SNAPPY CAT, 2017 16.1h grey gelding
Located on a farm very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track where he can be seen by appointment.
This handsome guy checks all the boxes: young gelding with good bone and size; sound and clean legged; very good mover; friendly with a great temperament; unlimited sport horse potential; great sport horse pedigree by a sire who has produced several outstanding jumpers — and he is GREY!!! While Snappy Cat may be an exciting sport horse prospect, a racehorse he is not– after 6 starts in which he has yet to hit the board, his owner/trainer realizes that his talents lie in a new career direction. He last raced on June 8, and he is fully eligible for the 2021 and 2022 RRP. His trainer says that whoever buys Snappy Cat will be getting a “very good horse!” He reports that Snappy is very sound, has never had any issues, is good to ride and goes in a plain D snaffle and has never pulled any antics on exercise riders. He also says that Snappy is a kind and friendly horse who loves attention. The trainer reports that Snappy has shown occasional early speed in a couple of his races, but does not sustain it. To try to ascertain why he doesn’t run well, he recently had him scoped, and he scoped completely clean with no airway or flap issues at all. Snappy Cat is by Courageous Cat, who is from Storm Cat, Rahy and Blushing Groom lines. His dam, Classy Maria, is by Maria’s Mon, who is a coveted sport horse sire known for horses with good brains, and great movement. We have placed a few Courageous Cat offspring in recent years, and they have turned out to outstanding jumpers with excellent form. For his jog video, Snappy showed light movement with suspension and good hind end engagement. Snappy Cat is everything that everyone says they want, so we advise acting quickly to snap him up.
