Sport Horses was developed to provide a safe and loving home where Thoroughbred ex-racehorses can find a life after the finish line! We focus on helping sane, sound Thoroughbred ex-racehorses find new and loving homes in competitive careers they enjoy. Most of our horses move into careers as Eventers, Hunters, Jumpers or Fox Hunters. Those Thoroughbreds we select to bring home to our farm spend several hours hacking at the Georgia International Horse Park as well as schooling at local shows and cross country courses.
While we do focus our efforts on finding sane, sound Thoroughbred ex-racehorses, we do come across racehorses not sound enough to be reschooled into competition careers. Frequently, these horses are FREE or require a donation to a Thoroughbred Rescue Foundation.
We have contacts at several racetracks East of the Rockies. If we don't have a match at our farm, we can most likely find it at the racetrack. We have something for every budget. We would love to help you find that special equine friend.
