THE GRAND CANAL, 2016 16.2h bay gelding

Are you looking for a beautiful, flashy, big, sport horse prospect? Then The Grand Canal is your horse! With a droolworthy sport horse pedigree,  well balanced conformation, lovely movement, and a quiet temperament, he’s the whole package.  His handler/contact person says she thinks he would make a wonderful show hunter for an amateur working with a trainer. But his pedigree shouts eventing or dressage as well. She reports that he is sound with no vices, quiet and very good to work with.  While he was running well last year, he is showing less interest this year, and the owner does not want to overwinter him to try racing again next year. He joggged very politely for his video, showing a big overstep at the walk and a flowing balanced trot. His sire is Bullet Train, who is a full brother to the great Frankel — both are by Sadler’s Wells out of a Danehill mare.  Bullet Train has quickly become a highly sought after sport horse sire. The Grand Canal’s dam is closely related to Pioneer of the Nile — another coveted sport horse sire.  She is by Empire Maker, who is the sire of Pioneer of the Nile, and her third dam is Pioneer of the Nile’s dam.
