Cold Sober, 2015, 16.2 h, chestnut gelding

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). His connections describe this blaze –faced chestnut gelding as, “big, young, sound and handsome”. And as this confident boy stepped out of the barn, we whole-heartedly agree that this sound bite succinctly says it all. He really is the entire package!
We observed a big, balanced, well-proportioned body with a long, sloping shoulder and long, gracefully arched neck supported by solid underpinning with correct and clean legs and feet.
He’s lightly raced, with only 18 starts, in which he chalked up 2 wins and lifetime earnings exceeding $39,000.  He’s described as having speed, but not liking to run; and we were told that he does better at the farm. So after his last race earlier in the week, his people have decided to move this very handsome boy on to his next career.
His handler stated that he has no stable vices. We observed him being perfectly polite and respectful during his photo shoot but were also told that, “he’s a lot of horse, high energy, and strong”, so this gorgeous and self-assured gelding would probably do best with an experienced OTTB handler to help him reach his full potential. But what potential!!! He has a huge ground covering walk and is naturally well-balanced with a light, airy trot displaying even cadence, suspension and push from behind. With his striking beauty and movement, we think he’d be a dynamo in the dressage ring! But by the ever popular sport horse sire Frost Giant, he’s certainly got the pedigree for the eventing world too. And with his confidence, strength and speed, he could be a spectacular event prospect as well. On the distaff side, he’s out of a Dehere mare who traces linage back to Secretariat and Mr.Prospector.
So if you are looking for a “big, young, sound and handsome” dressage or event prospect, you’d better sober up and call quickly. He won’t be on the market for long!
