A Colorful Distraction

If you happen to be planning a trip to Ireland during the middle of June, you may want to make Portmarnock Raceway a stop on your trip, especially on June 19 when 25 skewbald pacers will be competing on Painted Mile Day, a day dedicated to the colorful pacers.

A Skewbald Pacer

While skewbalds can rarely compete against the traditionally, colored standardbred, they still breed them in Ireland and Great Britain with their numbers increasing.  Mind you, we will never see the day when skewbalds will seize the breeding market and we will see pinto-colored horses all over, but it is a colorful change of pace.  Something you most likely will never see on these shores.
