ReadEmily's Blog: Victory Money's first month post-racing.

 "Then, I saw a five second video clip on Facebook of a blood bay horse with a white blaze and two white socks trot across a ring. And by trot, I mean float."

Victory Money's trainer Emily Kocubinski of Cochranville, PA, made a successful run around the Rolex cross country course at the age of 19 on her first Thoroughbred ex-racehorse. She gave all that up for life as a graphic and web designer until 2010 when off-the-track Thoroughbreds beckoned her to return to horses. She now runs a small business, Big City Eventing, devoted to finding new careers for ex-racehorses. In 2013, she was chosen as one of 26 trainers to be part of the Thoroughbred Makeover, and chose Victory Money to show in October at Pimlico.

WatchVictory Money's first cross-country schooling session.

victorymoney ribbon"I'm very lucky to be a part of such an amazing horse's retraining process. I feel she has potential in almost any discipline: eventing, dressage, hunters, jumpers, or maybe even foxhunting."

This past weekend, Victory Money "was fantastic at her first horse trial." She placed 3rd in the Elementary Horse division at Olde Hope Farm this past Friday. Look for Victory Money to show off her newly acquired skills at Pimlico on October 5 and 6.
