Meet offspring of Secretariat

If you loved the movie “Secretariat,” visit Horse Play and meet a winning grandson of the great Thoroughbred racehorse.

Red, a 14-year-old 16.1-hand chestnut thoroughbred and a resident of Horse Play equine sanctuary and rescue, will be available to meet and greet the public every weekend from now through December.

A winner in his own right, Red raced until he was 9 years old – a long career for any Thoroughbred – and amassed winnings totally approximately $867,000.

Stop by and visit Red and have a photo taken with this grandson of the legend (donation required), or watch him paint some pictures – he’s also an artist! All paintings are available for purchase.

Hours are Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 3 p.m.

Horse Play is located at 143 Gilbert Stuart Road in Saunderstown. For more info call 294-3565 or email horseplayri@msn.com.
