We initially listed this handsome young horse in late summer, but then he started racing well, earning steady checks, so his trainer decided to keep racing him. It is now almost the end of the Finger Lakes race meet for this year, so it is finally time to offer Thirty Percent again, and he is completely ready to move on to a good hew home — and this time at a much more bargain price. We think he is 100 percent gorgeous, and full of potential for so many new disciplines! This handsome gelding was such a chill guy for his photo session, soaking up the sun and posing perfectly without a chain over his nose. His trainer says he is a very good boy who does everything right, and is sound. He just isn’t showing enough potential winning ability in the current condition level he has to race in, so they want to find him a new career where he can excel, rather than keeping him over the winter and bringing him back to the races next year. With his balanced correct build, clean legs, and amazing strong sloping shoulder, we can see jumping in his future. He is also a good mover, showing off a light trot with a good toe pointing reach. Show hunter; eventer; fun on hunter paces; dressage? Take your pick — this one can go in any direction. He is by One Nice Cat out of a mare by Smokin Mel (we know there are many fans of Smokin Mel offspring out there). Fappiano, In Reality, Graustark, Ribot, Black Tie Affair, and Regal Classic are just a few of the “sport friendly” sires in his pedigree.
