Located at a farm in Shortsville, NY, very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track
This big, still growing guy has an uphill build, solid bone, and strong shoulder — and an excellent pedigree. If you have the knowledge and patience to continue his rehab from a bowed tendon he incurred in his only race in mid-August — and that he has always jogged sound on – then you are going to have quite the bargain prospect for many disciplines. Donny’s owner/trainer describes him as a lovable horse with a big personality, and a tough and hardy horse. He says that Donny can sometimes show his youthful exuberance, and this trait, combined with his need for rehab, suggests that he is better suited for an experienced rider/OTTB retrainer. For his in hand jog video at the farm, Donny showed very good movement, with a big stride and good reach and lightness — and he was barefoot and showed no indication that the tendon bothers him. With some additional time off and then patient gradual restarting, Donny’s owner/trainer is confident that he will hold up for anything. Donny is sired by Daredevil, sire of recent Preakness winner Swiss Skydiver. Daredevil is by More than Ready from the Halo sire line. Donny’s dam Battenkill is a stakes winning daughter of Rahy from the Blushing Groom sire line, and she is out of a mare from Nijinsky and Hoist the Flag lines.
