Additional Details:

Foolish Pleasure was named for a great race horse. He wasn't as famous as the horse, but he was pretty good, racing most of his career of 100 races at the top A level and competing in a couple of Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. His last race at the Palm Beach Race track was back in August and he won it. Since he stopped racing even though he was winning, that is usually a sign that there was a minor injury. It looks like they hoped he would return to racing after a few months off, but that didn't happen, so he was eventually retired and sent to the Birmingham Alabama Race Track adoption program to be transported to adoption groups. He seems fine now. Foolish Pleasure raced at 73lbs and turned 3 on April 25th. His sire is NMS Sweet Thing and his dam is from Australia, Manyara Bale*. Foolish Pleasure passed his cat test without any interest. He also was very good with the small dog he met. He seems like a calm sensitive guy. A little overwhelmed by all the changes. He is sweet and walks up to people for attention when out of his kennel or on leash. He backs up nervously if you reach for him when he is in his kennel. He didn't shy away from the small kids he met when on leash. He is just a little timid at first and seems like he will warm up fast. More as we get to know him.
