This handsome fellow is just as much of a charmer as his kind eye and sweet “baby face” would suggest. He is described by his connections as an easy keeper, who has no stable vices and is easy to work with. He likes to go to work on the track, but they predict that he will settle into a post track career with ease because of his laid back attitude in the shed row. “Sensy” as he is called by his friends, has raced 7 times this season, hitting the board 6 of those times (including two wins) but his trainer feels it’s best for him to step down from racing as his competitive edge seems to be waning and the company he’d need to keep on the track is getting faster. His trainer reports that he is sound, and although he was due for the farrier at the time of our meet and greet and was missing a shoe for his jog, he did trot nicely for his video. He displayed a fluid trot with lightness and good rhythm. He is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP. Our volunteers could picture this adorable gelding in a pleasure home, but he certainly has the athleticism to go any direction. He is solidly built and will take up the leg of a taller rider. He has an excellent pedigree. He is by top sire and Derby winner Street Sense, and his dam Blush is a stakes producer sired by Menifee out of a Rahy mare. Dixieland Band, Blushing Groom, His Majesty, and Halo are other notable sport horse sires in his pedigree. We have placed a couple of Street Sense offspring over the years who are excelling in eventing at the Prelim level and above.
