LOVER’S LEAP, 2015 16.1h chestnut gelding – retained for racing

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY

We admired this very handsome dappled beauty for his lofty athletic movement, great shoulder, and enticing aptitude for upper level sporting disciplines. His owner says that he “is as sound as they come,” and that jockeys who have ridden him in races report that he is “the soundest horse they ride at Finger Lakes.” Lover’s Leap is reported as a good feeling horse at the track, but “an angel” who mellows out at the farm and is good in turn out with other geldings. Lover’s Leap has been a successful racehorse, with  34 starts, 4 wins, 9 additional top three finishes and over $110,000 in earnings. But he has been less successful on the track this year, so with the race meet ending soon, his owner wants to move him on to a new career where we think that Lover’s Leap’s athleticism and movement will make him a star. We think he has top level potential in eventing, or the H/J ring.  Lover’s Leap is by Bridgetown, who is a son of the great sire Speightstown, a son of Gone West. His dam is from the Kris S./Roberto sire line. This gorgeous, sound, clean legged, and good moving young gelding is an excellent upper level prospect.

Price: $5,000 negotiable
