When a gorgeous gray comes out of the barn and his handler describes him as “a very cool horse,” “a super nice guy,” you should all pay attention! Preston Court is a very well bred, young and still growing gelding who has good bone, a good strong shoulder, and good hip angles. He is still a bit butt high, which suggests he has more growing to do. We think when he finishes growing and fills out and develops his top line he is going to be stunning. He is described as sound, and we observed clean legs. He has 13 starts, 2 wins and 4 additional top 3 finishes, so he has earned his keep as a race horse. But he is with a trainer who believes in letting them move on to new careers once they have gone through their first couple of level of race conditions and are not likely to set the racing world on fire, but have unlimited potential for new sport horse careers. Preston Court wowed us with his huge overstep at the walk and his very fluid trot — jogging very politely on a loose lead in the midst of a cold wind that had others riled up. He was very friendly and quiet and seemed ot enjoy our attention. Preston Court is sired by Mission Impazzible, a son of Unbridled’s Song out of a Hold Your Peace (Prince John lines) mare. Mission Impazzible has quickly established himself as a sire of good sport horses who have great brains, even temperaments, willing attitudes, and excellent jumping ability. Preston Court’s dam was a $300,000 yearling, and she is by Elusive Quality out of a graded stakes winning Danzig granddaughter.
