February Placement Program Graduates

Avanti Bello

We've been fans of Avanti Bello for years. With his big heart and willingness, Avanti Bello earned more than half a million dollars from his 47 career starts. He ran against champions as such California Chrome, Accelerate, Hoppertunity, Soi Phet, Dortmund, and Stormy Liberal.

Avanti Bello retired from racing in June 2019 without injury and has a bright future as a riding horse and pet. He is one of the sweetest horses you could ever hope to meet.

He was placed with aftercare charity Win Place Home, Inc. where he is available for adoption.

She was placed with aftercare charity Win Place Home, Inc. were she will start retraining for a second career as a trail horse or companion.
