El Gran Turismo is a well packaged athlete! He is balanced, correct and oozes potential. We call him Gizmo around the barn because he is a spunky little dude and he is so stinkin cute. He was recently gelded so while he is currently out with 4 other gelding but you just have to watch the group dynamics and choose buddies wisely. His current group is balanced and happy. He is lovely to work around and handle and he does not have any stable vices.
Under saddle, he is so cool! He has suspension and a spring to his step. He takes quite a bit of leg to keep going forward but you know you are sitting on plenty of horse to conquer anything. Gizmo feels like he will excel at eventing or jumpers and is destined for the show ring. This guy will be a competitor in his second career after retiring from racing without any apparent injuries after 3 unsuccessful starts.
Gizmo comes by his athleticism honestly. His dam, Cambiocorsa, was a Graded Stakes winner who excelled at sprinting on the turf, particularly the downhill turf course at Santa Anita. At one point she went on a 7 race winning streak with 4 of those wins coming in stakes races, including one Grade 3. She finished her career with earnings of over $520k. El Gran Turismo is like a mini-me of his handsome sire, Arch, who passed away earlier this year. He won the Gr 1 Louisiana Super Derby s well as the Gr 3 Fayette Stakes at Keeneland.
