According to a social media post from his owners, Freaky Feet Pete has been retired from racing. The seven-year-old son of Rockin Image retires with a mark of 1:47.1 and earnings in excess of $1.6 million.
Freaky Feet Pete is slated to join the roster at Paul and Cathy Webb’s Ivy Lane Farm for the 2020 breeding season.
Freaky Feet Pete captured the attention of the racing world with a victory in the 2015 Breeders Crown at Woodbine. The horse won 15 of 17 races that season and more than $850,000 and brought fame to the Indiana breeding program.
Owned now by Mary Jo and Marty Rheinheimer and trained by Marty, Freaky Feet Pete’s name was always linked to trainer Larry Rheinheimer. Together, the duo earned respect nationally before Larry’s untimely passing at Hoosier Park.
Bred by Larry Rheinheimer, Freaky Feet Pete is an Indiana bred through and through. He is out of the Indiana sired Pilgrims Punch mare Skyway Lori, who took a mark of 1:54.1 and earned more than $56,000 during her racing career. She has been a productive broodmare for the Rheinheimers, not missing a year with a foal from 2005 through 2015. Every one of her foals raced with seven of 11 earnings six figures. (Indiana Harness)
