They see me rollin’, they hatin’ …
Late actor and martial artist Bruce Lee once said, “Here is natural instinct and here is control. You are to combine the two in harmony.” Apparently, this freshly off-the-track Thoroughbred is still figuring that part out. While the instinct to roll is there, he can’t quite keep track of all of the body parts that go into that elusive, magical movement that scratches all of the itches at once.
Kentucky-based eventer and trainer Jenn O’Neill just bought the 3-year-old (who raced under the Jockey Club name Nuri) as an eventing sales prospect, and he has already shown both his athletic and his goofy sides.
“We are calling him Reeves, as in Keanu, ” Jenn said. “Those are obviously Matrix moves.”
Hopefully Reeves will continue to develop his Matrix moves as he begins his new life off the track! Thanks for sharing, Jenn.
Go OTTBs. Go riding.
