Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). We observed this gorgeous youngster stand patiently as he was being brushed in his stall. His handler was full of affectionate praise for this “good boy”. We noted his nice compact and well- balanced body with well-spring ribs and a long, sloping shoulder. Outside, his coat gleamed with a copper sheen on an overcast day, but he was “a little sharp” for his video (as any racing fit, young horse who had only hand-walked for the past four days since his last race on a blustery day with some rambunctious horses acting up on the walker nearby would be!). But good boy that he is, he always remained under control and respectful of his handler. We were told that he is very sound and has never had any ankle, knee or tendon issues. We observed clean legs and noted his free, elastic and athletic movement in both the walk and jog.
This youngster only has nine career starts with a first and a third. But fortunately for you, he’s owned by a breeder whose focus is concentrated on allowance and stakes quality horses, so his connections have decided to move him along. And this young gelding has a sports pedigree par excellence! FLF has placed several horses by his sire Discreet Cat, and they have all proven to be exceptionally good jumpers. His dam is by Red Ransom, who is by Roberto out of a Damascus mare. We think this boy has the pedigree and athleticism to be an excellent event or jumper prospect.
Discreet Ransom is another high-potential horse who would do best with an experienced OTTB handler who is patient enough to let him down for a brief period to disengage his brain from the track environment, in order to fully develop and mature to become the exceptional sport horse prospect that we think he will be!
