Unwavering, 2017 16.2+h bay gelding: retained for racing

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY

Wow — this impressive big young son of super sire Into Mischief cost $300,000 as a two year old! But he has not lived up to his regal pedigree in his racing performance, so now just a year later you can own a son of the great Into Mischief, sire of Derby winner Authentic and numerous other champions, for a tiny fraction of his 2 year old price!  Unwavering has had only 7 starts and has yet to finish in the top 3. Most of his races have been at Woodbine on the synthetic surface; in September his owner sent him to his trainer at Finger Lakes to see if the dirt track and softer competition would produce better results, but it did not. The Assistant trainer who showed this big impressive young horse to us said he thinks he wants to just gallop all day on the grass…. well that sounds like a cross-country eventing machine to us! He informed us that Unwavering is sound, good to handle, sound, and just wants to be a pet.  We admired his big bone and impressive shoulder… and just imagine what a stunning specimen he will be when he finishes growing and is fully mature. He is going to be one big impressive horse! Unwavering was a bit on the muscle for his jog video because he has not done anything since late September when they decided to let him find a new career, but he showed balanced good movement, and even threw in a few tantalizing canter strides rocking back on his hind end. Given his youth and size and power, this horse is recommended for an experienced rider and OTTB retrainer, but we think he has upper level potential!  While his pedigree was meant for racetrack stardom, it is also great for sport/jumping disciplines. Into Mischief is a son of Harlan’s Holiday, and that sire and his other sire sons are proving quite popular amongst eventers for producing forward thinking bold jumpers with great stamina. Unwavering’s dam is a half sister to several top stakes winners including top sire Petionville, another sire admired in sport horse disciplines. His dam is from Deputy Minister and Wavering Monarch/Majestic Light lines… terrific sport horse lines! Will Unwavering live up to his 2 yo price and amazing pedigree in upper level eveting? Who will be the lucky purchaser who bring him up the levels to fulfill his potential?

Price: $5,000
