Foaled April 25, 2008. A 10 year old, Dark Bay by Military - Fairly Fast by Fast Play. Rip and Roll had 71 starts with 8 firsts, 9 seconds, and 11 thirds, with winnings of $98,483. His last race was February 23, 2016 at Mahoning Valley Race Course.
Remi was purchased for me by my parents in March 2016. As my very first OTTB, I was hesitant to do anything competitive with Remi because I wanted him to have some downtime from the track. Once I felt comfortable with him, we focused on flat work, followed by free jumping and then a tiny bit of jumping under saddle. In January 2017, I switched Remi to a new barn where his riding and jumping really started to improve so much so that he showed in his first schooling show at the Tadpole level. I then wanted to take Remi’s Eventing talent further, so we moved to my trainer’s barn in an effort to start showing in bigger shows, especially around the Southeast. I competed Remi in his first and only horse trial in March 2018 at Full Gallop Farm in Aiken, South Carolina, where we finished 4th on our Dressage score at the Beginner Novice level. We were preparing for more, but sadly Remi’s career ended due to being diagnosed with Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Disease. As of today, I still care for him. Remi happily continues to live his life in a pasture with a buddy whom he loves.
