Cola (Eight Beat Kick)

Mare Thoroughbred

Hi I’m Cola!

When I aspired to become the next Phar Lap, they called me ‘Eight Beat Kick’. In my very short racing career I raced three times and had four official trials. Some of those were even in some of the most prestigious race tracks in Australia!

But my aspirations soon subsided when I realised just how much work it took to be a racehorse, very soon after that I was suspended from racing for being uncompetitive which means too slow! Pft!

I decided to aim much lower on the athletic scale after I retired and think I would be better suited to pleasure or general competition riding. However, I will need someone with horse experience as I haven’t been ridden since coming off the track five years ago! I am very quiet though, and I’m lived by everyone at the sanctuary. Plus being only 10 I am the perfect age to start my new riding career!

Could I be the girl you’ve been looking for?

If you would like to know anything else about me, please contact the SAHA team!

Lots of love, Cola xx
