Major, a 29 year old dark bay thoroughbred, retired to Ryerss Farm on March 13, 2015. As a youngster, Major raced under the name of “Gator John” and then came to the Philadelphia/South Jersey area once his racing days were over. He was lucky to spend most of that time in the Pennypack Park section, where, for the past 20 years, he could pretend he was still on his old race track and show off by stretching those legs into unlawfully fast sprints that kept him young for so long!  

Major has now become a resident of the Upper Barn herd at Ryerss and can be found enjoying a good retirement in that historic part of the farm, along with his 19 “new friends”.
