Smooth Navigator, 2012 16.2+h bay gelding

Big, young, gorgeous, sound, and a great mover — Smooth Navigator ticks all those boxes! We photographed him the day after he raced, and he showed lofty light movement for his trot video — none of the stiffness that many horses show the day after a race. His trainer also gallops him, and she says he is very good to ride, and very smooth. We estimated his height at a bit over 16.2, almost 16.3, and he looks like he still has some growing to do. His owner/trainer has decided it is time to find him a non-racing career, since he is just not competitive in the next level of racing conditions after breaking his maiden last fall. Racing’s loss should be the sport horse world’s gain — with his balanced build, strong shoulder, solid bone, and great movement, this young horse has unlimited potential for many disciplines. We think he is an excellent eventing or hunter/jumper prospect. He is clean legged (the rear wraps were standard post-race care), said to be very sound, and a good horse to handle and work with. He has an excellent sport horse pedigree. His sire is Suave, who is a son of AP Indy, out of a mare from the Dixieland Band and Pleasant Colony sire lines. His dam is a granddaughter of Danzig. Better call fast if you are interested in Smooth Navigator, because he is they type of horse that everyone says they want!
