Description:   This eight year old was curiously never raced until he was six! His sire only started twice and was retired as a two year old and his damsire never raced.  We found it quite strange he was ever bred to be honest.  He must have been a hobby for someone but that actually works to our advantage since he wasn’t started early and allowed to develop.

However, when he finally started racing he actually retired with quite a respectable record. His retirement was due to a bow tendon on the left front. We have just had him scanned at the track and the vet says he’s doing fine and should be ready to resume post track training in a couple of months.
He has a very sweet face and is quite friendly. Perfect Manners has a very calm demeanor and yes, he does have PERFECT manners.

Update April 2019:  Murphy was adopted by Sierra G and is living near Yosemite National Park.  Besides trail riding Sierra would like try Murphy at barrels.
