Presque Isle Downs where Stevis Man won 20 of his 26 career wins has named a race to honor this great horse. The Stevis Man Purse race was held on July 26th, 2023 at Presque Isle Downs racetrack. This video is a tribute to him and shows the beginning of his new life after his racing career ended.

  1. I just donated to your hay fund. I wish it was more. Some years back, I was thinking about adopting one of your OTTBs and filled out an application. I was approved but, almost at once, another OTTB sort of fell in my lap. Funny how this happens. He is Bet the Cat, a now 14 year old former claimer that ran 25 times with 3 wins. His grand sire is Storm Cat but it would seem that the only thing he inherited from him was a gorgeous tail! He is sweet and willing to try anything asked of him. I am a tad too old to ride him now so I lease him to a wonderful rider who adores him too. I will always own him. I am a tour guide at Pimlico and love horse racing. And I am so glad there are places like yours that make sure they are well placed in a forever home.

    • Thank you for your donation. It really makes a difference to have your support. It seems you were meant to have Bet the Cat. I love that you are keeping him. If you are ever in the area, please visit. You are always welcome!
