Located at a farm in Avon NY, where he can be seen in person with an appointment
Hurricane Andy is the sort of horse that anyone should want in their barn! He is described as a very calm and sweet horse, who loves hanging out with his gelding turnout buddies. And on the track he was a model of consistency with a great work ethic, always trying hard and bringing his best. In his 29 starts, he won 10 races, with an additional 6 seconds and 4 thirds, accumulating over $110,000 in earnings. With so many wins, there were increasingly few races that he would be eligible to compete in, and when the Finger Lakes racing season was delayed this year due to COVID, his owner/breeder decided that the wonderful Andy had earned a great retirement and sent him back to the farm where he was born and raised so that he could find an ideal new home and career. The farm owner informed us that she got a vet assessment on Andy when he arrived, and he is reported to be sound. He has already been let down, so he is ready to restart in a new career. In the jog video that the farm owner sent to us, Andy shows a flowing walk and a lovely trot with good push from behind and good reach from the shoulders. Andy last raced in September of 2019, so he should be eligible to compete in the 2021 RRP. Andy can go in any direction…. eventing, dressage, hunter paces, foxhunting, trail riding… we think he will be happy and bring his great brain and work ethic to whatever you want him to do. Andy has a pedigree full of stout old TB lines that are known for producing good sport horses. His sire is Key Contender, who is by Fit to Fight (from the Bold Ruler line) out of a Key to the Mint mare. Andy’s dam, Crashing Through, is by Senor Speedy out of a Best Turn granddaughter. Ribot, Turn-to, Princequillo, Bold Ruler — the durable coveted great TB lines of the past — are all prominent in his pedigree to an extent not often seen in modern TBs. Andy’s younger half brother out of Crashing Through was placed through FLF last year, and he is demonstrating gorgeous jumping form, great movement, is sweet and quiet like Andy, and is already enjoying going on hunter paces and cross country schooling.
Note: because Andy is located at a private farm, you must contact the farm owner to make an appointment to come see him. She said she could ride him to show how he goes under tack.
Price: $1,000 very good home essential
