Located in a farm very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). We always enjoy listing horses from this barn and this big boy did not disappoint! “Mark” is described as a barn favorite and we could certainly see why. Mark has a gorgeous, uphill build. We could see him excelling as an eventing horse, but surely he could go in many different sporting directions. His handlers described him as classy and elegant. They also report he is a “total love bug” who loves attention. We were able to get info from his exercise rider as well who reports that he is very nice to ride. His trainer reports that he is retiring sound and without any stable vices. They also report that he LOVES hard peppermints (not the soft ones though), so a home that will provide lots of his preferred treats is a must. Mark has had a successful career on the track earning over $133,000 in his 44 starts with 6 wins, 5 seconds, and 9 thirds, a testament to his durability, heart, and intelligence. His connections are quite attached to this big guy, so references will be checked to ensure he is going to a great home. When we took his pictures, it was bitter cold and very icy. Unfortunately there was no safe way to get outdoor pictures, so these hardly do him justice. You will have to make a visit to see him in person to truly appreciate him! He is by Noonmark out of a Pulpit mare. Mark would be a fabulous RRP 2020 prospect!
