SHARPOON, 2019, 15.3 h bay gelding

Located at a farm in Newark NY

Update January 2024: Sharpoon is at a farm in Newark NY, not far from the Finger Lakes Race Track, for the winter. He is being restarted under saddle, and is proving to be very sweet, very quiet, and a quick learner. For his first ride, on a cold day when he hadn’t done anything for a month, he stood quietly at the mounting block, and walked and trotted around quietly, showing an unflappable demeanor. The person who is restarting him says he is an absolute pleasure to ride.

Here is our write up from the track in the fall of 2023:

We were amused when this cute boy was described by his trainer as a being a complete “slouch” on the track — he told us that Sharpoon is sweet and sound, but slow, slow, SLOW.  While he may not be earning his keep as a racehorse, all of the volunteers agreed that for us, “sweet, sound, and slow” hits the trifecta every time in a new career! The trainer says that Sharpoon is “nice to work with”, without any vices,  and that he is sound without any injuries, but that he is just WAY too slow to be a racehorse. Which is exactly what most of us are looking for- a nice young quiet lightly raced gelding whose connections tell us has no limitations for his future. And he’s fully eligible for the 2024 RRP! He is solidly put together, with a nice long, sloping shoulder and a compact build. He was relaxed and perfectly agreeable posing quietly for us on a rainy, chilly and blustery day. He has a cute face with a unique, almost heart-shaped star. He perked up a little for his video but was polite for his handler. Although he was missing his RH shoe which is less than ideal for filming, it didn’t significantly seem to affect his movement jogging on the hard pavement. We observed a nice, forward walk and an easy jog displaying cute, smooth movement. With his distinct shade of light blood-bay, Sharpoon will help you stand out in any show ring. We can imagine him having a successful second career in a variety of different fields. Sharpoon is by Gormley (Malibu Moon/ A.P. Indy line),  and his dam Ganesha is by Sharp Humor , a son of Distorted Humor.  His dam also has the Private Terms/Private Account sire line in her female family — one of the most sought after sport horse sire lines.
