This beautiful big grey is described by his handler as a lover, a totally sweet, friendly, and smart horse. Our volunteer got to experience his sweet friendliness for herself; as she walked up to his stall while taking down information about him, he started nuzzling her and soaked up her face pats and happily took the peppermint she offered. Schettino had raced just a few days before his photo session, and was eased up, but walked off, on a slippery muddy track that he detested. He still seemed stiff behind from this mudbath racing experience, and his handler did not know how to jog a horse, so it was hard to get a good jog video. While Schettino raced well earlier in his 25 start career, he has shown little interest in his most recent starts, so it is time to move him on to a new career. He is by Seeking Beauty, who sired Seeking Fame, the overall show hunter winner at the 2017 RRP — so we think he has good genes to excel as a show hunter. And he certainly has the quiet demeanor and good brain.
