Horses/My horses brand


QUESTION: HELLO! I really want to know my standardbreds former trotter name his brand is V3757 (I think) I need to know the former race name to give him a name because I'm adopting him from a rescue and don't like his name that he has now, the rescue says he was originally a trotter and then he went to the Amish and the Amish sent him to slaughter where the rescue rescued him. Please get back to me as soon as possible please!!

As you can see, his racing name was He's A Sport. He is actually pretty well bred! Small world--I have actually met the guy that's listed as Sport's last owner a few times; he lives about 5 miles from me! If you'd like contact info to let him know that Sport is OK and has a good home, let me know.
Best of luck!

I am knowledgeable regarding Standardbred race horses (trotters and pacers). I can answer general questions, questions regarding conformation, rigging, lameness and some shoeing questions.


I raced standardbreds (primarily trotters) for 9 years on the Grand Circuit and in overnight events for approximately 15 years.
