Meet Dave the Usher - or Usher Man as he's known around the farm. "Dave" is a gorgeous gray boy with a stunning face and eyes. He arrived not too long ago and is still learning his way around life on the farm. At first, he was confused - looking around for the race track and racing action. But he quickly learned that grazing on good, green grass is a much better alternative than race training. He's now happy as a clam chatting with his new friends across the paddocks and lounging in the warm sun.


At the track, Dave had a useful career - amassing nearly $100,000 in earnings over a 3-year campaign. He raced up and down the East coast including a few efforts at Tampa Bay Downs. But when he started to show signs that maybe he was finished with racing - like getting overly heated in the post parade - his owner made the decision to retire him while he was still good enough for a second career. And we think the sky is the limit for this handsome handsome fella!!! He is surely someone's dream horse.
