SEA URCHIN, 2019 16.3h chestnut gelding with chrome

Located on owner’s farm in Shortsville NY near the Finger Lakes Race Track

This big, flashy, beloved homebred son of Will Take Charge is affectionately known to his owner/breeder as “Willy.” He is a half-brother to Sea Captain, who was last autumn’s most coveted FLF listing. The trainers and grooms for both horses say that Willy is even nicer than his exceptional brother… both in temperament, rideability, handling, and general loveability.   Sea Urchin has had only 7 starts, without ever finishing better than 4th, so his owner/breeder has reluctantly concluded that racing is not his aptitude, but she realizes that he has unlimited potential for many new careers. He was recently brought to his owner’s farm and had his shoes pulled. He has quickly settled into the laid back farm life, enjoying his turn out — he was even reluctant to trot for his jog video, and was completely unfazed by trotting barefoot on pavement, with only a rope lead, in between a pasture with weanlings and one with mares all looking on with curiosity.  We talked with people who groomed Willy on the track last year, this year, and on the farm, and all agreed that he is one of the sweetest, kindest, great to handle and work with horses — they all adore him!  Sea Urchin is sound and clean legged and has no vices.  He showed very good movement for his jog video — as we said, barefoot on pavement, just after having his shoes pulled.  With his looks and laid-back attitude and quiet flowing movement he screams “fancy show hunter prospect”  o us… perhaps because we know of some Will Take Charge offspring who are excelling in that discipline. But eventers and dressage riders also love Will Take Charge offspring — so Willy can go in ay new career direction. His sire Will Take Charge is by Unbridled’s Song  and out of the great broodmare Take Charge Lady, who is from Deputy Minister and Fappiano lines.  Sea Urchin’s dam Tapitbythesea is by the great Tapit, from AP Indy lines, and out of a mare from Mt. Livermore (Blushing Groom/Cox’s Ridge) and Unbridled and Roberto lines. These are exceptional sport horse bloodlines.
