This elegant big guy is by Scat Daddy, the sire of Justify, this year’s Triple Crown winner! While Back Scatter may not be in Justify’s rarefied air as a racehorse, he certainly has been a hard trying , big hearted guy who has 25 in the money finishes and over $131,000 in earnings. And he shares a shiny golden coat, size, substance, balance, great brain, and beautiful movement with his illustrious half sibling. Back Scatter’s owner says that while he is sound and still running fairly well, she does not want to bring him back to the races next year, so it is time to start finding him a perfect new home where his great looks and laid back demeanor will enable him to shine in a new career. We photographed him and took his jog video only a week after a race, and he was not stiff in the slightest — he showed off loose and flowing movement. With his balanced, flowing, light flat kneed trot with good reach from his shoulder, we can see him shining in the show hunter ring, but he sure does look like he would excel in dressage or cross country too. Back Scatter’s owner described him as a quiet great guy who is easy to work with. He showed off his sensible brain when she unhooked the lead rope, stepped back, and in the middle of the road, near the race track, completely loose, he just stood there, looking around without moving so much as a foot! His owner says Back Scatter is sound with no vices, but he does have an old set osselet on one ankle that doesn’t bother him at all and is now just a cosmetic issue. His dam is by Sejm, who is a son of Danzig. This is a special horse with the size, substance, and movement that everyone wants, and we look forward to following him in his new career!
