Hello gorgeous! This guy certainly got our attention with his chiseled Arab-like head, dazzling dapples, strong shoulder and solid boned conformation. Benny’s trainer says he is sound and she emphasized that while he gets a bit strong at the track, on her farm when he is getting turn out he is just a “good, good guy.” She has had him on her farm during the last three winters and she said he is just a pleasure to work with and he is good in turn out with other horses. Benny showed very good movement for his jog video, with a flowing walk, and strong push from behind that suggests to us that eventing and dressage might be ideal new careers for him. Benny has had 58 starts with 23 top three finishes and over $100,000 in earnings, so he has shown his heart and durability… and he’s eligible for the war horse awards at the RRP Makeover. He has a great sport horse pedigree. His sire, here Comes Ben, is by Street Cry out of a Danzig and Halo line mare. Benny’s dam is by Royal Academy, a son of Nijinsky, and is out of a daughter of Grey Dawn. Benny’s tail female line is the famous La Troienne mare line, the best in the US TB stud book. Big sound grey geldings tend to be very popular offerings, so don’;t hesitate if you are interested in making Benny and Alex your new sport horse star!
