4 Former WPT Runners Competed at Thoroughbred Makeover / Monday, October 18, 2021

Thoroughbred aftercare is very important to all of us at West Point Thoroughbreds, and we walk the walk when it comes to taking care of our runners. 

We were honored to be represented by four former black and gold color-bearers at the Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover held at the Kentucky Horse Park. It’s truly amazing how versatile Thoroughbreds are and how quickly they can adapt and excel at second careers!

West Point raised $3,300 for this incredible organization by donating an ownership experience in a yearling colt by Breeders’ Cup winner Accelerate. 

Thank you to all of our Partners who generously support us in our quest to provide former runners great homes and chances at second careers through the Congie Black and Gold Fund.

Still Dreaming was the 2020 Show Hunter Champion and competed in Saturday’s Finale with Charles Hairfield. The half-brother to KY Derby winner Nyquist competed in graded stakes for trainer Graham Motion before being placed through Erin Hurley’s South Jersey Thoroughbred Adoption Program. Photos

Near Gold was 7th in both the 2020 Eventing and Competitive Trail Divisions. He is now owned by Beth Coney and was trained by Cherie DeVaux during his racing career. Photos

Baseline was 11th in the 2021 Dressage Division and 25th in the 2021 Eventing Division. The son of Bellamy Road began his career with West Point and retired last year after making 42 stats. Photos

Hallowed Gift was 34th in the 2021 Eventing Division and 13th in the 2021 Freestyle Division. This is impressive considering he was not adopted until late spring of this year. WPT placed him through the California Retirement Management Account (CARMA) after he competed for trainer John Sadler. Photos
