Pars Hey Zeus was our token gray horse of the day, and what a lovely example he was! He has beautiful dapples and fortunately (for anyone who has ever had to groom a gray horse), he is also reportedly great with baths! His trainer noted that he is a “gentle soul” who needs a kind hand; he seems to be a horse that craves and thrives when he receives positive reinforcement. He was chill while being positioned for his photos, standing like a statue while his handler played with his forelock. Later, we learned that he loves having his face rubbed. His handler did not report any stable vices to us. We observed good feet on a cute horse that has nice balance and correction proportions. The trainer commented that he’s a bit on the lean side right now from where she typically likes her horses, but we learned that he does love to eat, so once off the track with continued good nutrition, he should fill out and muscle up nicely. He was relaxed and cooperative, and displayed cute jog movement. He is a homebred who we were told as a 3 year old, ran well a few times but then petered out. He was reported to us to be sound, just “slower than dirt”. With 13 starts, as he has yet to break his maiden and has only been on the boards twice, we might tend to agree. Pars Hey Zeus is by Encaustic, with Hoist the Flag on the sire side, and out of a Holy Bull mare.
Price: $3,500 neg.
