Hopper Dropper, 2013, 16.1 h, bay gelding

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). We
admired this big, handsome gelding as he walked out. He’s described as being
a good boy who is “nice in his stall”. We found him to be agreeable, and a
little bit of a camera ham. He stood well and looked for treats in a very
good-natured way during his photo shoot. We marveled at his shimmery coat,
as well as his nicely balanced and proportioned body, well-muscled
hindquarters, and solid underpinning with clean legs. Our overall impression
was that he is a big, clean and sturdy horse.
“Hoppy” is described as being “good to ride, but a good-feeling horse”,
sound and athletic.  We saw a little of this in his video with minor flashes
of exuberance that were contained by his handler. He showed cute, balanced,
graceful, and athletic movement during his jog video.
He’s had a successful race career with 36 starts, 2 wins and over $130,000
in earnings. Hoppy is by Touch Gold, out of a Alydeed mare and has
successful sport horse sires (including Buckpasser and Storm Cat) in his
pedigree. At six, he has travelled enough to be seasoned, and is the perfect
age to restart and get right down to business in his new career. With his
athleticism and build we think he has strong potential as an event prospect.
So don’t drop the ball on this one, and hop on over to Finger Lakes to check
him out before the snow flies!
Price: $1,500 neg.
