I've had this gelding for 8 years and he has been a wonderful jumper for me. His previous owner gave me his papers, but I am having trouble figuring out where he raced (I believe he had 1 start). All I know is she found him in a field basically thrown out like a piece of garbage. I'm not sure where he raced or how he ended up in upstate NY. Would anyone be able to help me w/ this? Thanks :)

Edited what I originally replied now that I've had a chance to look him up here:

Duanesvanlandinham (http://www.brisnet.com/cgi-bin/fc_display.cgi?userfile=P2434682072335), which confirms that he did indeed only have one start and didn't hit the board.

I am amused that he was bred by....get ready for it....Duane Stevens.

Now I'm curious too how he ended up in NY from OK (not sure where his one & only start was either.)

He must be by Vanlandingham! My retired advanced event horse is by Vanlandingham, and we have several Vanlandingham mares as well!

They are great!

That line (Cox's Ridge, Best Turn, Turn-To) threw some big, tough, good-boned horses.

I agree... LOVE LOVE LOVE anything by Vanlandingham. I had this horse for 4 years before I realized how well known his sire was! LOL. He sure is big boned.. looks like a warmblood and has the biggest heart. Love him to pieces, he was my "first horse". I bought him back after selling him when I went to college.

Just thought I'd share a picture- do you have any of your Vanlandingham offspring? I would love to see the resemblance!

I actually know Duane Stevens here in Oklahoma. I have gotten several TB geldings from him that have went on to make great eventers. One was even 2nd at the AECs in the Ammy Training division.....Duane's Country. I sold him to the girl that owns him now about 5 or 6 years ago. I rode a horse by the name of Duane's Frog for quite awhile till I sold him to an Ammy Adult student of Jim Graham in Alabama. Duane Steven loves to raise nice big boned TBs and has had a fair amount of winners here in Oklahoma.

Super nice guy that sure can breed some horses.
