Description: Red was originally a very expensive horse. He was bought at auction for $125,000 and went into training with internationally renowned trainer and Triple Crown winner Bob Baffert. However, right before he raced he developed a tendon problem, went into rehab, went back into rigorous training and yet again developed a tendon issue. Clearly, Red is not cut out for racing and thus retired but certainly other disciplines could suit him very well. He’s a very personable and well-bred guy.

December 2016 Update:  Red has been moved to Bear Creek Stables where he will begin his training as a trail horse.  Stay tuned for updates!!
February 2017 Update:  Rhett is doing extremely well and has quickly become a barn favorite.  Nothing phases this guy.  He is full of energy and very athletic but reserved and calm when he needs to be.  He is an amusing character and enjoys watching all the goings on at Bear Creek.  Although the weather has been awful the few times he’s been taken out under saddle he’s performed like a champ.  He has a beautiful fluid gait and is very responsive. willing and according to the barn manager an absolute joy to ride.
