WOW– this drop dead gorgeous young colt with a great temperament, lovely movement, and the ideal sport horse pedigree just shouts quality and potential for a sport horse career — he’s fancy enough for the show hunter ring, and has the uphill build and pedigree for eventing and jumping or dressage. His trainer says he is very kind and not the slightest bit studdish, so you could leave him intact and use him for sport horse breeding while also competing him. But wow what a great gelding he will be! He has a beautiful head and kind eye, uphill build with a good topline. He is clean legged and reported to be sound. He showed off lovely light and even movement for his jog video. His trainer reports that the owner is overextended and has to reduce their number of horses. Principino has yet to win, but in his 9 races he has two seconds and 4 thirds. He last raced in October 2021, so he is fully eligible for the 2023 RRP. The current trainer, who takes great are with their horses and has been the source for some of our most coveted and successful-in-new-career listings, reports that Principino came to her a couple of months ago in less than ideal condition, barefoot and underweight. Under her great care he is filling out and has returned to health and happiness — but he still has some filling out to do. (To see how stunning he looks when fully fleshed out and shiny, see the photo that accompanies his pedigree query entry — the pedigree query entry is linked below.) Principino is sired by Cairo Prince, who is by Pioneer of the Nile and out of a Holy Bull mare. Cairo Prince, Pioneer of the Nile, and Holy Bull have well deserved reputations for producing excellent sport horses with great temperaments, willing attitudes, excellent movement and jumping ability. Principino’s dam is by the recently deceased Include, a son of Broad Brush — both coveted sport horse sires. A rarity for modern US thoroughbred pedigrees, he has no Storm Cat or Mr. Prospector in the first 5 generations of his pedigree. But what you do see in those five generations are stout sport horse lines such as Unbridled, Fappiano, Holy Bull, Hail to Reason, Turn-To, and Damascus.
