Grade 3 winner Dynamic Host (Dynaformer x Hosta) is up for adoption through Second Stride: http://secondstride.org/dynamichost.htm

He won the Gr. 3 Tokyo City Cup for Art Sherman back in 2012 and ended up in the claiming ranks at Turfway. He hasn't run since January 2014, and apparently he has "had ample time off just being kept around the racing stable as a pet."

Keeping him around as a pet would lead me to believe that he did NOT inherit his sire's demeanor :D

Here you go, people. Your chance to own a $2 million horse! I cannot even comprehend this sort of financial loss, but... this guy sold for $100k as a weanling, $115k as a yearling, and $1.8 million to Stonestreet at the '13 OBS 2-yr-old in training sale. Um, wow. He only had two starts, but had some breathing problems and sounds like he had some setbacks so they just decided to retire him. Anyway...

Pacific, 2011 gelding (Smart Strike x Mini Sermon, by Pulpit) is available for adoption via New Vocations: http://www.newvocations.org/horseprofiles/pacific/

His dam was a G2 winner and the rest of his female family was bred by Edward P. Evans for generations, and includes some really, really nice mares straight back to Gallorette.

Pacific is absolutely stunning and I'd snatch him up in a heartbeat if I had the room.

Super cute Dyker Heights (Candy Ride x Darling Mambo) was retired unraced because he just wasn't very fast, and is available through New Vocations: http://www.horseadoption.com/horseprofi ... r-heights/

His dam is a half to the grey, Irrefutable, who collapsed and died after running 2nd in the Vernon O. Underwood in '11 :(
His 2nd dam, Honestly Darling (Kingmambo x Reluctant Guest) was an $800k Keeneland purchase and is in Japan now, with foals from several of their top stallions.
His 3rd dam, Reluctant Guest, was a Grade 1/Grade 2 winner.
His 5th dam, Shoshanna, is a half to Fast Turn (dam of Ack Ack).

:lol:
Dyker Heights, which is the name of a borough in Brooklyn, is a sweet baby 4 year old gelding standing 16 1/2h. Dyker is the first one to come marching up to you in the field and will follow you around even when you are trying to catch someone else.

He is lovely! He's one of those that I would take in an instant if I had an empty stall.

Graded stakes placed Jimmy Simms (Lost Soldier x Queen of America) will be up for adoption via New Vocations as of tomorrow (his page isn't up yet). This guy retired in July 2014 at age 9 with a record of 34-14-5-2 and earnings of $635k.

He raced from 2007 to 2014, many in stakes company, and ran against several generations of familiar names. He was 2nd in his debut to Mad Flatter and ran against horses like Simmard, Macho Again, Rahy's Attorney, Get Stormy, Jeranimo, and was even 2nd to Wise Dan in the Presque Isle Mile :)

Jimmy Simms is a half-brother to Well Monied :)

Very happy to see the mare EZPZ Lemon Squeeze (pronounced easy peasy lemon squeezy) recovered from her injury (sesamoid) and is up for adoption. Always liked her :D
