He's a warrior! He's an iron horse! He's a true inspiration. And they don't make 'em like this anymore. Hop Skip and Away comes to Second Call after an 81 race career that spanned nearly a decade. He ran his first race on July 20, 2007 and he made his final start of his career on November 3, 2015.

 

He ran up and down the East coast, winning 12 starts and almost always getting a check. He was the absolute model of consistency. Here he is in his formidable racing days.

Skippie wins a stake

 

Yet, after all that racing, he's sweet, gentle, and a real love bug. His favorite move - to tuck his chin into your neck and just snuggle.

 

But racing did take its toll on "Skippie." His ankles and feet show signs of wear and tear. He's currently undergoing rehabilitation and evaluation for his future. His medications are expensive. If you would like to contribute to this valiant warrior's rehabilitation, please use our Donate Now option and make a donation. Every penny helps and is greatly appreciated by this wonderful boy. We all thank you!

 

Here are a few more pictures of Skippie relaxing on the farm. And a photo of his favorite thing ... his muzzle as he's getting ready to offer it for a kiss!

Ready for kisses!
