Pitterpatter, 2018 17+ h gr/roan gelding
Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
Pitterpatter, affectionately known around his barn as “Skip,” is a dreamboat unraced young gelding who, according to his trainer, ticks all the boxes except for one: racehorse. He has not shown any prowess for racing and, although young and fairly early into his training, and a very willing attitude,the decision has been made to move him along to a new career. He is described as sweet, playful, wonderful to gallop and handle and an all around good citizen, thanks to a good start with his breeder/owner who has always done right by him. Pitterpatter loves attention, is a good eater, a great mover and is conformationally correct with good bone and big strong feet. He has had throat surgery and intermittently makes noise when startled or exerting himself. His trainer reports that a tongue tie helps when he is in work. Pitterpatter demonstrates a fluid, “swingy” walk and a huge strided lofty trot with great reach from his shoulders — movement that had us seeing upper level dressage potential. He is by Mission Impazible, a son of Unbridled’s Song; we have placed several offspring by this sire who have turned out to have great brains and to take to eventing and jumping quite well. Skip is a blank slate wrapped up in a big, beautiful grey coat with beautiful chestnut roaning, a popular color in our experience! Don’t hesitate to make contact if you are seriously interested in this attractive youngster.
