RINGGOOD, 2017 16.2+h bay gelding

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY

Big, kind, friendly, elegant, a great mover, sound, and with an adorable spotted blaze on his face — Ringgood is all that and more! When his connections first told us about him, they said he was one of the best upper level sport horse prospects that they had ever had, and that meant a lot, since over the years we have helped them place several horses into intermediate and upper level eventing careers. Ringgood is very special to his trainer, since Ringgood was his first racehorse when he decided to go out on his own, and he said that Ringo, as they call him, has been a steady, sound, friendly, and always hard trying horse for him.  His young son is especially fond of Ringo, and it was very touching as we took his listing to see the father explain to the heart-broken boy that it would be better for their beloved Ringo to let him find a new career that he loved and would be successful at. We were told that Ringo is very sound, has good feet, no vices, is good to handle, and while a forward ride, he is very respectful of his rider. While racing regularly, he could get stiff for a few days after a race, but warmed up out of it quickly.  When we saw him and took his video, he showed no stiffness at all, and moved very freely from his shoulders with good hind end engagement — he’s a very good mover for sure! While Ringo had good racing success in prior years, this year, he has only a single third place finish in 11 starts, so his connections know it is time to let him move on from racing into a new career.  Ringgood is by Teuflesberg, who is from Hennessy, Devil’s Bag and Halo lines. HIs dam is by Mizen Mast, who is from the Cozzene/Caro sire line.  Those who follow TB lines that make good sport horses will truly appreciate this guy’s pedigree.
