Magical Albert

Magical Albert, the bottle-fed foal, reached beyond his sibling’s size to 16:2 hands high. Albert got acquainted with racing in 2016 as a two-year-old. Schooled at Mohawk Racetrack, the big bay posted a time of 2:05. Late that same year, the trainer recommended we geld our boy. Albert wasn’t keeping weight on, his ribs were showing and he was often biting at himself. The surgery took place in the fall of 2016. Following the procedure, Albert returned to Hillsborough Stables for a few months. In February 2017, a filled-out Albert went back to training.
