Located on a farm in Victor NY very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track
A beloved homebred, you will be able to get the entire history of this big handsome guy from his connections. His trainer describes Try’n Smart’n Up, who they call Smarty, as “sweet as pie and kind to ride.” They report that he has no vices and is great to work around. He has an impressive shoulder and strong hind end, and is a big handsome horse. He showed very good movement in his jog video, with suspension and good hind end engagement. His movement is nice enough for the hunter ring, and also suggests dressage would be a good career option for him. His trainer reports that he is sound, but she also notes that when he was a yearling he developed impaired vision in one eye, which is now cloudy. She says it has never bothered him at all. While this may well rule out upper level eventing, we know of many horses with one-eyed vision who are very successful in lower level jumping disciplines. Try’n Smart’n Up is sired by Smart BId, who is by Smart Strike out of a Danzig mare. His dam is by Regal Classic, who has sired several horses who have done well in hunters and other jumping disciplines, known for good brains and quiet demeanors. Try’n Smart’n Up has 2 wins in 20 starts, including one win this year. He is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP.
