Knockout, 2008, 16+ h bay ridgling

Located at a farm very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). This tank of a horse is aptly named! Wow, what a looker this guy is. His breeding is exceptional and his race record reflects a highly respectable number of in-the-money finishes out of 39 starts. He is reported to be a classy guy to work with who never puts a foot wrong. We had the benefit of getting the input of his regular rider who said that he is a professional, knows his job, puts his head down and is all business on the track, although he is a powerful boy and is strong in the racetrack environment. We were delighted to see beautiful movement, with a big flowing stride, suspension, cadence, and loft, maintaining a natural frame, that had our assembled group of volunteers exclaiming with oohs and ahhs! We can envision him excelling as a dressage mount, or in the hunter ring or in eventing. He is a good prospect for a large or tall rider with his solid bone and substantial build. He cost $300,000 as a two year old, so we’re not the only ones who think he is indeed a knockout in the looks department. He is by champion sire Smart Strike, out of a mare by Red Ransom, a son of Roberto and grandson of Damascus. These are great sport/jumping lines. Here’s your chance to own a $300,000 horse at a tiny fraction of that! He is listed at a bargain price which is negotiable to a good home. Put those savings towards his gelding procedure and you will have a stunning, athletic horse that will turn heads wherever you take him. His trainer reports he has no vices.
Price: $800neg
