Retreive, 2010, 16.1 hand, dark bay colt

Wow, horses don’t come much better looking than this stunning boy! With only 9 starts, this successful colt has won over $100,000, and he was a stakes quality runner in New York. He was retired earlier this year with a knee chip, which has now been removed and he has had his rehab time. His owner was going to use him for breeding, but has since changed his mind and would like to find this guy a perfect home. He has some cosmetic scarring after successful surgical removal of a knee chip, but is reportedly sound. Indeed this is what we saw for his jog video; a big, lofty, balanced trot. The barn manager states that despite being a stud colt, he has great manners and is never mouthy. She reports he loves turnout and is currently turned out all day alone. She sees a lot of potential in him and wishes she could keep him as her own retraining project. He is currently stabled at a farm not far from the track and can be seen there by appointment. He has a great pedigree for sport, from the Relaunch/In Reality sire line, and Gone West and Pleasant Colony close up on his dam’s side. You could compete on him and use him in a sport horse breeding program, or have him gelded and just compete in the discipline of your choice. With his movement we think he would excel at dressage. Don’t pass up this young, athletic horse with loads of potential!

As always, a pre-purchase exam is recommended.
