Cheongnyong Bisang The Ranch Horse

Over the past seven years, one of the best things about writing this blog has been getting to hear lots of horse stories. From the well known Sgt. Reckless to the unknown Mystery Clearance, hearing about the weird and wonderful way in which the racing world is interconnected is always fascinating. Cheongnyong Bisang’s story is right up there with the best.

A couple of weeks ago I received an email about him and was quite taken aback to learn that the 2013 Korean Breeders’ Cup and 2014 KRA Cup Mile winner was now in South Dakota being trained to be a ranch horse. The question I had was “how on Earth did that happen?”

Well that has now been explained in detail by Gate To Great, the thoroughbed re-training program that Cheongnyong Bisang has landed on his feet in. The Paulick Report also covered the story and as Jen Roytz writes, “We couldn’t have told his story better ourselves” so do click through to the blog post by Gate to Great. It is wonderfully written and well worth a read.
