Thie big good looking young bay guy is affectionately known as “Curtis,” and he completely stole the hearts of our volunteers. On a day when we saw many great looking and great moving horses, Curtis won the coveted title of “volunteer favorite.” Curtis has excellent solid bodied conformation, with an adorable face, strong shoulder and hind end, good neck set and top line. His trainer reports that he is sound; his left hind ankle is slightly enlarged, but it has been x-rayed clean with no calcification or any limitations; the trainer says it may be congenital or perhaps from something when he was a baby. Curtis has 8 races, 6 this year, and he has only a single third place finish to show for his efforts. His trainer reports that during the speed and stress of racing jockeys retport that he gets short of breath. He was scoped, and has a paralyzed flap. But the trainer also gallops him, and reports that he can gallop long distances with no breathing or endurance issues at all, and he never makes a noise. So they are confident that he will have no limitations for any sport horse discipline — and they also say Curtis is great to ride. For his video Curtis displayed lanky big strided movement. HIs trainer reports that he is a very kind horse who is easy to handle and has no vices, and is not the slightest bit studdish. Sounds like Curtis will be a dreamboat gelding! His pedigree is replete with sires well known for producing great sport horses with good brains. He is by Songandaprayer, a son of Unbridled’s Song. Curtis’ dam is by Currency Swap, whose sire High Cotton is known for producing the kindest and willing jumpers, eventers, and show hunters. Dixie Union, Smoke Glacken, Two Punch, Broad Brush, Halo, Fappiano, and Danzig are other top sport horse sires in his pedigree.
