Our thesis about this beautiful and adorable grey gelding is that one does not need any advanced academic study to find him a very appealing sport horse prospect. He had our volunteers exclaiming “adorable” over and over, as we enjoyed his friendly personality, and his amazing patience as we repeatedly asked his trainer, who speaks limited English, to move him one step forward or one step back to get a good conformation photo. Thesis patiently just went along with whatever he was being asked to do, and happily accepted our attention and pats. He has clean legs, a good top line, and a beautiful expression. For his video he displayed a good swinging walk, and a cute even trot with good push from behind and good reach in front. We were told that he is sound. He secured his 6th career victory in late July, but since then, having to face tougher conditions, he has not shown the same level of competitiveness, so the owner, who is the contact person, told us that he thinks it is time to find him a new career. As we were taking his photos, the wife of his jockey, who works on the backside, came over to give us more information. She said that his jockey likes him a lot, but noted that he can get a bit body sore after a race. She also confirmed that he is a sweet horse, but can sometimes make grumpy faces, but is “all bark and no bite.” Thesis has 41 starts, with 6 wins, 8 seconds, and 8 thirds, and has earned over $185,000. He’s obviously got heart and try with that record, and well deserves to move on to a new life where he can be pampered. Based on his pedigree, he has excellent sport horse potential. He is by Paddy O’Prado, who is by El Prado from Sadler’s Wells and Kris S./Roberto lines. Thesis’s dam is by Notebook, who is from Raja Baba/Bold Ruler and Tom Rolfe/Ribot lines, and throughout his stud career was a stallion much favored in sport horse disciplines. On his dam side Thesis also comes from Damascus and Roberto lines. Overall he has a pedigree oriented to long distance turf racing, which bodes well for eventing, and makes it all the more remarkable that Thesis has had the heart and versatility to succeed in dirt racing.
