Smart Thinking. 2010 16.1 hand, bay gelding: sold for racing

Located at Fingerlakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (close to Rochester, NY). This good-looking boy is a very successful war horse! With 72 starts, he’s earned over $206,000 with an impressive 18-17-9 record. Equibase also lists a Top 100 achievement; in 2014, he ranked 66th in number of wins. His assistant trainer describes him as, “not bad, just on the high side” and tells us he loves to work. Like many horses, she says he is a different horse with turnout; last winter at her farm her “14-year old daughter took him to/ from the field”. She told us he turns out well with others, tends to be low man on the totem pole, and is a very easy keeper. We noted his solid and compact body with well-muscled forearms and hindquarters. He jogged with cute, springy movement. We were told that as a 2-year old, he had surgery to remove knee chips and he has since raced (very successfully) on them for many years. He is by Defer, and out of a Whiskey Wisdom mare. Looking for a 2020 RRP Makeover horse in western disciplines or a taller barrel prospect? This boy could be a smart choice!

Price: $1,000 neg.
