This flashy young bay gelding with chrome checks all the boxes of what everyone says they are looking for: he is lightly raced, sound, well put together and a good mover, has a good sport horse pedigree, and he has unlimited potential for a new career. His trainer, who sent us the photos and video, says that after 7 starts in which he has yet to finish better than fourth, it is obvious that racing is not his best game and that he is better suited for a different job. He is fully eligible for the 2021 RRP. She says that he is sound with very clean legs and no vices. She reports that he can be a bit timid at first with new people, but that once he gets to know you he loves you. Named after an indigenous tribe from the southwest, and a mountain range and national monument in Arizona, he is by Alpha, who is a son of Bernadini and a grandson of AP Indy, out of a mare by Colonel John who is a son of Tiznow. Quiet American, Fappiano, Northern Dancer, Alydar, adn Secretariat are other notable names in his pedigree. In the two jog videos that the trainer sent to us, we observed a horse who was good to handle, with a light balanced trot and good reach from his shoulders. He has the uphill build of a sport horse, and since he is still growing, he should get bigger, and should fill out to be quite impressive. Sound young lightly raced geldings tend to be quite popular, so call soon if you are interested in making Chiricahua your next sport horse partner.
