RUBY ROAD, 2019 16.1h dark bay gelding

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington NY (near Rochester). This stunning homebred had both our dressage volunteer and our show hunter volunteer drooling — we think he is an excellent prospect for many new careers, and up there in the very top tier of horses we have listed. He is very well put together, with a strong shoulder, gret hip angles, and a lovely neckset with a good topline.  He has a kind and intelligent eye, and his breeder/owner/trainer reports that he is easy to handle with a very good temperament. She states that he is very sound, and his only quirk is that he gets aggressive about his food at graining time, so he is not a candidate for 24/7 turnout where he might keep other horses from their fair share. After five lackluster races, it is time to let him find the sporting endeavor that he can excel in.  His trainer reports that she rode him when he was a two year old, and that he showed great endurance — she told us about a nearly two hour trail ride around the farm that didn’t tire him in the least.  Sounds like he might have aptitude for cross-country and hunter paces! He showed off beautiful movement, with loft, reach, and a swinging push from behind. If a horse is this good at using their back and hind end on the track, imagine what it will be like after some retraining for a new discipline.  He also has an excellent sport horse pedigree.  His sire is War Dancer, a son of War Front from the Danzig sire line.  HIs dam, who was stakes placed, is by Tizwonderful who is a son of Tiznow out of a Henessy mare. 

  The owner/breeder/trainer will be picky about who gets her beloved homebred, so be prepared to show your bona fides and references.
