Martino, 2014, 16h bay gelding

Located at a farm adjacent to the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). Martino’s trainer stopped on as we headed out and told us about this sweet gelding who is on a farm adjacent to the track. Martino has been a successful race horse with a decent record of 25 starts, 2 wins, 6 seconds and 2 thirds. Alas he sustained a hind sesamoid injury last March (2018) and has been successfully rehabbed. He was given the appropriate amount of stall rest, hand walking, is currently being turned out in a round pen and ready to be restarted. We think he could be a fun project because his brain is probably in a great place to transition easily to life at a farm. Martino’s handler stated that he is good to work with on the ground and has been a good patient. His xrays, both at time of injury and the recent ones indicating he is ready to restart, are available for review by your veterinarian. Martino has also had his shots and, of course, has a current Coggins. His trainer thinks that he would be suitable for low level disciplines and would look equally as good under English or Western tack.

Price: $1000neg to a good home
