SMOOTH OPERATION, 2016 15.3h bay gelding

This stocky guy would smoothly fit in amongst a bunch of quarter horses.  In addition to his solid build, we admired his kind eye and alert intelligent look, and his quiet demeanor.  His handler attested to his great brain and quiet temperament — she described him as a classy and very well-behaved horse who’s very sound.  Smooth Operation was running well for his trainer up through last year, but this year he seems to have lost his interest in racing, so the trainer decided not to push him to do it anymore.  He has been hanging out and just going on the eurociser and walking machine for a couple of months. Despite this lower level of activity, he was very calm and perfectly behaved for his photo session and jog.  His handler said that is always how he is — quiet and respectful and even tempered.   He showed off a nice overtrack at the walk and a springy trot with good hind end engagement that had us thinking he would make a nice dressage horse or eventer, but he truly could be aimed at any new discipline you want. With his quiet temperament, you can also enjoy nice trail rides! He has 6 wins in 29 starts and $125,000 in earnings. He is by Dr Large, a son of A.P Indy.  His dam has ideal sport horse lines.  She is by You and I, a son of Kris S from the Roberto line. Her dam has Northern Baby close up in her pedigree — who is one of the all-time top sires of steeplechase horses, so good jumpers are in his blood for sure.  His dam line also brings in the Rahy/Blushing Groom/Halo sire line.  This horse has unlimited potential, and is offered for a bargain price.

Price:  $1500
