all in Aftercare

A warhorse in every sense of the word with nine wins and 14 on-the-board placings for more than $155,000 in earnings during his 60 start career, Two Term Leader didn't take long to find a new home after retiring in August 2017.

When Allison Bortz first heard of warhorse Art Series, she had no idea she would end up owning the mare. But it just took one look at Art Series for Bortz to know she belonged in her barn.

“A friend of mine was looking at purchasing Art Series for herself,” Bortz said. “However, she thought Art Series would be a better fit for me.
