This cute and stocky young guy has shown no aptitude for racing — in 5 starts he has enjoyed the view from the back of the pack. But he has unlimited potential for any new career. His trainer says that he is mentally and physically immature — she says that he wants to try to take in everything but has not yet learned to focus. The jolly ball — yes! Oh, but that toy — yes! Oh, and that nice person over there– yes! She says he is very sweet and sound and there is not a mean bone in his body, but he needs a patient person who can let him physically and mentally mature — and then that lucky person is going to have a great horse. His sire is Majestic City, a son of City Zip. One of our volunteers has a Majestic City offspring who also came off the track as a 3yo with a similar “rear view” record in 5 starts, also physically and mentally immature, with a similar lack of focus; a year later he has proven to be the sweetest and most willing horse with a lot of jumping talent and good movement. He has been brought along in a patient professional program that has given him time off during his growth spurts ( he grew from 15.3 to 16.1+ in 9 months!), and he has blossomed into an exciting show hunter prospect who shows exponential improvement and focus from each new experience. Other people that we know with Majestic City offspring report similar experiences — they need time to grow physically and mentally, they are naturally inclined to be very sweet and willing and laid back, and they just get better and better from each training session. So Pepper King’s ideal new home is with a patient experienced person who will give him time to mature, knowing of the great potential that is worth bringing along the right way. And if brought along properly in this situation, he is likely to wind up being a great all-around or kid’s horse. With Pepper King’s stocky smaller build, he looks like a horse with great potential for barrels… but other Majestic City offspring are also showing great jumping talent. Pepper King’s dam is from Blushing Groom and Fappiano lines, which are coveted in the sport horse world.
