If you have ever been around a horse that looks you up and down or tests you a bit to see if you are worthy, his guy definitely does that. From the moment you walk into his stall until you are done with the ride, you feel you are being sized up. After all, he raced for 7 years earning over $600,000 at 10 different tracks all across the country from NY to CA and LA to Canada. Add to that he is also a Stakes Placed horse who won 14 races throughout his career, so he knows how to compete. Jimmy is also very self-confident and he could use a strong leader to channel his abilities into a top athlete in any discipline. With his quick brain and forward movement, he might excel in Eventing or Jumpers with time and proper schooling. Right now he could use more basic flat work and strengthening of his hind end before beginning to jump though. With each ride he has become more solid and workmanlike, so he is a fast learner. Jimmy has no vices and is suitable for any discipline. He has not been out with another horse yet, but he should get a turn out buddy soon.
Jimmy’s sire, Lost Soldier, was purchased for $500,000 as a weanling, raced in the US, CAN and EUR for 6 years with 45 starts, a record of 11-7-5 and earned over $400,000. Lost Soldier’s sire, Danzig, was a former leading sire. Quiet American was a MGSW with 12 starts with a record of 4-3-1, earning over $750,000 and is by Fappiano who won 10 of his 17 starts.
