Sometimes the best really is saved for last! We were just asked to list this gorgeous flashy guy on the last week of the Finger Lakes 2023 racing season, since he ran what we hope will be his last race today (Nov. 20) and he is ready to go start what we think will be a great sport horse career. He looks like he could step into the show ring tomorrow, and he moves like the under-saddle winner in the hunter division! Triton was described to us as an in your pocket guy, a quiet and very well-behaved horse who is good to ride and pony on the track. We certainly saw the “in your pocket” aspect of his personality — he just wanted to snuggle with our volunteers. We were told that he is sound, has no vices, and has great feet — which can be hard to find in a chestnut with four white socks. He is ready to move on to a new career because he has one win in 7 starts and isn’t showing enough on the track to make many more wins likely. We admired his well balanced and correct conformation, and overall beautiful looks. We fell in love even more when he moved off on a loose lead, head down and relaxed, for his video. He showed a good overstep at the walk, and a flowing trot with flat kneed reach from the shoulders and good engagement from behind. While he looks to us like a stellar show hunter prospect, he can go do any new career you want to pursue. He is by Jimmy Creed, who is by Distorted Humor out of a mare from the Dixieland Band line. His dam, Nautical N, is by Super Saver, who is by Maria’s Mon. Maria’s Mon has been rated as one of best sport horse sires. Nautical N sold for $575,000 as a yearling, so you know she’s good looking and a great mover.
Price: $3500 negotiable
