Description: This Argentinian bred war horse raced until he was 12 years old. He was very competitive and is stakes placed. His barn name is Batman, partly taken from his name and because he’s a very good looking dark bay at 16.2 hands. He came off track carrying good weight, which is unusual, so was well taken care of by this last trainer. He’s a very sweet and agreeable horse so his options are open.
Because he was retired in a private purchase during a world-wide pandemic we are giving him quite a bit of downtime before we start assessing his post racing options.

Batman becomes the ninth Racetrack Warrior we have retired in the last 18 months. All of these horses were racing at 10 years or older. These nine horses have combined starts of 632!! That means on average each horse left the starting gate 70 times!!!!!

November 2020:  Batti Man (Batman) has been permanently retired to pasture in Tennessee.  He adores running around and getting muddy as all out and this is the perfect solution to an old warrior who has given everything to the sport.  Batman loves his other gelding millionaires so he’s in good company.
