BLACKFOOT MYSTERY results for 2016 Rio Olympics
Total Score 70.90
Here's Water Cube having to negotiate his first 'track' covered in wood poles everywhere. It must have been confusing for him, trying to figure out what Dutton was attempting to do. Dutton seems optimistic for Water Cube's future success.
Thanks for the update, Patricia.
No medal yet then, Blackfoot M will just have to try again. lol At least they improved their standing from 35th place - pretty good for his dubut . He's only 12 yo so hopefully he can try again in four years with Boyd for the Team event.
Congrats Dutton on your individual medal! Finally! Maybe we'll see you on Water Cube for your 7th Oly since Water Cube made it over the cavaletti without tripping lol
Jumping for Individual medals, the team of Martin/Blackfoot Mystery have climbed up the standings in the Rio Olympics Eventing competition over the past 3 days. Last I heard, the Americans were in 4th and 7th place and I am assuming that Blackfoot Mystery is the 7th placing. Good Luck, Blackfoot!! It would be neat if you medaled in the Games!
Martin/B.Mystery competed as a team in the cross-country
I look forward to it as well and hope for no injuries, Human or Equine.
I would have loved to be in Rio to watch them compete Live (not like it seems getting a seat would have been a problem). What an elegant creature Blackfoot Mystery is!!! Thoroughbreds rule! lol
Blackfoot is currently a 4-star event horse now. Ridden by Boyd Martin, he finished 6th at Rolex 2016 in May.
$ kaching! $
In June he was named to the 2016 U.S. Olympic Eventing Team.
I know it's not exactly HRN news, but I think it's nice to know where some of these ex-race horses end up. Especially when it's glory-filled like this horse's story.
Top-rated off-track-Thoroughbred Blackfoot Mystery is a 2016 Rio Olympian!!!!
He and his Team USA partner Boyd Martin will be competing in the Cross-country phase of the 3-Day Event competition this morning after achieving their best personal score in the Dressage phase on Saturday 8/6/2016.
Blackfoot Mystery will be able to use some of his racetrack speed skills in the cross-country course today and make use of his TB bravery/spirit to get over those giant 6-ft scary obstacles!
Cheer him on to victory for old time's sake, HRN fans!
He may have had a sad record of "3 Starts, 0 Wins, 0 Places, 0 Shows with Career Earnings: $1,200" on the track, but he making up for it by being a top-rated high-earner in his new career, raking in the prize money!
You just gotta appreciate skilled equine athletes regardless of where they compete!
