Robert Redford is a 6 year old TB gelding who raced under the name of Persuasive Paul. His career ended when he developed degenerative osteoarthritis which is a common cause of lameness in racehorses It was determined his injuries were too extensive to retrain for another career; particularly since he loves to run and could seriously injure himself in his enthusiasm. Since coming to the sanctuary Robert Redford has charmed all of us with his friendliness and zest for life.
