They say great stallions make even greater geldings, and Tale of Mineshaft’s track connections fully believe this will be true about him! It is reported that he can even go on the hot walker with fillies! While he has no stall vices- even being stabled next to a filly- it is said that he can act “like a colt” when he is getting a bath, and even then it is only playful. Tale of Mineshaft had right front ankle surgery, placing a screw, last year. While he has not raced since, his connections report that he has been sound to breeze, gallop, and jog. He was cleared to go back to racing, and his trainer had planned to geld and race him, but Mineshaft’s owner is getting out of racing and would like his boy to find a good home.
Mineshaft is reported to be lovely to ride on the track, going right to work. As he displayed in our attempts at videos, Mineshaft is a bit up right now. He has not trained since April 13th. While we did not get to see much of his jog in person, he did display a lovely canter for our volunteer. And while “high” right now from a lack of work, he did remain respectful of his handler and stood perfectly to be admired for his photoshoot. We’ve included a video his trainer sent previously for at least a little jog.
Tale of Mineshaft is by Mineshaft who is son of the legendary AP Indy and is out of a Tale of the Cat mare. His pedigree screams class and athleticism. His dam is a stakes winner, and his second dam is a multiple graded stakes winner and stakes producer. This boy has the makings of a lovely gelding and his connections want to find the very best home for him!
Price: $1,500 negotiable to the best of homes
