To start, JD is the grandson of one of the greatest racehorses of all time, Secretariat, the American Thoroughbred racehorse who was a Triple Crown Winner in 1973. Only, JD isn’t nearly as fast, but he is darn cute and has other redeeming qualities instead!

This is a short but sweet video of JD’s caretakers singing “Happy Birthday” to him, and his hilariously fantastic reaction! The horse couldn’t be happier as he flashes everyone a HUGE smile, showing off his massive pearly whites. Everyone starts laughing because, well, JD is authentic. And he even blew out the candles!

Although it looks like a real cake that you and I would eat, it’s actually a gourmet “Happy Birthneigh” cake made specifically for horses. And according to his caretaker, no he didn’t eat the candles! Happy birthday and many more, JD!
