Velvet is an outstanding and tireless young athlete. She loves to connect deeply with people. She had her papa’s fast trot at just 9 months of age, she is a flawless mover, and can transition seamlessly into a nice loping gait. As a yearling she trained with the Iditarod team, giving her a solid foundation of training as we move into her 2 year old season. As a 2 year old Velvet was in the winning Willow 300 team, her first race! She has gone on to race with tremendous stamina and is a mother to 4 with Ox. Thank you Vern and Emily Lee for sponsoring Velvet for the 2023/2024 season!
