Tall, dark and handsome Oliver puts the “ooh” in “ooh la la”! Oliver has the lanky look of a classic old-time thoroughbred. Oliver was quiet and respectful of his handler as she stood him up for his pictures and was very sweet and friendly. He’s described as an in-your-pocket type of guy and, though he isn’t naughty or pushy, he would be best suited with a confident rider. His handler reports that he is sound and his legs were clean and tight this morning. He last raced on 6/26 and showed a nice loft and engagement from behind in his jog video. Oliver has compiled a decent record in his 34 lifetime starts with two wins and seven more in the money finishes. But he bled in his last start, and his connections don’t want to [push him anymore. This has never been an issue for Oliver in workouts and galloping. Race bleeding (EIPH) is almost never an issue — even at upper levels of eventing –once a horse is off the confined and dusty track environment and gets turn out. Oliver brings to the table an enticing sport horse pedigree with Laoban as his sire. Laoban is a son of Uncle Mo out of a Speightstown (Gone West) mare. Uncle Mo and his sons are known as exemplary sport horse sires whose offspring move well, jump well and are brave with great brains. Oliver’s dam is by Johannesburg (Hennessy), a notable sport horse line.
