2001 Adelaide – Flying Doctor

FlyingDoctor2001smallThe old Doc didn’t do much in 2001 before this four-star.  I was only planning on running him in one horse trial to prep him up for the big event, but at the horse trial he popped a hoof abscess, so I couldn’t take him.  So the first start he had after the 2000 Adelaide CCI**** was literally the 2001 CCI****.  He galloped around cross-country clear but slow due to not having much of a prep.  I sold him for $2000 to a Pony Club kid who gave him five more years of love until he died in his sleep next to the fence post he wind sucked on all day. What a horse.
