Grand Rapture, 4 year old, chestnut, 16.1 gelding

With his long strided daisy cutter gorgeous trot, and his quiet demeanor, we think this pretty young horse is a fancy show hunter in the making. We ran into his exercise rider on our way to see him, and she raved about how nice he is to ride, very soft, with a smooth and rhythmical stride.  His trainer says that in his races he just likes to get into a steady pace and gallop quietly along near the back — something that we can see being a real asset in cantering around a hunter course in an easy soft way. Even though his feet had just been trimmed and he was barefoot, he showed beautiful movement with a big and flowing stride. He has been on a farm for two months being let down, so he is ready to restart right away. His trainer says he is very sweet, and completely sound. There are some great jumping lines in his pedigree, with With Approval,Copelan, Buckpasser, Hoist the Flag, Ribot, Princequillo. This  is a very high quality prospect.
