Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY).
We recognized this gorgeous guy and were impressed by how he has matured from the cute colt that we saw and listed very late last year. He definitely knew how to strike a pose and seemed to enjoy being the focus of attention. This youngster has a pretty and slightly dished face, a long sloping shoulder and beautiful arched neck. He has a compact build with good bone, a wide chest and muscular hind quarters. We were amazed how well behaved he was, and saw no signs of stud-like behavior, as he was a perfect gentleman even with lots of activity going on around him. We were told that he is just as straight-forward and easy to ride on the track. In his video, he had a lovely, relaxed walk and carried himself in a way that gave you the impression that he owned the place. Imagine how that confidence will call attention to you in the show ring! During his jog, we detected cute movement with loft and suspension. Last year, we had reported that after his last race he was slightly sore in his left knee. This year, after continued lackluster performance as a racehorse and only twos wins in 9 starts, his owner doesn’t want to push him further, and would rather move him to a less strenuous career. This colt, who sold as a $40,000 yearling, is by Mission Impazible, a sire noted for producing horses with good brains and temperaments and out of a Cuvee mare. We should also remind you that FLF offers a gelding incentive program because, as one of our volunteers once said, “this gorgeous colt will make an even gorgeous gelding!” You can have the procedure and post-op recovery performed at the track, at lower cost to you and with no hassles. Grays are always popular listings, and this is a one is a well put together boy. With his good looks, solid build, and gentlemanly manners, he’s worth a look and a little investment in R&R for a horse that is sure to stand out in the show ring.
