Tell us a little bit about you and your horse.
My horse (Unexpected Fuller) is 12 years old; I got him when I was 12. Fuller last raced 3years ago, in 2014 he was in 8 homes before he made it to Cutting Edge Farm where he was re-trained by Bonnie Derr. We found Fuller online and Bonnie allowed us to take him on a trial for a month however after two weeks I knew he was the horse for me.
What is your favorite part about riding an OTTB?
My favorite part of riding an Off The Track Thoroughbred is their willingness to learn. Thoroughbreds love to work hard and put all their heart into whatever you ask them to do.
How did you first discover OTTBs?
I first discovered OTTBs when my family would take me to Charlestown Race track to see the races. From that point, I would talk about owning my own Thoroughbred and even being a jockey.
What is your favorite part of T.I.P?
My favorite part of TIP is being able to represent the breed, share my experiences, success stories and recognition I have received.
