Admittedly, this handsome gelding was a tad distracted during his photos shoot. He is a fit, athletic youngster who is just coming off three months off to rehab his left front ankle. So, it is more than perfectly understandable that he was a little excited and a bit fresh. He last raced in mid- July. Following careful rehab, he’s been cleared to return to racing but since after ten starts he is yet to break his maiden, his connections would rather move him along to a career where he will have more success than risk re-injury. We especially liked his uphill build, overall angles and balance. He’s handsome and athletic. His handler expressed that he is probably best suited to an experienced OTTB owner. He’s not bad, but we were told that he will test his boundaries. We’d agree with this assessment as he also appears to be very athletic with cat-like grace. He demonstrated gorgeous, athletic movement with loft and suspension even though he also threw a shoe when we initially began filming. We could definitely see him as a potential event horse, burning up a cross country course! And this well-bred youngster has the excellent sport-horse pedigree to support this. His sire Midshipman is by Unbridled’s Song out of a mare from Seattle Slew and Roberto lines. Navy King’s dam comes from the same direct female family as Quiet American and Fappiano, two of the best and most sought after sires in sport horse pedigrees.
