Harlem Rocker – 2008 Travers Contender and winner of nearly $600,000 in racing purse money
Harlem Rocker joined our herd in November of 2015. Having been pensioned after a short time standing stud at McMahon’s Thoroughbreds in Saratoga, Harlem Rocker was living his days, still a stallion at Adena Springs Farm in Paris Kentucky.
ACTT Naturally’s founder, Valerie Buck was the regular exercise rider for Harlem Rocker at the Todd Pletcher Racing Stable where she worked throughout his career. After some investigating, Valerie found him and quite boldly asked Frank and Frieda Stronach, his owners, if she could bring him back to NY, and have him participate in the equine facilitated learning programs that were developing at Long Shadows Farm, home to ACTT Naturally. He was gelded in KY and Valerie drove to Kentucky to pick him up in November.
Donated to ACTT Naturally by Frank and Frieda Stronach, Harlem Rocker is embracing his new rewarding career with us! He is our ROCKSTAR!
