Ex-racehorse prances onto Monmouth

Moving past the red geraniums and a few startled jockeys, Tracy Brennan sat sidesaddle as she rode her unflappable ex-racehorse, Runnin Robbo, onto the freshly harrowed earth of Monmouth Park.

She and her off-track thoroughbred had come to demonstrate the point: there are great possibilities awaiting a racehorse who has lost out on the track. And fittingly, they were invited by racehorse adoption agency ReRun to strut their stuff on the track, between races.

Looking every inch the equine fashion plate, just returned from a magazine photo shoot, Brennan guided her leggy 17-hand chestnut onto the raked dirt, a place of racehorses and fast competition, an atmosphere rippling with action as jockeys and racehorses readied for the next race.
