For everyone looking for that big, sound, great moving gelding with a great brain and upper level potential — here he is! He is a volunteer favorite as well as a barn favorite. “Classy” is the word that the trainer and his staff used to describe Forever Utopia, and we agree! He is very handsome, with an intelligent, alert, kind expression, clean legs, a solid boned, balanced and uphill build with a strong shoulder. His trainer says he is an all around good citizen, who happily does his job and is great to work with, is sound and always tries hard. He has been a very good race horse, stakes placed with almost $300,000 in earnings, but he is less competitive this year so it is time to start looking for a new career where he can continue to excel. He impressed us a very good mover, with a big stride and good reach. We can see him impressing in the dressage phase and then eating up a cross country course! He is also handsome enough and a good enough mover to excel in the hunter ring, and he sure looks like jumpers would be no problem for him. He is by Utopia, a son of Forty Niner, out of a mare by Menifee.
Price: $3,000, slightly negotiable to an outstanding approved home
