MILLSTONE TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Killean Cut Kid, now a 13-year-old gelding, the son of Mach Three who earned $315,239 in his career, is ready for a home nearly six months after he was found in a Louisiana kill pen. 

It was noted on Facebook, by the owner that the horse was deceased. Kid was helped by a volunteer group on Facebook, Save Our Standardbreds From Slaughter (SOSS), and Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF).

Kid was in very poor condition and was sent to a quarantine facility where he received medical care. As a result of decubitis ulcers on all four legs — believed to be the result of having bandages on for an extended period of time — he required a great deal of care.  Kid was fortunate to have kind donors, and SRF help with his care and transportation to New Jersey.

Today, he is ready for a loving home. Kid is in Cream Ridge, N.J. with Dr. Hogan where he has been for a couple of months receiving care. Dr. Hogan notes that he is a very sweet horse. He has a very kind and patient temperament, and can take the saddle for the occasional ride.
