I am currently running Palantir (aka Astro) at the Training and Modified levels. He IS A STAR!
Palantir is a 2013 OTTB. “Astro” is a graduate of the 2018 Thoroughbred Makeover. He is super sweet and has a great mind. He raced a few times and retired sound with no injuries. He is very confident in himself and has a sensible outlook on life. Astro is very athletic and LOVES cross country.
Astro had a fantastic 2021. With many wins, a 4th in the Training Level 3-day, and a move up to Modified, he showed me what a contender he is. Although he is not the easiest horse to ride – his antics in the warm-up arena can wear us both out mentally – he LOVES his job. I am planning on bringing him out at Spring Bay and Miama Valley at Training level. From there we will compete the Modified/Training division at May Daze, with a move up to Modified at the IEA show in June.
Astro is named after the Jetson’s dog. Because he was always trying to jump on top of me and run me over when I first got him
