Update June 2016: Console is now located at a farm near Whitney Point NY, which is off of Interstate 81, in between Ithaca and Binghamton. He has had some lunging work and turn out time, but the person who took him from the track last fall has not had time to do much retraining, and due to circumstances beyond her control and that have nothing to do with the horse, she now needs to find him a new home, where his unlimited potential can be realized. She reports that he has a great personality and is easy to work with, and has no vices.
Here is his write up from when we first listed him at the track in 2015:
They say that good things can come in plain brown wrappers, and we think this horse is indeed a good thing for those of you who are looking for a serious sport horse prospect. Uphill build, good bone, sound, lofty movement, and Dynaformer breeding…the ideal package for an event prospect. His trainer says that after Console won a race earlier this summer and had to move up to tougher conditions, he just doesn’t seem to be trying or running well like he used to. So he thinks it is a good time to find him a new career. He says Console is sound, and a good horse to handle and work with. We admired his well put together balanced frame, strong shoulder, and uphill build. We noticed a very slight, old and set, very tight and cold bow, and his trainer verified that it has caused no issues at all with racing. Console was barefoot, and because his trainer had stopped on him a few weeks ago, he was very exuberant for his jog video, but we could see a big lofty stride with good reach once he leveled out. To get a further impression of his movement, we watched the video of his winning race this summer, and we saw a big fluid galloping stride that should eat up the cross country course. Console is by Kela, out of a mare by Dynaformer and a Blushing Groom mare. This is a dam line made for sport! We think Consoles Gotta Go may just be the diamond in the rough bargain of the season, so you gotta go call on him fast!
Price: $500 negotiable
