Remember Me Rescue
The Deputy is an Irish bred, 24 year old retired Thoroughbred racehorse. The Deputy was a very successful racehorse, earning $817,270 during his career, including winning the Santa Anita Derby. The Deputy's final race was the 2000 Kentucky Derby. Upon retirement, The Deputy had a breeding career and eventually ended up in Iowa. Unfortunately, in March 2021, The Deputy was located in a feed lot in North Texas. The original racing owners of The Deputy immediately bailed him out and sent him to Remember Me. We are honored that he is with us as a permanent resident. The Deputy is a senior horse but he is extremely playful and enjoys challenging his paddock mates to races. The Deputy serves many roles at Remember Me, from entertaining guests on tours to assisting veterans in our veterans program. The Deputy would greatly benefit from Platinum Performance products because of his age. At 24, and being a retired racehorse, The Deputy can always benefit from joint support. Additionally, we have been working on The Deputy's hooves to get them back in excellent shape. The Deputy would definitely benefit from Platinum Performance's hoof supplement. The Deputy is a kind, patient and playful horse that we are lucky to get to have in our program.
