THEIR STORIES

Mr. Blakely, aka Doc, aka Finn

Western Maverick - Cam’s Last - Life Sign Foaled: 5/10/2015; Saco, ME
5N119
Pacer
Bay, Gelding

Doc had some minor health issues and was too slow to race, so he was donated to Futures For Standardbreds almost exactly 3 years after he was foaled. His youth and personality appealed to his trainer, who found him a delight to work with, and he was quickly adopted. His new owner had an older Standardbred ready for retirement, and she especially wanted another, younger Standardbred. She found her perfect match! Now renamed Finn, his training continues, but he was quick to enjoy trail riding, trips to the beach, and was soon in harness for pleasure driving - all BITTLESS! We receive regular updates on all their adventures together, including pictures from the carriage roads in Acadia. Thank you to his race owners, his trainer, and his new owner for giving this Standardbred in need a wonderful home!
