Messorio is a very classy son of Raffie’s Majesty, and he has inherited the intelligence, great movement and durability that Raffie’s Majesty offspring are known for. We admired Messorio’s handsome uphill build and great shoulder, his intelligent kind eye, and clean legs and very nice balanced light movement. This horse is a durable athlete who has been claimed often and been through many barns at Finger Lakes, and he still is happy, eager to go to work, and has so much more to give in a new career to the person wise and lucky enough to step up for him. The man who showed us Messorio spoke little English, but we could understand his admiring smile, obvious affection for the horse, and his oft repeated phrase of “tranquillo” to describe the gallant Messorio — he is a quiet and very good boy. We also spoke to prior connections and others on the track who know Messorio and have long admired him, and the consensus is that he is classy, smart, sound, and a great horse. Messorio deserves the best of homes for his second career, and he has unlimited potential without any limitations for any discipline you want to do with him. You would be foolish to pass up this wonderful, sound, classy athlete just because he is of a more mature age. In our experience, this is the kind of horse that you can take off the track today, and take on a hunter pace or cross country ride next weekend. We also know of at least two of Messorio’s half siblings out of the same dam who are succeeding as show hunters.
