AHR spearheaded the rescue of 15 horses from that auction, including the 2 fresh out of Del Mar. These are the TBs pulled:

""Warren's Baby Walk" was rescued for Tranquility Farms, who had already rescued his dam off a feed lot in 2008, the same year as his birth.. Warren's current owner admitted to match racing him, and the large fresh bow on his left front is testament to that.

Tribal Legend, less than one month off Del Mar Racetrack, and El Prado's Heirloom, less than two weeks off Del Mar, were also rescued."

And "older Thoroughbred gelding "Tampa," a Thoroughbred mare by the name of "Tis A Girl," were also saved."

And, important to me, the 2 Chincoteague ponies were saved, at the whopping prices of $10 and $25, respectively.

Now that is one worried looking horse. Glad that AHR was able to provide him with another chance at life.

This horse was sent to slaughter with papers, awards and new shoes. Look at this poor thing standing there in it's perfect halter class pose. The kill buyer could hardly wait to load it on the trailer.
