Hello tall, dark and handsome! We’re told that this big boy is good in his stall and doesn’t weave or crib but can sometimes (like many sensitive, thin-skinned Thoroughbreds) be a little ticklish while being groomed. We were told that his exercise riders find him to be “fairly easy to ride”.
He is currently racing fit and in his photos, he appears somewhat leaner from what we remembered him being in person. The good news is that he was also reported to be a very “good eater” so we expect that once he is off the track, in a quieter setting, and maybe after following a standard ulcer protocol, he should easily put on a few extra pounds and fill out nicely. We liked the slope of his shoulder and long elegant neck.
Early-on in training with his current connections, his feet were a tad sensitive so he wore glue-on shoes, but there is no reason that he can’t now wear regular shoes. And, in his video, we noted that he was missing his LH shoe. In-person, we observed a swingy, springy step in his trot- almost as if he had a little of a swagger and knows what a handsome dude he is!
True Palace is by Palace Malice with Curlin and Roberto blood on his sire’s side and from a Warfront mare with Danzig lines on his dam’s side.
