ODIN’S STEED, 2015, 17.1h, Grey/Roan Gelding

Located at the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). For everyone looking for the elusive huge, gorgeous grey gelding-here’s your unicorn! Odin is very special to his connections. They report they will be very particular about finding him the perfect home. While his height, good looks, and good movement boasts great promise, his connections believe that he would be best suited for a lower level jumping, or dressage or pleasure home, and that he will best fit for someone with experience due to his size and athleticism. But whoever gets Odin will have to have pockets of never-ending peppermints! They report that he had a small bow in his right forelimb in 2018. He was given a full year off and brought back correctly. He did return to racing, and ran a few times in the Covid-truncated 2020 racing season, and won at the maiden special and allowance level. But when training this spring for a return to racing in 2021, he had some mild filling in the previously bowed tendon. He has remained sound the entire time. Note that on the mornign we photographed him, by the time we got to his barn he had already been “done up” in this barn’s standard practice of wrapping horses that had exercised that morning. Odin is a barn favorite and very loved, so they do not want to risk his soundness in high intensity upper level careers. They would love to see him go to a home with a competitive dressage rider. Due to his size, he would be best suited for a taller rider. They report he can be strong and should go to a confident rider/handler, especially given his size. In his 8 starts, he earned over $59,000 with 2 wins, 2 seconds, and 3 thirds. There’s a lot of heart in this guy! He is by Violence, who is a rising star sire and a son of the great Medaglia D’Oro, from the Sadler’s Wells sire line and out of a Gone West mare. These bloodlines make Violence a prime prospect as a sport horse sire. Odin is out of an Unbridled’s Song mare.
