The handsome Velvet came to us from the same racing stable as beautiful Whistlejacket who is kicked massive goals in his HERO training under the care of Jason Dins.
Velvet is a pacing-bred son of Rocknroll Hanover who enjoyed a short but very successful career on the track with four wins and two placings from eight starts (including successes at his last two runs) before tendon issues forced his retirement.
He had 15 months in the paddock to recuperate, however, and is now 100% sound and ready to embark on his second life after enjoying great care with our friends at Alabar Farms.
Velvet has made wonderful progress through his HERO retraining - a slow and steady approach has paid handsome dividends.
He has had plenty of exposure and developed into a confident and obliging riding horse with untapped potential.
