Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). His owner (who has groomed and galloped this gorgeous boy since he was two) describes Poe as ‘a Cadillac ride’. We’d have to agree that this beautiful gelding is like a very flashy Cadillac… one with all the luxury options and upgrades!
At his stall, we immediately fell in love with his kind and intelligent face. We observed a well-mannered horse, with a strong connection to his owner. Outside, he posed politely and was exceptionally people-friendly, begging all the volunteers for peppermints. He has a big, solid, balanced body supported by clean, sturdy underpinning and propelled by powerful, well-muscled hindquarters. He displayed a nice overreaching walk and a lofty, forward trot.
We were told he is sound, with “no blemishes, no work done, no injections, and no pre-race meds”. We observed a very clean legged horse who moved freely despite having raced earlier in the week. Iampoe has an amazing sports pedigree too! He is by the ever-popular sport horse sire Frost Giant from an Honor and Glory mare and also has Hail to Reason (through Roberto) on his distaff side.
He is lightly raced with 24 starts in which he’s amassed 2 firsts, 3 seconds and 3 thirds. He hasn’t been on the boards since early July, and is no longer happy and competitive, so his owner seeks to find her beloved boy a great home where he will shine. She believes that he “could be anything”. We find this to be an accurate assessment! This handsome stunner could do well in a variety of disciplines, without any limitations.
But if you want the take the keys to this Cadillac of a horse, you had better act quickly! Frost Giant babies are always in high demand and comparable horses have placed very quickly.
