Perkasie Boy is a diamond in the rough with huge potential, not to be overlooked if you want a young, sound gelding who is a fabulous lofty mover! When the groom first pulled him out for us, we thought “hmmm, needs groceries, nice bone structure, clean legs, pretty head, kind eye, will be really nice looking when he fills out.” And then we saw him trot…. oh my can he move! Light, lofty suspension and a big stride. His trainer says he is sound and a quiet nice horse. Perkasie Boy is very lightly raced, with only 6 starts, and it is evident that racing is just not his strong suit. But sporting disciplines or dressage should be right up his alley! He is a grandson of Freud out of a mare by Cryptoclearance, who is by Fappiano out of a Hoist the Flag mare. This pedigree sure does suggest jumping ability. For such an outstanding young prospect, Perkasie Boy is very reasonably priced, do don’t hesitate to call.
Price: $1500 negotiable
