With the sweet but tough attitude of his sire and pleasing demeanor of his dam, Ollie was one of the sweetest yearlings in his crop. He's always peeking his head out of his stall with the occasional greeting whinny. Ollie is very playful and kind to other horses and staff, often gently nipping at the hindquarters of the other horses and the hair of his female grooms. He is also very energetic and rarely stops moving; Ollie is always prancing in place, but is mindful of where he places his feet. Ollie is a regal horse to look at who moves with the inherited class of his sireline. He's tough and stubborn when he wants to be, shedding his otherwise sweet temperament to make it clear when he truly wants something, but is otherwise a horse that is fairly easy to handle provided you let him do this own thing and don't try to control him overly much. Ollie is a horse that requires constant stimulation, but also overreacts to too much of it. As an older horse, he's definitely matured into a horse less likely to bolt at the suddenness of something, and we hope this'll play a role in making him a faster racehorse. Speaking of, you can always tell which horse is Ollie on the track; his mane is always plaited to avoid it getting in his way when he runs.
Leg Type: Front Runner
Ollie catches eyes in the paddock with his distinct demeanor and unique hair, almost at odds with his constant energy and prancing in place. He saddles quickly to get to the track earlier. Ollie LOVES racing and loves being out on the track. He thrives on being competitive and going fast. Gating is never a problem with Ollie. In fact, it seems as if he almost enjoys loading into the metal gate, standing calmly until they release them. It's probably because he knows he can run as soon as they open, and when they do Ollie is off like a bullet, speeding down the track. He's almost always the first one out, and he takes a position right at the front. He might go fast during the first quarter or so, but then he'll settle into a sprightly pace, seemingly unpressured by any horses who might settle alongside or just behind. He seems to have never ending stamina, keeping his pace and the lead throughout the entire race, but of course he's not stupid and knows how to rate himself until the end. Then, Ollie pushes himself to the limits in the final stretch, defending his lead. His menacing name comes from his running style, as the ominous truth is that Ollie always has something left in the tank to bring it home in the stretch.
