Racehorse? Negative.

So like I said earlier, Santana was bred to race like most Thoroughbreds are. She obviously didnt make the cut which is how she ended up with me =)

According to equibase.com (a fantastic site where you can look up any racehorse and their racing history), she had a total of 5 starts. I wont go through all of them, but her first start was her best. The race was at Retama Park (see picture below) near San Antonio, Texas.
She finished 3rd in her first race which took place on September 9, 2009. I dont know much about horse racing, but the race was six furlongs on a dirt track. According to equibase.com, the footnotes about Santana stated, "SANTANA MARIA was forced out a bit at the start, raced off the pace while ridden along and failed to rally while up for the show".

As you can see, she just really never had a desire to race. She was started in 4 other races and didnt place in any of them. Her last race was December 6, 2009. Her total earnings...get ready for this massive number...$1068.

And, just for kicks since I mentioned her registration yesterday, here is what her papers look like:
