All of those who voted for Hermosillo as the 2011 New Jersey-bred champion Handicap Horse and Horse of the Year consider him something special. Now he’s got the pictures to prove it.

            The 8-year-old bark bay gelding was selected by horseware.com to be the new model for the company’s Rambo line of horse products, which include blankets. The company delivered a large shipment of blankets and other supplies to the barn of trainer Stephen DiMauro after Hermosillo’s photo shoot.

            “I don’t know why they picked him for their magazine, but I think he may even be the one they use on the cover,” said DiMauro.

The son of Sea of Secrets and the Black Tie Affair mare Exquisite Affair was bred by Eddie Broome and is owned by Kenwood Racing LLC. He has won 11 of 63 career starts and earned $636,351. Last out he was sixth here in the John J. Reilly Handicap for state-breds.
