This horse is an elegant gentleman, very quiet, with a friendly laid back and unflappable personality, and he is a beautiful lofty mover. We can see him excelling as a show hunter, or in dressage. Once he is off the track, fills out and develops a top line, he will be quite the looker. He is ready to move on to a new career because after two wins he is finding the next level of competition too tough for him. He is sound and clean legged, and his groom says he is great and easy to handle. He came out for his photos into a backstretch full of early morning activity, with horses and vehicles coming and going, and he just stood politely, without moving a hair, looking around with interest. We saw him again in the early afternoon, when he was pulled out at a time when other horses were going to the track to race — something that often gets other horses keyed up — and again he was a perfect gentleman, standing and jogging ever so quietly on a loose long lead with no chain over his nose, enjoying nuzzling his groom and soaking up the warm sun. He has a big strided flowing walk with a good overstep from behind, and his trot has suspension, lofty rhythm, and reach. He is described as a cribber, and it is controlled with a collar. He is sired by Street Boss, a son of the great Street Cry out of a granddaughter of Damascus. On his dam’s side, there is another cross of Damascus, and Danzig, Valid Appeal, In Reality, and Blushing groom are other coveted jumping/sport sires in his pedigree. He is offered at a rare bargain price — perhaps the bargain of the season for such a nice young great moving sound horse.
