Exciting young sport horse prospect! He has the build, sport horse pedigree, athletic movement, and temperament to take you far in eventing or H/J disciplines. SInce he is only three, he is likely to grow some more and top out at over 16h. After just five races in which he has yet to hit the board, it is obvious that racing is not the game for Jump Starter. His trainer says that he loves to gallop, and trains well in the morning, but that hasn’t translated into success in the afternoon races. She reports that he is sound, good to deal with and work around, a good eater, and has no vices. As a bonus, she reports that he is very neat in his stall — something that any groom/stall cleaner will greatly appreciate! Jump Starter is sired by Micromanage, a son of Medaglia D’Oro from the coveted ElPrado/Sadler’s Wells sire line. MIcromanage has sired several horses who have become successful eventers/jumpers; indeed, Micromanage himself was retired from stud duty and retrained as an eventer. Jump Starter’s dam Red to Positive is by Jump Start, a son of AP Indy — everyone that we know who has a Jump Start offspring loves them and is always looking for these bloodlines for sport horses. We listed Red to Positive ten years ago, and her groom at the track described her as a sweetheart who was wonderful to work with. It sounds like she has passed her great temperament on to her son.
