Great racehorse story!
Dawn Willoughby wrote about Chance on the Easy Care blog, and today a comment was posted with the following link, and the question did I think being barefoot gave Vo Rogue an advantage?
Vo Rogue raced barefoot in Australia. He won 26 races from 83 starts and earned $3.1 million! From the description of him as dirty, I’m guessing that he also lived out. He looks pretty happy in the photo – which I also think is a factor.
Unfortunately, his trainer died in 1994, 3 years after Vo Rogue retired, so there’s no contacting him to ask questions.
