Flying Shaniko, 2009, 16.1, Dark Bay Gelding–retained by owner

Looking for a horse that’s ready to get back to work in a new discipline today?! “Calvin” has been let down, turned out and barefoot since his last race in September of 2016 and he is ready to restart your way! We observed this guy to stand perfectly still to be groomed.  He is reported to have a wonderful temperament for any discipline.  During our meet and greet at his owner’s farm, we saw a laid back, kind hearted, horse who was easy to handle and respectful of his handler despite his pasture mate calling for his attention. He was happy to hang out with us, beg for treats and scratches as we took his photos. He is by Shaniko out of a Mountain Cat Mare and earned over $119,000 in his time on the race track! Calvin is reported as sound with no vices, excellent stable manners and was a barn favorite to ride and gallop on his time at the track. His trainer reports he stands quietly for the vet and farrier, clipping, bathing, and grooming.  He also cross ties well.  He was turned out with a mare while we were visiting the farm, but his trainer reports he also went out with geldings over the winter-he is quite versatile! We could see this handsome guy going any direction! Calvin has already been let down and ridden a bit at the farm, so he may be an excellent option for someone new to the world of OTTBs intimidated by the thought of buying a horse directly off the track.
