Hampden Fiveone, 2011 chestnut 16.1h gelding: new price!

This flashy and friendly grandson of the great Triple Crown winner Affirmed is described by his groom and the assistant trainer as an all around good guy — great to work with, well mannered to handle, very nice and respectful  to ride, friendly and people oriented, very good on the farm in turn out with other horses.  He has knee chips, and has raced well with them for a while — he has had 50% on the board finishes in 29 starts.  But recently, they have caught up with him, and the high speed of racing and race training is no longer recommended for him.  On the day we photographed him, he had been handwalking for ten days since his last workout on April 30, so he was feeling good. But he jogged politely, and showed nice movement.  While jumping careers would not be recommended for him (unless the knee chips could be surgically removed), many new careers involving flat work would be suitable — pleasure, trails, etc.  The assistant trainer says that he is kind and sensible enough to be suitable for a child or young rider under the supervision of a trainer.  Please give the handsome and loving young horse a chance at a good new career and post racing life in a loving home.
