Located at private farm in Irondequoit, NY (just north of Rochester, about 30 minutes from the Finger lakes Race Track).
His gorgeous, shiny, filled out good looks are a testament to how TBs thrive once off the track! We first listed Toccet’s Image 3 years ago while he was still racing, but then his owner/trainer decided to hang on to him because his services were needed at his farm as a steadying influence in turn out for youngsters. But those youngsters have now grown up and are in race training, and as the owner/trainer says, Toccet’s Image is far too nice of a horse to not have a job. He says he loves to work, and really loves having a job. He says Toccet’s Image is “bombproof” and could do anything. He is smart, sound, and has become a loved member of the family — but they are willing to let him go to the perfect new home that will give him a job and bring out his aptitude for any new discipline. Toccet’s image has the good mind, pedigree, build, and nice movement for sporting disciplines, but he could also enjoy trail riding and being a pampered pleasure horse. He has been barefoot at the farm, and his owner/trainer says he has good feet. For his video he jogged barefoot on hard pavement, showing off very good movement with lightness, balance, and good engagement from behind. He is good to handle, good to work with, good in turn out with other horses, good to load and ship — just an all around good horse! He is ready to start retraining for a new career! Do not let his age deter you — already let down war horses like him who are still sound and eager to work are true gems, who will reward you for many years. Toccet’s image is by Toccet, who is a son of Awesome Again out of a Cozzene mare. Caro, Blushing Groom, and Deputy Minister are prominent sire names in his pedigree who much loved in the sporting world. Toccet’s Image’s dam is by Smart Strike out of an Affirmed mare.
A very good home is essential, an references will be required.
