Ecovet Presents Mind Your Melon: Race Prep

Check out how a Standardbred preps for race day.

If you’ve ever wondered what getting ready for a race looks like for a Standardbred, here’s your chance to find out. This POV footage shows footage as J. J. Elvis get ready to race, from start to finish. What struck us is how calm and easy going J. J. Elvis is. It’s also clear how much owner Charlie Murray and trainer Fred Saunders care for the horse. From his rub down to his cuddles, this horse lives the life.

Happy Wednesday, Horse Nation. Go riding!
