This still growing, sweet faced gelding is described as very athletic, with a goofy personality, and very sound. “Dexter” (we thought Cheesy seemed like a better barn name) is a son of Frost Giant, who is a son of Giant’s Causeway out of a Gone West mare. These are very good sport/jumping lines. In addition, he has other good sport sires in his pedigree, such as Damascus, Buckpasser, and Secretariat. At only three years old, Dexter has some more growing and filling out to do. The winter is a great time to give him some let down and growing up time and come spring, you will have a beautiful, sound, mature gelding to work with. He stood very quietly despite the well-below-freezing wind today. Dexter’s legs are very clean and he has well balanced conformation. Despite just having his back shoes pulled, he showed nice sound movement on the pavement. He has reaching, flat kneed trot which makes us think he will make a nice hunter horse. However, his trainer thinks he would look good in a western saddle. A horse with his athletic build and sound, clean legs could go in any direction you please! We observed Dexter standing quietly to be groomed and his trainer reported he has no vices. Sure sounds like he would be a welcomed addition to any barn! Dexter will be wintered at a farm 1 mile from the race track after the track closes next week and he can be seen there. We think he will be scooped up before then and suggest you call quickly!
