About Cooptado

Cooptado is a horse that anyone would be lucky to have in their barn! A 16h, 2010 gelding by Equal Stripes (ARG) out of Coordinada (ARG) by Ride the Rails, Cooptado was a champion 3-year-old in his home country of Argentina, winning the 1st and 3rd legs of the Argentinian Triple Crown, and finishing 2nd by a neck in the middle leg. In his 7 starts that year, he never finished worse than 3rd. And his career was just getting started! In the 6 years that followed, he raced in Singapore, Dubai, and America, winning in each country. By March 2019, Cooptado had earned a grand total of $1,193,150 on the track. Standing at stud wasn’t an option for the gelding, but this multiple group 1 winning millionaire still had plenty of zest and drive, so his owners at Imperial Racing LLC placed him at the MMSC to find a new career and a loving forever home. We have spent the summer getting to know Cooptado and giving him the time to transition from veteran globe-trotting warhorse to a sport horse enjoying a slower-paced life in a grassy paddock. And even though Cooptado gets handled like every other horse in our barn, everyone who meets him knows he’s special. He simply exudes an aura of class, confidence and intelligence, and with his engaging “horsenality”, there’s never a dull moment! This is a horse who will be competitive in any ring he chooses and who is seeking a partner of equal drive with whom to share the spotlight. Always considerate and gracious, Coop has clearly been well-handed his whole life, and we salute all who loved and cared for him on the track through 46 starts and 4 countries. If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime partner and friend, come meet Cooptado. You won’t be disappointed.

"The most well traveled horse I have ever known! What a legend.” — Maggie Wolfendale Morley, wife of Cooptado’s trainer Tom Morley
