JERUSALEM GATES, 2016 16.2h bay gelding

For everyone who is looking for a big, quiet gelding with a great temperament and an outstanding sport horse pedigree with unlimited potential for any sporting discipline, then check out this handsome son of Point of Entry — who is a champion son of the great Dynaformer — out of a mare by Unbridled’s Song. Yep, you can’t beat this pedigree for a sport horse! These bloodlines rock in the eventing world. Jerusalem Gates sold for $210,000 as a yearling, so the quality and conformation and pedigree are obviously there.  He is lightly raced, with only 15 starts — and 9 top three finishes.  His trainer says he is “100% sound,” but since a race about a year and a half ago when he got bumped hard by another horse at the start, he has shown a reluctance to break quickly from the starting gate. After several recent races in which he hesitated at the start, he was put on the “starter’s list,” meaning he had to get cleared in a morning workout breaking from the gate and then exceeding a certain time, before he could race again. Well, long story short,  he hasn’t been able to meet that standard, so it is time to move him on to a new career which does not involve a racing starting gate. His handler and his trainer described him as a very chill gentleman with a levelheaded brain.  His trainer reported that he gallops in a D-snaffle, and that he has recently been used to pony 2yos newly arrived at the track and has been unflappable in that job. He has good bone, a strong shoulder, a kind eye, ad clean legs.  He hasn’t done anything other than walk the shedrow or on the walking machine for three weeks, so he got a bit up for his jog video, but was very respectful of his handler. We could see moments of very nice movement with good engagement from behind and a good reach from the shoulders. If he moves like this on uneven pavement in obvious need of farrier attention with his overgrown front feet and barefoot behind, then imagine what he will be when properly shod, remuscled and with a top line.  Jerusalem Gates is sired by Point of Entry, who is by Dynaformer out of a Seeking the Gold mare.  His dam, who was a $400,000 yearling,  is by Unbridled’s Song out of a Deputy Minister mare. The sire lines in this horse’s pedigree are the dream list of sport horse sirees!
