Breyer®Harley, Famous Racehorse Pony
SleekThoroughbreds with their colorful silks generally garner all of the attention at racetracks. That is, until a large and colorful lead pony steps onto the track!
Daisy's Chief Dane, better know as Harley, catches everyone eye whenever he works due to his size and his striking black blanket appaloosa coat. As a track "pony", Harley must be calm, confident and strong to safely lead Thoroughbreds to the starting gate. Luckily, these are all traits of the America Sugarbush Harlequin Draft Horse breed, whose founders crossed Percherons with Appaloosas to go colorful workhorses with good temperaments.
Working at Churchill Downs and Keeneland Racecourse, Harley has ponied horses in races such as the Kentucky Derby as well as ponying famed racers like California Chrome and Frammento. As Harley works alongside Throughbred superstars he has developed a fan following of his own and is quietly becoming a star in his own right!
