Well of course I had to take a photo of this lovely gray Thoroughbred standing in front of the stable office at Santa Anita this morning. I'm certain that the life size plastic horse caused more than a few people to do a double take!
With a little digging, I uncovered its story. It is one of several plastic horse statues owned by Santa Anita Racetrack and used by the marketing, publicity and group sales departments for special parties and events. This particular horse was taking a short rest in transit back to the warehouse after being used on Sunshine Millions Day by ESPN in one of their film segments.
