AMERICAN A P, 2020 16.2h bay gelding

Located on a farm next to the Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington NY

American A P offers what so many people say they are looking for: a young, big, sound, quiet and unflappable, good moving gelding who has unlimited potential for any new discipline. After just three lackluster races earlier this year, it was apparent to American A P’s connections that racing was not his strong suit, so he went to the owner’s farm which happens to be right next to the Finger Lakes Race Track. His trainer, who also rides and gallops him on the track, reports that he is just wonderful to ride, very sensible, attentive, respectful, and willing to do whatever you ask. Indeed,  when he was still on the track, his trainer knew that he was such a steady and levelheaded guy that he used him to pony back from the starting gate a young filly who had a meltdown at the gate.  A P was just the right guy to reassure her and accompany her safely back to the barn — amazing for a horse who was then just three years old!  We were told that American A P loads and trailers well, and is good in turn out with others, although he is playful.   Indeed, after his photo session, he was immediately turned out into a pasture with several other horses, and we observed him happily playing  –nothing unduly rough– with another gelding before both just decided to graze. American A P is a very easy keeper on the farm, and since he has been on the farm, he has been barefoot, and his feet have held up well. Once he is put back into work at least front shoes are recommended.  For his jog video, barefoot on uneven pavement, and with horses running in the pasture next to him, he was very well behaved, and displayed very good movement with good hind end engagement.  He has an ideal sport horse pedigree, with A P Indy and QuietAmerican lines, as indicated by his name. He is sired by Dr. Large, a son of A P Indy out of a mare from Mr. Prospector, Northern Dancer, and Buckpasser lines. His dam is by Quiet American, a Fappiano son whose offspring are sought after in the eventing world.
