Sean Avery the Horse is a 5-year old gelding who won yesterday's $75,900 Longfellow Stakes at Monmouth Park in New Jersey. He improved his career record to 5-0-2 (win, place, show).
Yes, no sloppy seconds.
Favored 7-5 heading into the six furlong, six-horse race and paid $4.80 to win, he sat second most of the way before making his push on the final turn, winning by 11 and 3/4-lengths.

Sean Avery the hockey player is friends with Black Swan Stable owner John DeStefano and both are fans of fashion. As you'll see in this video from 2009, Sean Avery the horse is just as engaging as Sean Avery the hockey player:
