Biography of Sarge (Satan’s War)

One of New Heights Therapy’s most recent popular equine members, Sarge, passed quietly and peacefully on June 9, 2015 after a long battle with a respiratory illness. He was born on March 25, 1988 under the name of Satan’s War and was the grandson of legendary Triple Crown champion Secretariat. He began his racing career under the ownership of David Guillot. After two years of racing and earning $57,063 in purse money, Satan as he was later referred to, was retired and given to the New Orleans Police Department’s Mounted Division for a second career. For almost two decades Satan became a notable and popular figure at Mardi Gras and particularly in the French Quarter under regular rider Officer Wayne Rumore. Then in early 2011, Officer Rumore called retired Officer Al Hynes in an attempt to find a “retirement” home for his beloved equine companion. A few days later Satan was delivered to New Heights Therapy center under the name Sarge. He quickly gained popularity after ABC Channel 26 reported that the horse, now known as “Sarge”, was the latest addition to the New Heights stable. Clients, staff members and volunteers all adored him. Thanks Sarge!
