Take the El Train, 2010 16.3h Dark Bay colt

Tall Dark and Handsome!!! This young big guy was genuinely pleasant to be around when we took his photos and his movement was just as impressive! His trainer reports that he had a knee chip removed over a year ago and says he has returned to racing sound, even winning once. However, the risk of continuing to push the limits on the repaired knee outweigh this guy’s potential on the racetrack. The vet reports that he will be sound for any discipline, but keeping him racing fit will continue to stress the joint. His exercise rider claims that he is great to ride and will even come down to the walk from the gallop if not reminded to keep going– he looks like a race horse but he thinks like a pleasure horse. With this bright young guy’s athleticism and heart, he is sure to be successful as a sport horse or meandering a trail to your heart’s content. While he is not gelded, this handsome horse is not studdish and his connections report that he is always pleasant to handle, respectful and has no vices.
