We were quite impressed with the powerful solid boned build and strong shoulder on this guy — he just spoke athleticism and “sport horse potential” to us. But he was pumped up with excitement at being asked to jog outside on a crisp morning, just out of the cold water wash rack, when he had not done more than walk the shed row for a few weeks since his last race, so he did not relax and show his true movement and potential for his jog video. We saw tantalizing hints of very good movement; to get a better impression we watched the video of his one winning race, and in the gallop out and trot back we saw great movement, a big balanced efficient and ground covering stride. The trainer says he is a good horse to work with, has no vices, and he does well in turn out at his farm. He said that after finally winning a race after several tries last year, Friendship Seven has not been competitive in the next level of race conditions against winners, so it is time to find him a new career. The trainer reports that Friendship Seven has had some fluid on his knee, but that he has not been sore on the knee, and that it has not caused him any problems. On the day we photographed him his legs were clean and we could not feel any fluid or heat in the knee. He has 14 starts, with one win and 4 seconds. He has raced this summer, so he is fully eligible for the 2021 RRP. He has a very good sport horse pedigree, one oriented towards turf racing. His sire Soldat was a turf stake winning son of the great sire War Front, a son of Danzig. His dam is by Dehere, a son of Deputy Minister out of a Secretariat mare. Friendship Seven’s second dam was a major turf stakes winning daughter of Nodouble, a source of durable stamina in TB lines.
