We admired this very handsome dappled beauty for his lofty athletic movement, great shoulder, and enticing aptitude for upper level sporting disciplines. His owner says that he “is as sound as they come,” and that jockeys who have ridden him in races report that he is “the soundest horse they ride at Finger Lakes.” His trainer reports that Lover’s Leap is a gentle giant and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. Lover’s Leap is reported to love turnout at the farm with other horses. Lover’s Leap has been a successful racehorse, with 59 starts, 8 wins, 18 additional top three finishes and over $162,000 in earnings. But he has been less successful on the track this year, so his owner wants to move him on to a new career where we think that Lover’s Leap’s athleticism and movement will make him a star. We think he has top level potential in eventing, or the H/J ring. Lover’s Leap is by Bridgetown, who is a son of the great sire Speightstown, a son of Gone West. His dam is from the Kris S./Roberto sire line. This gorgeous, sound, clean legged, and good moving young gelding is an excellent upper level prospect.
