Simma’s handler described this handsome, well-built guy as “such a neat horse, sweet as pie.” We admired his clean legs, strong shoulder, kind eye and friendly personality. He showed off a big step with a strong push from behind in his jog video. In his last race in September, Simma took in a lot of dirt kickback, and came up with a throat infection. He was diagnosed with arytenoid chondritis, an inflammation of the arytenoid cartilage. He has been treated with antiobiotics and a throat wash, and it is now nearly all resolved. His handler reports that he has remained happy and bright, and has never made a noise while racing or working. This condition has an excellent prognosis; if it does flare up in the future it can be treated with antibiotics and a throat wash, as it currently is successfully. The trainer will be happy to discuss further with you or your vet. Simma has raced 26 times, with 3 wins and 6 additional in the money finishes. He has 4 races this year, so he is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP. His pedigree is stamina and turf-oriented with many top sport horse lines. His sire is Simmard, a son of Dixieland Band who won long distance turf stakes races. His dam is by Successful Appeal from the Valid Appeal/In Reality line. Deputy Minister, Spectacular Bid, Stage Door Johnny, Nijinsky are other prominent stamina/sport lines in his pedigree.
