Washington Star (Denzel) is the fourth standardbred to go out into the new OTTWA Retraining Program.

He is currently based with Bayley Thomas at Lokenzo Park in Roleystone, where he is learning the tricks of the trade since retiring from racing.

Denzel has been seen to be good to float, handle and have around the stables. He is a sensitive soul but is loving being back in the cart after a five year let down from racing, he took to it like he had never had a day off.

As Denzel isn’t convinced that he should be a ridden horse, we think he will make the perfect companion for someone wanting a harness horse or even a horse to show in-hand as he has all the looks required for the ring.

The lunging video was taken 30/11/020 and the harness video was taken 29/12/2020 of Denzel in the cart for the first time in five years.

As Denzel’s training progresses, we will update his advertisement.
