Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY.
He may not be as big as his NBA namesake, but we think this adorable fancy moving gelding is a slam dunk to be an MVP in any new equestrian career. James is ready to move on from the track because, unlike his namesake, he’s not lighting up the scoreboard in the races; he has yet to win in 14 starts, although he has garnered several placings. His trainer says he is very kind and easy to handle, and very quiet. She says he is nice to ride — “anyone can get on him” she reports. James has spent winters on her farm, ans she says that he turns out well with other horses. She thinks James would make a great horse for a kid working with a trainer to help with the retraining process, because of his size and sweetness — but he’s ideal for smaller adults too. She reports that James is very sound and has never had any issues, and we observed clean legs. For his jog video James showed off a beautiful, big strided and floaty toe- pointing trot that had us seeing visions of cleaning up in the children’s hunters at the big shows! With his solid body and big movement, James will ride and feel like a much bigger horse than he is, so don’t let his wither height deter you from such a great sport horse prospect. He is a son of the great Big Brown, out of a mare by Cryptoclearance. His pedigree is chock full of great sport horse sire lines — Fappiano, Blushing Groom, Roberto, Hoist the Flag, Danzig, Damascus.
