Hey Star Trek fans, this cleverly named son of the mare Starship Cruiser should be right in your galaxy. We were drawn in by Trek’s beautiful head, kind eye, and very friendly personality. His solid bodied good looks, good movement, and excellent pedigree add to the attractive package. Trek is lightly raced, with only 4 starts. He was showing good racing talent with close up placings at the maiden special weight level, but last year in his fourth start, another horse ran up into his hind legs and cut his hind tendon. He went to his owner/trainer’s farm where she properly and patiently rehabbed him, and he is now fully healed and cleared for any discipline. All you can see is a slight bump on the tendon. Trek just returned to the track, but his trainer realizes she does not have time to get him racing fit again before the end of this year’s Finger Lakes meet, and Finger Lakes does not permit 6 year olds who have not won before to race there. So Trek is ready to move on to a new career. The trainer’s son, who is an exercise rider, reported that he recently tacked Trek up, took him for a ride on the track, and that Trek was perfectly behaved, “very chill, “bowed his head, and calmly strided out and like he had never had any time off. Now that’s a sensible horse who wants a job! Trek was a $75,000 yearling. He is by champion sire Awesome Again, and his stakes placed dam Starship Cruiser is by Golden Missile, a son of AP Indy, and out of a stakes winning Fappiano mare. The Deputy Minister, Blushing Groom, AP Indy, and Fappiano lines in his pedigree bode well for his sport horse potential.
An excellent home is essential, and this owner/trainer appreciates being able to follow her horses and likes to get frequent updates on their post-track life.
Price: $3,000 negotiable
