Former Racehorse Shows Off New Dressage Skills at Grand National Parade

Tuesday, 23 April 2013

A former racehorse that now calls Clifton, near Perinth, its home, took part in the Retraining of Racehorses parade at the Grand National meet at Aintree at the beginning of this month, following a successful start to his second career in dressage.

 

Affectionately known as ‘Doofer’, Whatcanyasay was a much loved racehorse who ran 47 times, winning on 4 occasions. He was adopted by Robyn Gray after retirement and retrained to become a successful show horse in part thanks to the wonderful help of Retraining of Racehorses (RoR), a charity dedicated to helping racehorses find a second career after racing.
