Today marks the start of the 2012 London Olympic Games (officially!) and we are excited to tell everyone about a very special OTTB, War Buckaroo (competing under the name Exponential) who made his way all the way from Woodbine and Fort Erie to the Olympic games, under Jessica Phoenix, and is a member of Canada’s Olympic team!
You can read Woodbine’s story on Jessica and Exponential’s journey, and her visit to Woodbine Racetrack here! We should also mention that Jessica adopted Down By The Docks from us, and we are grateful to the John LeBlanc and his family for donating him to our program!
Jessica and Exponential will start their quest for GOLD at 5am EST on www.ctvolympics.ca and the gold medal for both team and individual eventing will start at 9:30am on July 31st!
From all of us at LongRun, we wish Jessica and Exponential all the best in their time in London!
