Sure, you might have to burn through some purple shampoo to get there, but when a glistening grey event horse come striding up the centerline? Nothing classier.
Here are three grey OTTBs that have popped up on CANTER of late we’d love to “scrub” the competition with!
SW Morning Glory (Unbridled Energy – S W Betster, by Corridor Key): 2013 16.1-hand Pennsylvania-bred mare
Leggy! With a refined build, this Unbridled Song granddaughter shows the athleticism expected with that line. Very lightly raced, this girl is retiring with only six starts and no known issues or vices. As a bonus, her trainer started her on the farm, she’s been ridden around the fields and is good in the tack. She has been with her trainer her entire career, so he can give you a complete history. Liked by all in the barn, this girl is just waiting to shine.
Storm Caution (Under Caution – The Andes Storm, by Illinois Storm): 2009 16.1-hand Thoroughbred gelding
Last raced July of 2016, Storm Caution was restarted almost a month ago. Wonderfully minded with a good foundation started under saddle. Currently being introduced to small jumps. One of the least spooky horses you will ever come across, he is naturally balanced and not hot, with no vices. He recently passed his flexion tests and had his teeth and feet done.
Outdoorsman Gene (Mizzen Mast – Chester Place, by Chester House): 2009 16.0-hand Kentucky bred gelding
Wow! What a cutie! His trainer states that “Gene” is retiring sound after a full racing career. This guy has dapples for days and a forelock and tail that are seriously to die for. CANTER reports that he seemed super level headed, too — absolutely no fuss when they took him out for photos.
He is nicely bred with one of the CANTER track volunteer’s favorite sires, Cozzene, up close. A lovely prospect that could probably go any direction! Located at Golden Gate Fields outside San Francisco.
