Looking for a big young gelding who’s a nice light mover, has a sport horse pedigree to drool over, and a kind laid back personality?Formal Start is all that! This huge son of Jump Start is described by his handler as a big teddy bear. She says he’s sound, but he has sometimes bled when he races, so the owner wants to move him on to a new career. In our experience horses that have pulmonary bleeding at race speed rarely have this issue once off the track, even in upper level sport disciplines. From the photos sent to us, we admired his strong shoulder, deep girth. In his video he shows a light, flowing big strided trot with good reach from his shoulders. Taken just two days after he raced, he shows no post race stiffness at all. Formal Start raced in early August, so he’s fully eligible for the 2021 RRP. His sire, Jump Start, is very popular with both eventers and hunter/jumper riders; everyone we know who has been lucky enough to have a Jump Start offspring loves them! His dam is by Two Punch, another sire coveted as a sport horse sire. Big, sound, good moving geldings with excellent sport horse potential are what everyone is looking for, so you should call quickly on this one!
