Ponies of the Track - Applesauce: The TV Star

For the viewers who watched the recent Breeders’ Cup World Championships on NBC or NBC Sports, there was an eye-catching equine star that stood apart from the Thoroughbred athletes like American Pharoah. Seeing former jockey Donna Brothers aboard a stunning horse as she interviews the winning jockey following a prestigious race has become a staple for any horse racing fan who tunes in to these broadcasts and this year’s edition of the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland was no different. This year, she paired up with an eye-catching Appaloosa named Applesauce.

Joining Brothers as she reported from horseback, Applesauce caught his fair share of airtime. Applesauce, owned by longtime pony rider Monnie Goetz, has become a familiar face at Keeneland and Churchill Downs. He is a regular lead pony at these Kentucky tracks, or one of the horses that is used to escort the racehorses in the post parade prior to a race. . ."
