$800 Horse Raising Awareness For Thoroughbred Retirement

Roy Steele is a noted handicapper, largely thoroughbred, with a website called horsewhispererusa.com and a regular on Horse Racing Radio Network.

And just as one would expect, Steele has gambled on an $800 "bet" and won.

When returning from the Forest City sale in London, Ontario, a year ago, he happened across an estate auction on the road between London and Sarnia. The farm had belonged to Ike Matthews, who had been a small breeder of cattle and horses.

“There were all these animals among the construction equipment,” remembers Steele. “One of the horses was a pacing yearling by Whosurboy (Artsplace–Sweet Reflection, by Big Towner), who I like very much. His babies have gone for $20,000 to $30,000 at Harrisburg.

“This one was a bit undernourished, covered in mud, and sandwiched between a backhoe and a bulldozer. There was no one there apart from us. I paid $800 for him, on my credit card.”

The horse that was revealed once the mud was curried off, was pleasingly put together, and it didn’t take long to show he had some talent.
