Twins Are Recurring Theme In Makeover Competitor’s Life 

Lynn Sullivan and her OTTB Halo Carlos are making final preparations for the Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover competition to be held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., Oct. 12 to 17.

Sullivan has been prepping the 4-year-old gelding by Custom for Carlos to compete in the dressage portion of the event, reports America’s Best Racing. Though the chestnut’s racing career was less than stellar, with just one race, his claim to fame on the track was racing against his twin in a maiden claiming race at Delta Downs on Valentine’s Day 2020.

Equine twins are rare and survival of both foals is even more uncommon. Twins that then go on to race against one another are virtually unheard of. Sullivan, a Gemini, is no stranger to twins herself: Her dad was a twin and her husband is a twin.

Sullivan is an avid proponent of retired racehorses in second careers; she is the founder of Thoroughbred Athletes, Inc., an organization that assists horses retiring from racing, and the Sport of Kings Challenge, an all-discipline horse show that benefits OTTBs.

Sullivan continues to fine-tune Carlos’ training in the final weeks before the Makeover and is hopeful that he settles well into the potentially overwhelming environment of the Kentucky Horse Park. They are slated to show in the Rolex Arena on Thursday, Oct. 14, at 3:58 p.m.
