Doctor Decherd

Doctor Decherd is a thoroughbred horse. A foal of 2003, he was a contender for the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing in 2006. Doctor Decherd was on the Derby trail in 2006, and ran against Barbaro in the Holy Bull stakes (click the Holy Bull video), won the Aventura Stakes ridden by Jockey Shaun Bridgmohan [1] and had dropped down into the 4K claiming ranks in the spring of 2008. Because of the proactive approach to this horse's trainer, by FOBs Linda & Patty, to offer a retirement home for DD - he was retired from the track in September 2008 and brought to Texas for rehab and retraining into a second career. DD has sponsors amongst the FOBs all over the country (and Canada), who contributes to his upkeep and all "own" a little piece this horse.[2]



Doctor Decherd is owned by Mike McCarty and is trained by Steve Asmussen.[3] In all of his lifetime starts he has been ridden by Shaun Bridgmohan or Roman Chapa. Doctor Decherd was bred in Kentucky by Calumet Farm.
