We hope this finds you enjoying the Fall/Winter weather and the beginnings of the holiday spirit – another year that’s racing by!
We have some very exciting news to share…
With Ziconic retiring from racing this past June, one of our visions and dreams is for him to be an Off The Track Thoroughbred (OTTB) Ambassador for the West Coast and beyond. We believe Ziconic can be a great inspiration as well as demonstrate the possibilities for Thoroughbreds in a post-racing career. Supporting special venues that hold our same values is central to Ziconic’s OTTB ambassadorship; From Racehorse to Sporthorse.
As our 1st OTTB Ambassador opportunity, we have found the perfect venue for Ziconic to champion and at the perfect time of year. In collaboration with Templeton Farms (Ziconic’s Home) and Sarah Pollock Sporthorses (Ziconic’s Trainer), we are delighted to support CARMA with The Thoroughbred Holiday Classic Horse Show, December7th & 8that the LA Equestrian Center. Our “Holiday Trifecta”!
We are honored to help promote this wonderful event and debut some of Ziconic’s new branding. These images will be featured on a jump we are sponsoring in the jumping court and will also be one of the jumps in the Trainer & Jockey Calcutta, held on Saturday evening, December 8th, where Trainers and Jockeys compete in jumping rounds on OTTBs. Such Fun!
If you are in the Southern California area, we hope you can attend. Here is additional information about the Show and the Trainer & Jockey Calcutta event Saturday evening:
You can also learn more about Thoroughbred Holiday Classic Horseshow Trainer & Jockey Calcutta on the event page, which also features a great video narrated by Lucinda Mandella, Executive Director, CARMA.
And find out more about CARMA, dedicated to providing funding for the rehabilitation, retraining and/or retirement of California-raced Thoroughbred horses.
Just like his Mom, Zenyatta, Ziconic does things on his own time. While Ziconic will not be attending the Thoroughbred Holiday Classic Horse Show this year, we could not be happier with his transition to date with Sarah at Templeton Farms – we are so proud of him and what they are starting to demonstrate in the jumping court. We are already looking forward to 2020 and great things to come!
