We bought Defend the Bay at New Holland late last winter after his former racing owner had given him away. We did find out that he had some behavioral issues while at the training center, so after he got healthy we sent him to Sally Shirley for evaluation. He was always good with her but seemed to be a bit uncomfortable in his back. We brought him back to the main farm and chiro’d him several times but could really never get rid of that discomfort- so that coupled with the reports from the track led us to the decision to place him as a pasture pet or with the perfect person who would be interested in trying to make him more comfortable under saddle with proper flat work and maybe some back injections. Bay is a big sweetie, one of the first ones to greet you at the gate. He is barefoot and sound.
