Hayai is another youngster sired by Japan that isn’t showing racing ability, but wow does he ever have outstandig sport horse potential! Are you starting to notice a similarity in the Japan offspring that we have posted recently? Leggy, uphill athletic builds with great shoulders, good neck sets, alert intelligent expressions, dark brown, elegant, very good movement. Hayai certainly checks all those boxes. Our volunteers were very taken by this large youngster! For his age and size, it was noted how well he is put together. His connections report that he is extremely sensible for his age and that he gallops really well. They say he is very classy, warms up well before a race, and it just couldn’t be stressed enough how well behaved he is. On a cool, rainy day he stood patiently while we did his photo shoot and remained respectful of his handler during his jog video despite a lot of activity going on around him. For his jog video, he walked and jogged politely on a loose lead and showed off beautiful movement — lightness, suspension, good hind end , reach from the shoulders. He is reported to have no vices and is reported sound, and he has clean legs. He has had only three starts and has yet to hit the board. His sire Japan, a son of Medaglia D’Oro from the Sadler’s Wells sire line, is quickly gaining a reputation as an excellent sport horse sire. We have placed several Japan offspring over the last three years, and they have turned out to be very good movers and jumpers, who are successful in new careers including eventing, jumping, and eventing. To add to the attractive sport horse package, Hayai’s dam is by Stroll, a son of Pulpit. And his female family is one of the best in the US stud book –his 4th dam is a full sister to the great Round Table, and this female family has produced many stakes winners and champions on the track. Quality in the bloodlines can certainly bode well for a new sport horse career. Hayai is elegible for the 2022 RRP.
