Classy and striking looking, with a well balanced build and a nice mover, this handsome grey has potential for many new career directions. His trainer says he needs the right person – an experienced horse person who will bond with him and appreciate his forward, strong work ethic. He says the horse can be a bit grumpy, but warms up to a regular kind handler. We observed a friendly and very well behaved horse, who loved the peppermint treats his trainer gave him. He also showed very nice balanced movement. His trainer says he came back after a recent workout with a slight filling in a knee. They x-rayed his legs, and both knees and ankles came back clean, but with signs of usual racing wear. But they feel he is too nice of a horse (he was Saratoga graded stakes placed at 2) to risk injury, so they want to retire him and find him a great new home where he can excel in a new career.
