ben-collageShapleigh Benz – We call him Ben

No one believed Ben could be a race horse,he was Maine bred after all!

How Ben came to be a race horse is a long story including an injury which could have claimed his life.

There were many days of training on the farm before the day arrived for Ben to go to the track at Suffolk Downs.  His first few days left him very nervous – about every thing: shadows, water puddles, sounds from trains and planes.
