RESILIENT KINDAGUY, 2018 16.2h bay gelding
Located on a farm in Shortsville NY close to the Finger Lakes Race Track
This big young gelding wowed our volunteers with his sport horse potential — and he is offered at a bargain price for what everyone says they want: young, big, lightly raced, sound, good moving gelding. He has raced three times — all this year — without success, so his trainer realizes his potential lies in a discipline other than racing. He is described by his trainer as sound, good to handle, with no vices. The farm owner, where he has been for over a week, reports that he has been easy to groom and handle, polite going to and from turn out, and that he has been happy in turn out either alone or with another gelding. He posed and jogged politely and was very friendly, not bothered in the slightest by the goats romping in a nearby pen, or by the farm owner’s visiting grandchildren playing nearby. He has an uphill build with good bone and a strong shoulder — just what sporting disciplines look for. He has a couple of scabs on his hind ankles from hitting himself in a recent race — but hind boots and farrier work can take care of this. He tracked straight for his jog video, and showed very good movement with suspension and hind end engagement, even on the uneven gravelly ground. He has an excellent sport horse pedigree. His sire is Stormy Atlantic, a turf oriented sire who is known for good brained athletic sport horses. His dam, Married at Sea, is by Chapel Royal, who is from the Montbrook/Buckpasser sire line. When this young guy finishes growing and fills out he is going to be quite impressive.
