This very well bred, lightly raced big young guy hasn’t lived up to his stellar pedigree on the racetrack, so his trainer wants to find him a new career where he can excel. Tommy ran well on the synthetic track at Woodbine as a two year old, and his current connections claimed him last winter in Florida. But Tommy has shown a dislike for the hard dirt surface at Finger Lakes. Tommy sustained an injury to his right hind ankle earlier in his life, and while it is now a larger piece of racing jewelry, we were told that it causes him no problems, and he has raced sound on it and he jogged fine for us. Tommy was friendly, quiet and well behaved for his photo session in the rain, and he was so mellow he did not even want to trot. But when he did trot for his video, he showed some nice balance with hints of suspension. Tommy is likely to grow some more, and once he is gelded we think he will make a great horse for many disciplines. He was certainly bred to be the real deal: a son of leading sire Sky Mesa, a son of Pulpit, grandson of AP Indy and out of a mare by Dixie Union, from the Dixieland Bank sire line, who sold for $200,000 as a yearling.
