I Cat (or Ike as we call him) may have a plain brown wrapper, but it’s what’s inside that counts! After a successful career on the racetrack, with 21 on the board finishes in 46 starts from Woodbine to Gulfstream Park, Ike is ready to carry his natural athleticism into his second career. He is vet approved for any discipline, and has shown a natural talent for jumping. He has experience on the flat and over fences, adding local hunter shows, trail rides, and cross-country outings to his resume. We may start him under western tack soon as well!

Ike went through our retraining program in 2018, and was adopted. However, some things changed with his adopter, & he’s back with us & looking for his next adventure. He’s big and scopey, and built a lot like his sire Bluegrass Cat. Ike would be suitable for an intermediate level rider who likes a forward mount. He prefers a rider with soft hands who is ready to build a long-lasting partnership with him in the show ring and around the farm.

He is currently located at one of our retraining facilities near Dayton, OH.

Ike is available for adoption through Friends of Ferdinand, Inc, Indiana's only Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredited organization. All Friends of Ferdinand horses are vetted, require test rides, and come with a 30 day trial.
