17 hands he last raced on 2/23/22 at Turfway Park. He retired sound/slow. He does have mild to moderate stringhalt.
Belafonte is a huge gelding with a fun and curious personality. He is a little fidgety while tacking up but should work out of that with patience and regular work. He was brave in the arena and walked/trotted boldly over poles with first asking. He saw himself in our tack room mirror and couldn’t stop staring at his dashing good looks.
A nice ride with a forward trot and canter, our rider stated she didn’t even notice the stringhalt. He was very willing and wanted to please. Suitable for most disciplines at any level.
No other issues were found during the vet exam.
