The time had come to draw the curtain on Seebald's racing career although everybody at Pond House was saddened to see him retire.  He has been thought of as a star since the day he arrived and everybody enjoyed riding him at home.  Vikki and Frankie both looked after him and they were both be sad to see him leave.

The German bred gelding has been a wonderful horse and given his proud owners Steve McManaman and Robbie Fowler lots of fun times on the racecourse since arriving at Pond House from Germany in 1999.  He has proven to be a very versatile performer running a total of 55 times and winning 15 races under all three codes, flat, hurdles and fences and a total of £372,165 in win and place prize money.  Although he has won 11 times, all under A P McCoy in England, he has also run some great races in defeat.  His most notable defeat was when finishing second to the great Best Mate in the William Hill Chase at Exeter in 2004 under Tom Scudamore - he was only beaten by a short head!

Seebald is enjoying his retirement just outside of Tiverton with Tom and Charlotte Scudamore.  He has been a welcome addition to their menagerie of other animals.
