Archie’s Echo competed for modest purses at small-time tracks. From ages three to six he worked hard, won some, and lost some. He visited the winner’s circle at Atlantic City, Suffolk Downs in Massachusetts, and Rockingham Park in New Hampshire. Like most claiming horses, he passed through several ownerships and trainers’ barns, retiring in 1995 with 7 wins, 6 seconds, 4 thirds for $32,324. Twenty years later, he turned up at a slaughter auction facility. By the look of him, Archie’s recent history had been rough, and ulceration had blinded one eye. Parx Racing Vice President Sam Elliott bought the 26 year old. Turning For Home provided his transportation, medical care and a temporary home. Longtime trainer and Thoroughbred advocate Lorita Lindemann, who had groomed Archie early in her career, facilitated his retirement to Old Friends, which thanks all whose efforts and financial support have provided Archie with a secure, dignified home for the rest of his life.
