Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
This handsome solid boned gelding impressed us with his strong shoulder and hind end, and his friendly and alert expression. His trainer says that he is sound, has no issues, is a good horse to be around and work with, and that during the off season when he is at her farm he is quiet, great to handle and good in turn out with other horses. Bustin had raced 4 days before we saw him, and just walked in the shed row in the interim, so he was happy and a tad frisky to be outside. He showed good movement with a light and balanced trot. He has been a good durable hard trying racehorse, with 68 starts and 25 top three finishes, but this year he is not showing the same enthusiasm for racing, so his trainer thinks it is time to let him find a new career. He can go in any direction and has no limitations. He shows the solid body and athleticism and work ethic to make a good barrel horse, or eventing, jumping or dressage. He is by Bustin Stones, who is a son of City Zip; his dam is by Brocco who is from the Kris S./Roberto sire line so coveted in sport horse disciplines.
