The Dorsey family bought this race horse from Ballyclare Farm in Virginia, where he had ended up directly off the track. Justine has been working with him and hopes to ride trails and do hunter/jumper activities. Star is putting on weight and becoming much more acquainted with life off the track.

Many track horses meet a less than desirable fate after their winning days are over, so Justine felt compelled to retrain Star and get him into respectable shape. Star is boarded at Country Cedars Farms.
