Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Retires Two Mounted Unit Members

Valor and Major, both horses with the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, have been retired after years of service to the community. Valor is a 28-year-old off-track Thoroughbred who was donated to the sheriff’s office 17 years ago. Valor worked the Super Bowl and the Republican National Convention; he was also deployed to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. Among his many accolades was being named the 2017 The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program Thoroughbred of the Year.

Major is a 19-year-old Hanoverian trained in dressage who was donated to the sheriff’s office by a community member. Major also worked the Republican National Convention; he has also worked the Florida Classic and other high-profile events.

The horses will be retired at the Sarasota Polo Club.
