WOW. This guy reminds us of an old-fashioned chaser with long limbs and lanky build. He is a curious boy who is very interested in his surroundings. Wait until you see the trot- he has a huge, swinging easy stride and we imagine that his canter and gallop will be the same, and with his uphill build he'll be a dream to ride to a fence. He does make a noise when galloping. We did not hear anything when he was trotting. He has been scoped and interested buyers can have a copy of the vet's report. His trainer has decided that he would rather see him go to a non-racing career. Any interested parties can speak to the vet and see the report.
*Note- there are videos from 2 different days. For the videos with the handler in a white hoodie, he was given 1/2 cc of ace to allow potential buyers to really see his movement- he was a little distracted by his surroundings as there was a paving crew nearby and huge dump trucks and front end loaders and smoother. Although he was never naughty, he just wasn't showing himself off very well as he has his neck craned to look at the big diggers (much like a little human boy!). He has the most amazing walk and trot and we think when he is away from the track he will be able to relax and focus better, and this is what you will get.
Trainer states that he has no current injuries or vices, he is good on the ground and in his stall. (He does make a noise when galloping)
