He is HUGE — and he hasn’t finished growing into his big lanky frame. When he is fully grown, filled out, and remuscled for a new discipline, he is going to be quite the impressive equine specimen! Please then give him a new name better suited for his kind personality and impressive stature! After only 5 starts, it is obvious that Punching Bag is just not going to make it as a racehorse, but we sure do see sport horse potential in him. He showed light springy movement, with good push from behind, and this was just three days after his last race. His trainer says he is sound, and we observed clean legs. She says he is good to handle, but he is an energetic big young horse, so he is best suited for an experienced rider who can give him time to grow up. She affectionately calls him “Llama.” He has an excellent pedigree for sporting/jumping disciplines. His sire Teuflesberg, is from the same Johannesburg/Hennessey sire line as new racing superstar Justify, and Teuflesberg’s dam is from the Devil’s Bag/Halo line. Punching Bag’s dam is by Two Punch, who is one of the most coveted sport horse sires. Everyone says they want young, huge, sound geldings with upper level sporting potential, so if you are seriously interested you should call fast on this guy.
