Description: Larry was a hard working blue collar horse who primarily raced at Los Alamitos and Grants Pass. He mainly raced in claiming company and hit the board about 50% of the time.  Larry is sound except that he developed a throat condition that needs to be addressed possibly through surgery whereby it is cured (tie back surgery). We will need to observe him and determine best course of action first. Larry is otherwise sound with clean legs and has no other issues. He is a kind and willing horse. He could go in just about any direction a prospective owner wants to take him.

Update March 2022:  UC Davis asked us if we would allow Larry to be a therapeutic program horse and we agreed. Given his rare condition it would be better for him to be in professional hands where they will try to study and address his condition. In addition medical students learn how to handle a horse for examination. You have to have the right temperament to be such a horse & Larry fits the bill as he is very sweet & gentle. And no medical experiments or surgeries are performed on the horses.
