Located at a farm in Victor NY, near the Finger Lakes Race Track.
He is indeed five stars in the looks department! This stunning huge gelding has lovely balanced conformation and solid bone, and a strong sloping shoulder. His trainer reports that he is sound, good to handle and ride, and has no vices. His racing record shows his class: he has 32 starts, with 4 wins, 3 seconds, 3 thirds, and over $200,000 in earnings. But he is slowing down this year, with fewer racing conditions for which he is eligible, and no wins in 6 starts, although he has run second and third. So his owner/trainer thinks it is a good time to move him on to a sport horse career. He is a nice light and balanced mover with hints of suspension in his jog video. We photographed him at his owner’s farm right after he was brought over there from the track, and while he was extremely interested in the turned out horses running and whinnying to greet him, he responded to his trainer and stood politely for his photographs. The trainer reports that at some point over two years ago, before they claimed him, he had tie back surgery, but it has not affected his racing, and exercise riders report that he makes no noise while galloping. He has an excellent pedigree for sport disciplines. His sire Posse is from the Deputy Minister line, out of a mare from Rahy/Blushing Groom and Roberto lines; Posse has sired many horses who have excelled in jumping and eventing disciplines. His dam Skye Castles is by Sky Classic out of a mare from Polish Navy/Danzig, and Seattle Slew lines. A big gorgeous good moving gelding like Five Star Bunt is what everyone says they want, so we urge you to act fast if you are seriously interested.
Price: $3500 negotiable
