FIELD PATROL, 2016 16.2h chestnut gelding

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
If you are into TB pedigree royalty, they don’t come with better breeding than this big laid back guy! His sire is champion Ghostzapper (by Awesome Again), and his dam is by Street Cry out of Salute, a stakes winning mare who has produced numerous stakes winners including millionaire turf star Mr. Speaker, as well as a champion steeplechaser! And his third dam is the immortal Personal Ensign, widely acclaimed as one of the best racehorses of all time. Field Patrol is lightly raced, with only 10 starts. Earlier in his racing career he had some top placings running long on the turf at top tracks, but then he decided he didn’t like the starting gate, and he hesitated at the start until finally he refused to leave the gate. His current owner/trainer says he trains great in the morning, and is nice to ride. She says he is very smart, and has a quiet laid back personality. She also reports that he is sound, good to handle, and has no vices. She stopped his training over a month ago, so now he lacks a top line and is furry with his winter coat. But just imagine what he can look like once he’s spiffed up and through retraining for a new discipline develops a good top line — he’s got a great solid bone structure, strong hind end, good shoulder, and well balanced conformation. He was very quiet for his video, and showed a nice walk and a trot with lovely suspension and cadence. We also watched some of his race videos, and observed a flowing and smooth big strided gallop with good reach from the shoulders without any high knee action. We think he has excellent sport horse potential, and might enjoy the quiet cantering of the hunter ring, or the dressage arena where his suspension can shine. He is closely related to a top steeplechaser, so jumping ability is in his blood. While he may currently look like a bit of a diamond in the rough, we think the class in his bloodlines will come to the fore, and he may turn out to be one of the bargains of the year! He raced this year, so he is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP.
