Thoroughbred Makeover 2017 - Wrap the Jazz!
Wrap the Jazz is a dapple grey, 4 year old, 15.2hh, Thoroughbred gelding.
Pedigree: Come On Jazz - Wrapper, by Capote
I had the pleasure of purchasing this beautiful gelding at Turfway Racetrack.
His career as a track horse consists of 13 starts including two 3rd place finishes and $3,440 in career earnings. He has raced at Turfway, Ellis Park, and Belterra Park and preformed best running on turf tracks.
Jazz arrived at the Ranch on November 7th, 2016. He has since been transitioning from training on the track to becoming a pasture horse. He will have quite a bit of down time as his diet and exercise load changes and he adapts to his new life off the track. His re-training will begin in January. He is entered in the Competitive Trail class at the Thoroughbred Makeover for 2017
This horse has a lot of personality, he loves attention and has a very docile temperament. I believe he will enjoy being taken Western and becoming a trail and pleasure horse in the coming months. We will be starting in January with natural horsemanship ground work, lunging, line driving, desensitizing, etc. He will then be restarted into the basics of reining and western pleasure to create a soft, well-rounded western mount. My goal with Jazz is that he could be taken any direction his ability and his heart desires. He will be available for sale at the Makeover and will be preparing all year to find his forever home.
Follow Jazz's training through this blog and his Facebook page as his training continues and we prepare for his successful transition from racehorse to pleasure horse through this exciting national event!
