Cosequin Presents Aftercare Spotlight: Firsts, Lasts, And Memories With ‘Waldo’

To the naked eye, Northofthevalley wasn’t an overly remarkable individual. Standing just over 15 hands, the dark bay Canadian-bred gelding was a lifetime claiming horse who ran exclusively at Hastings Park in British Columbia. While he ran for upwards of a $12,000 claiming tag at one point, his sweet spot seemed to be around $2,500. […]

Cosequin Presents Aftercare Spotlight: To Making Things Better in 2017

Every ending is a new beginning (or, as the band Supersonic sang in their hit song, Closing Time¸ “Every new beginning is some other beginning’s end” – such a great way to phrase it!).

Sportin' Aron, aka Elliott, at age 35: "He is relatively low maintenance for a horse his age."
Cosequin Presents Aftercare Spotlight: Perhaps The Oldest Thoroughbred In America?

It’s hard to know who really is the oldest living Thoroughbred in the country. Unlike researching the leading money earner (Arrogate, with $4,084,600 in earnings this year) or most wins (Betty Starlight, with 10 wins since January 1), there is no formalized cataloging system for when a Thoroughbred passes away from old age. Prospect Point […]

Case in point: in addition to being an avid and active equestrian, Addington is taking college-level courses as a high school junior, is a budding […]
