Located at a farm very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). This very well bred, lightly raced big young guy hasn’t lived up to his stellar pedigree on the racetrack, so his trainer wants to find him a new career where he can excel. Tommy ran well on the synthetic track at Woodbine as a two year old, and his current connections claimed him in Florida. But Tommy has shown a dislike for the hard dirt surface at Finger Lakes. He was retired from racing previously, but his trainers decided to geld him and give it another go. Unfortunately (for them), Tommy is still not showing an interest in racing here. Racing’s loss is your gain! Tommy sustained an injury to his right hind ankle earlier in his life, and while it is now a piece of racing jewelry, we were told that it causes him no problems, and he has been racing and training sound on it and he jogged fine for us. Tommy was friendly, quiet and well behaved for his photo session in the rain, and he was so mellow he did not even want to trot. But when he did trot for his video, he showed some nice balance with hints of suspension. Tommy is likely to grow some more, and once he is gelded we think he will make a great horse for many disciplines. He was certainly bred to be the real deal: a son of leading sire Sky Mesa, a son of Pulpit, grandson of AP Indy and out of a mare by Dixie Union, from the Dixieland Bank sire line, who sold for $200,000 as a yearling. His trainer states he is excellent to have in the barn and has no vices. This is a bargain price for such a handsome, kind, sound young gelding with good size!
