The Virginia horse community and Shenandoah Downs harness track honoured Re Elect during their Veteran’s Day promotion.

The 25-year-old gelding stood on the track with Maggi Romano while the National Anthem played, to pay special tribute to the veterans in the stands.

Re Elect's last race was at Colonial Downs in 2002. He then went on to a second career in the Indiana National Guard, where he served 17 years. He was retired as Sergeant First Class in 2020. Shenandoah Downs fans were eager to meet the true equine military hero.

It is amazing to see the life that many Standardbred retirees can have a second career with a little help from their owners.
