All we can say when we see the breathtaking and very flashy Doppleganger is WOW! He has such presence, and despite his huge size he is beautifully balanced, with a solid boned physique that should hold up well against warmbloods in the show hunter ring or dressage arena Doppleganger is unraced; he was showing top level talent, but he incurred a very slight 10% tear in a tendon over a year ago. The tendon was given the state of the art stem cell repair treatment and lots of time; his owner/trainer recently had it ultrasounded and the vet declared that it looked great, was fully healed, and the horse could go back into full race training. But it will now take until the end of the current race meet to get him race fit, and non-winners cannot race at NY tracks older than 6, so his owner/trainer realizes that racing time has simply run out for the spectacular Doppleganger. While this may be racing’s loss, it is surely the gain of the show hunter, dressage, or eventing disciplines! The potential of this big beauty is unlimited, and he is cleared for any discipline. He shows a lovely floaty trot with great suspension and cadence, and he is a friendly treat hound of a horse who is good to handle. Because he is so big and athletic, and has such tremendous sport potential, an experienced rider/trainer will be the best fit to take this guy to the levels he deserves to go to in a new career. Doppleganger is by international champion Leroidesanimaux, sire of Kentucky Derby and Dubai World Cup winner Animal Kingdom. The very best of homes is essential, and references will be required and checked.
