What an impressive big athletic guy, and he’s got a top notch sport horse pedigree! Cleverly named, his sire is Super Saver, from the coveted Maria’s Mon sire line (rated in an RRP Off-Track thoroughbred magazine article as one of the very best sires for sport horses), and his dam Clever Conversation is by superstar sire Speightstown, who is a son of Gone West, one of the top sires for jumping/sporting disciplines. Hoard exudes upper level potential for sport horse disciplines. He is clean legged (we felt his ankles which were cold and tight) , and has an impressive uphill build with a strong shoulder that just shouts “top eventing or jumping prospect!” His handler who showed him to us, who is also the contact person for the language-challenged owner/trainer, told us that Hoard is very smart and sweet. She has ponied him to the races in the afternoon, and says he is a perfect gentleman. She also reports that when his owner/trainer walked him around their common shedrow, she offered him peppermints from the bucket that her barn always keeps handy, and Hoard quickly learned where to stop and look for his treats, and now he seeks her out and stops to nuzzle. We got to observe first hand how friendly and kind Hoard was with her, as you can see in the photos. Hoard showed a flowing big walk, and a trot with good engagement from the hind end and reach from the shoulders. Hoard was sold for $75,000 as a two year old – check out his listing on pedigree query for gorgeous conformation photos from the yearling and 2 yo sales. He has proven to be a durable and successful race horse, with 7 wins and 7 seconds in 38 starts and nearly $150,000 in earnings. While he is still running well, his owner/trainer likes to be a “one horse stable,” and he prefers mares, and he just claimed a mare, so Hoard is ready to find his new person for a new discipline. Hoard is a volunteer favorite, well worth the price, with what we think is bright sport horse career ahead of him.
Price: $5,000 negotiable
