yes! In my very non professional opinion, I think he's extremely cute! I love my compact little OTTB!

Go for it. He is only 3 so he may still grow a little

He has the same broodmare sire, Quadratic, as TWO horses that ran around Rolex last year, Vaunted and one of Duttons, The Foreman (JC name is Four Across)

Sure ~ if you want him - go get him ~ Jingles for a safe & speedy trip.

TB or not TB?

I REALLY like him, and I consider myself to have a fairly educated eye on conformation and picking youngsters. He has a spectacular hind end and a wonderful eye. I think you will not be limited athletically with this horse.

of course!

I'm always cautious of horses coming off the track at 2 or 3 so just make sure he really doesn't want to be a racehorse and there isn't something more serious going on. Even if it just takes bring a pair of trained eyes or asking around the track about the trainer and/or horse.

GOOD LUCK! My fav. 2 horses were/are CANTER geldings :yes:

Ooooh subk, thanks for that info. Quadratic is my (now-retired) horse's sire. My boy was an awesome event horse who took me through advanced, and the dressage judges always loved him.

OP, go get him!!! Not that I'm biased, or anything...:lol:

I've been admiring Twocarrots for months--that is just the cutest name. :)

So why haven't you picked him up yet?! He has a new photo, ANY reasonable offer will be considered! and he has twelve--twelve! starred mares in his pedigree (http://www.pedigreequery.com/twocarrots). GO GO GO!

I have to ask, what do the stars mean?

Do you seriously think we'd tell you NOT to get him? He's adorable, he's young, looks sensible. And at 3, he still has the potential to get a little taller. If not, he'd make a great horse for a young rider or a shorter adult.

YES...hey ask LAZ, one of her students did Rolex on a horse that was 15.2, at age 18!!!! And Teddy? It's the size of the heart that really matters. He's got both good conformation and breeding! Get in the truck NOW.

FYI - he has 8 starts, did scrape a win 4 races back but his last three has been dead last - "outrun" and "showed little"

http://www.pedigreequery.com/index.php?query_type=faq:


Q: What do the green stars in the pedigree displays mean.

A: The green stars are used to denote Reine's-De-Course mares. "Reine-De-Course" is French for "Queen of the Turf". Ellen Parker has done an incredible amount of research on infuential mares in thoroughbred pedigrees and every so often, she does a write up on a new mare and designates a new Reine-De-Course. For more information, see http://www.reines-de-course.com.

it's an asterisk, and means "photo available" (look at the bottom right of the pedigree ;))
