In February 2019, trainer Jesse Cruz dropped a claim slip for Midnight Shine at Oaklawn Park for Wasabi Ventures Stables. It wasn’t a great race for Midnight Shine, but Wasabi did win the claim.

Unfortunately, shortly after Midnight Shine joined Jesse’s barn, some health issues were discovered. While he could have been rehabilitated to race again, it was decided that the best choice for this then eight year old gelding was to be retired.

Working with New Vocations, Midnight Shine was transitioned from being a racehorse to being ready for adoption. In October 2019 he found his forever home with Madison Myers. Now known as Sully, he’s been training as a hunter/jumper and has competed in the baby green division, placing well in a few divisions.

According to Madison, Sully “has the sweetest puppy dog disposition.” She also says that they could not have gotten luckier with him.

We are so grateful for this happily ever after story for Madison and Sully.
