This beautiful big horse impressed us with his classy and flashy good looks. He showed good class in racing, too; until 2015 he was consistently hitting the board in allowance company. He is described as intelligent, good to handle, a really nice horse. His regular racing schedule has caught up with him recently, and after his last couple of races his knee was a bit puffy, so it is time to reward him with a new career. Because he is done racing, his trainer wants to find him a home as soon as possible, and the bargain price reflects that. We first photographed him in October 2015, 6 days after a race, and his knee felt cold with no filling at all, and he trotted soundly for his video showing very good movement with a fluid stride and a flat kneed reach. We saw him again in September 2016, and took a new video, and although he was fresh from having had a few weeks off, he again trotted soundly and showed very nice suspension. We can see U Whippersnapper as an elegant show hunter or dressage horse, but he surely will be stunning in other arenas too.
