Looking for Mario - retired chestnut tb

Hi there. I used to go riding at Bickleigh Stables in Plymouth, and I always used to ride, I believe to be, a 15-16hh chestnut tb gelding called Mario/Mario's Dream. About 4-5 years ago I heard the owner had retired him to an ex racehorse retirement centre in Devon. However when I tried to locate him, another friend had told me she had seen him in a horse retirement centre in Cornwall, she couldn't remember the name of the centre but she thought it began with 'rainbow'. I've been looking for him for 4-5 years now, and I would just like to know that he's safe and sound and any good/bad news as I know he must be quite old now. To my knowledge, he has no white marks on him whatsoever. Any info greatly appreciated!

Also - I have tried contacting nearly every possible ex racehorse retirement centre in Devon but to no such luck.

I'm not aware of his age unfortunately. I tried contacting the stables but they have no useful information for his whereabouts or previous owner.

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! I will try contacting them now. Would that mean he's in Ireland currently, or his birth place was in Ireland?

Also, if it's any help to anyone, I believe he was retired due to a leg problem.

just another update, i know this is a bit late now, mario was put down on the 18th july 2011, this was due to a heart murmour and thickend valves which could have caused a heart attatck to occur at any minute. As you can see by the photos he had been looking very well up right till the very end. sadly missed little horse x
