This sweet and pretty lightly raced four year old is still growing, so he is likely to top out a bit larger than his current 16h. He is currently hanging out on a farm near the Finger Lakes Race Track looking for a great new home. The farm owner says he has a lovely temperament, is friendly and easy to work with, and she thinks this pretty young guy will make a great project for someone to bring out his potential for a new career. He raced only twice last year, and then apparently had a small chip, so was given time off. According to the farm owner, when he came to her a few months ago, he was completely sound, and has remained so while turned out. The horse’s owner is not in a position to keep racing him, so he told the farm owner to find him a good home, and FLF is happy to help! We have not seen him in person ourselves – but we will try to do so in the next few weeks if some lucky person does not snap him up first; the photos were sent to us by the farm owner. He has quite a nice pedigree for sport. His sire is Breeders’ Cup Sprint and Metropolitan Handicap winner Silver Train, who is from the AP Indy sire line, with Cormorant and His Majesty/ Ribot on his dam’s side.. Metallic’s Sky’s dam is by Skywalker, which brings in the Relaunch/In Reality sire line that has produced many good jumpers.
Price: $500 negotiable to good home
