His name is the Native American word for the territory now known as Connecticut (and it is pronounced similar to that state: “kwin -et -i-cut”), so wouldn’t it be appropriate if someone from Connecticut steps up to bring him home! We admired his kind eye, and his owner described him as a very gentle horse with no vices, who is very good to ride, and who would make a great track pony or even a kid’s horse because he is unflappable and tolerant. He says that Quinnehtukqut is sound on old set osselets that he has raced on for a long time. He had just raced a couple of days before his photo session, and the post race poultice had not yet been washed off his legs due to the cold. We also chatted with his exercise rider, who says he is a dream to gallop, that he has always been very sound, and she agreed that he was quiet and steady enough to be suitable for a kid. He showed a nice light toe pointing trot. He is ready to move on because he just isn’t as competitive at the races this year as he has been in the past. He is by Imperialism, a son of Langfuhr from the Danzig line. His dam is Umiak, by Prospector’s Halo. Danzig, Langfuhr, and Halo in his bloodlines demonstrates promise for sporting disciplines.
