ATSUI, 2019 16h Dark Bay Gelding
Located at the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). This handsome gentleman has SO many things to love about him! He is a son of Japan, a Medaglia D’Oro son who is already proving himself to be an excellent sire of sport horses. His name is a clever combination of his sire’s name, and his dam’s Miss Sizzle, since Atsui means “thick” and “hot” in Japanese. He is a long-legged elegant looking young horse and is very light on his big feet. He has a nice uphill build, big feet, huge sloping shoulder, and gorgeous dapples! He was very quiet on this cold, wet, rainy day. He walked politely on a loose lead despite the yucky morning. He showed off a big, springy jog which made us think he would excel as a dressage or eventing horse. Certainly he could go in many directions. At only two years old, he will continue to grow and fill out more, so we think he will finish out as a pretty big guy. Since he’s only two, he would benefit from some time off to finish growing and be a horse before being restarted. He will be a clean slate in the Spring. After two races, in which he ran well back in the pack, his trainer realizes that racehorse is not the best career for him… but we think sport horse is an ideal new career. His sire Japan is from the Medaglia D’Oro/Sadler’s Wells sire line, and his dam is a granddaughter of Unbridled’s Song and Grand Slam — both outstanding sport horse sires as well, He will be eligible for RRP in 2022.
Price: $3500 negotiable
