Suspectus retired sound from racing in late 2021 after a career of 22 starts.

Suspectus, affectionately known as Archie experienced a variety of environments during his racing career including bushwork (sand), the beach, and Belmont Racecourse.

During his race work Archie could be headstrong and boisterous as he enjoyed his work. He is currently on spell with his trainer, Jess Carbery who reports that he has settled and is an enjoyable horse to have around.

Archie showed early potential in his racing career which was not sustained. It was suspected but not diagnosed that Archie may have experienced issues with his fetlocks. After race days he would recover well, often seen kicking up his heels and stretching his legs. Archie was also treated with body work/massage during training and after racing for back muscle tightness. However this did not present as a chronic issue, simply maintenance.

On the ground Archie is a well-mannered, affectionate horse with a beautiful temperament. Archie has been travelled in a straight load float. He is good with other horses and is currently paddock with others.

Archie is a horse who likes to have a job to do, and is very focussed on his work. This will be a great asset in his next career.

While he is quiet under saddle and has the potential to make a great all-rounder he currently requires an experienced home who can set him up for success.

Archie is for sale by his sole racing owner who is seeking the best possible home for him. Price negotiable, a good home is the priority.

Archie is currently with trainer Jess Carbery who is happy to discuss the horse with potential buyers – 0439 527 955.
