This lovely young gelding checks all the boxes — handsome, good mover, quiet, sound, great sport pedigree with the coveted sire Maria’s Mon his damsire, and very reasonably priced. He comes from a trainer who always has lovely well cared for horses, and we have placed many into new homes where they have found success in eventing or the H/J show ring. Mend Up showed some initial promise racing as a two year old, winning on the tougher NYRA circuit, but after that initial win he has not had much success racing, so his owner says it is time to find him a new career. He has only 12 starts, with one win and one third. The trainer says he is sound and clean legged, with a great personality — she says he loves attention. The trainer also reports that Mend Up is very nice to ride, well behaved. She says he is very quiet and good to handle. Mend Up is by Forty Tales, a son of Tale of the Cat. His dam, Dos Arriba, is by Maria’s Mon, who was rated as one of the best sires for TB sport horses in a recent issue of the RRP’s Magazine. Everyone we know who has a horse with Maria’s Mon close up raves about their temperament, athletic ability, and good brain. We have similar good reports about Forty Tales offspring. Mend Up last raced on August 17, so he is fully eligible for the 2021 RRP.
