Bred to be competitive athletes, it’s no wonder Thoroughbreds can have both a solid career on the racetrack and then also find success in another equine discipline off the track. But what happens when they are no longer competitive in that second career? With some, the routine and activity level that comes with a regular job is a necessity.
That was the case with Devil’s Passion, who retired from racing at age 5 and then retired from his second career as a pony horse at 20. The son of Saucy Token was ready to slow down, but was accustomed to a regular routine and human interaction through his two careers spanning approximately 18 years at the track.
