Louisiana-bred star Heitai retired


Heitai, who used his exceptional speed to become one of the all-time richest Louisiana-breds, has been retired, according to Frank Rowell, who bred and raced the horse with his wife, Barbara. Heitai is being let down at a farm near Evangeline Downs in Louisiana and in the next month will head to the North Texas town of Sanger. He will be a riding horse for the Rowell family and could delve into barrel racing, said Frank Rowell.
