  • The owner of a retired listed racehorse is seeking a new home for him on a stud

    Lincoln Dancer, a former flat racehorse, is looking for a new home and a career change, preferably as a teaser or stallion on a stud.

    Owned by Michael Baker, Lincoln Dancer proved himself a loyal servant finishing well in a number of listed races and winning a total of £87,436 in prize-money.

    Bred in Ireland in 1997, the five-year-old 16hh bay stallion is by Turtle Island out of Double Grange.

    Intially trained by Geoff Lewis, he joined Michael Jarvis’s yard as a “back end” two-year-old and his greatest success was finishing second in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket in 2000.

    His personality and presence have made a huge impact on his owner and trainer, who have taken the unusual step of personally trying to find “Dancer” a new home, rather than place him in the sale ring.

    His trainer Michael Jarvis said: “He has a wonderful temperament, kind disposition and has been a pleasure to train.”

    “Lincoln Dancer is a good type of horse and would be ideal as a teaser or even for covering a few mares.

    As a three-year-old, he underwent major colic surgery and was not expected to survive, however testimony to his bravery, Dancer fully recovered and returned to racing.

    Lincoln Dancer was officially retired from racing last month because training was aggravating the mild arthritis he suffers in his knees.

    If you think you may be able to offer Lincoln Dancer a suitable home, please contact Michael Jarvis (tel: 01638 661702)
