This beautiful Seattle Slew grandson is indeed a registered pure black! He is very striking looking, with a balanced build, kind eye, and lovely light movement with a toe pointing reach to his trot. Excellent hunter/jumper or dressage prospect. His trainer says he is very good to handle, and to ride, and she should know since he gallops him. He says he is sound, but his ankles get slightly puffy for a day or two after a race and then he is fine. Since he has not shown much racing ability, and has yet to win, it sounds like a new career is just what he wants. He is not at all studdish, and should transition quickly to life as a gelding. He was very level headed and posed perfectly for his photos and jogged quietly even though horses on the walking machine next to him were bucking and twirling around. He does have a sunken cheek on the left side of his face, but it hardly mars his beauty or potential; it was an injury incurred as a foal. This boy is much loved and a very good home is essential.

As always, a pre-purchase veterinary exam is recommended.
