COMBATING, 2017 17+h bay gelding

For those who are looking for a huge, thick, solid boned TB who has the size and substance of a draft cross, Combatant is your guy. As his handler described him to us — while he just wanted to climb in our volunteer’s pocket — the word “good” kept being repeated:  He’s good in his stall, good to handle, good to ride.  Sweet and friendly, he adored getting the attention of our volunteers.  Because he was racing that afternoon, his handler could only do a short walk and jog for us. She said that Combating is very laid back and loves to sleep in his stall.  She also said he has some old ankle rounding that he has been running on for a while.  He is ready to find a new career less strenuous than racing, since he seems to have lost interest after being with a previous trainer at Penn National that ran him non-stop. Because he is so big and solid boned and has already raced 11 times this year, we think Combatant could benefit from some down time, enjoying turnout and pampering, to let him get over the rigors of racing.  But he sure has kept up his friendly and kind attitude throughout it all!  He has 1 win in 34 starts,  Combating has an outstanding sport horse pedigree. He is sired by Carpe Diem, who is by Giant’s Causeway out of an Unbridled’s Song mare. Combating’s dam is by the great War Front, a son of Danzig. Her broodmare sire is Thunder Gulch — this sire line is known for getting great jumpers.
