HURRICANE ALPHA, 2017 16.1h chestnut gelding — retained for racing

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
Nicknamed Percy by his owner and his trainer, this lightly raced solid boned young gelding has an impressive uphill build, a great shoulder, and excellent angles all around. And he’s a grandson of Bernardini with an excellent sport horse pedigree. Percy is described by his trainer as a great worker in the morning, but he’s just not putting out the effort in his afternoon races, and he has yet to win in 13 starts. She says he has always been sound, and that he is a friendly horse who likes attention. He can be full of himself in the racetrack environment when he’s in full racing condition, but she says on the farm over the winters he has been very mellow and kind. She reports that on the farm he was cared for and hacked around by a teenager who adored him. During our photo session, Percy stepped on himself in front, and pulled off one shoe cleanly, so for his jog video he is missing a front shoe. But that hardly seemed to bother him; he showed a good push from behind and big movement. We think he is an exciting eventing prospect, but any sport horse discipline should suit him. We listed his half brother Pitterpatter (out of the same dam) earlier this summer, and just a couple of months off the track Pitterpatter is already jumping small courses and showing great jumping ability. Percy is by Alpha, who is a so of Bernardini (by AP Indy). Percy’s dam is by Charismatic (a Storm Bird son) out of a mare by Woodman. Percy checks all the boxes: big, young, sound, good moving, lightly raced gelding with an excellent sport horse pedigree!
