    Default Tell me about Castle Cove

    I know he is by Castle Magic and CM's accomplishments.

    What type mare does CC produce best with, how have his get done both in performance and on the line. What will he improve vs potentially exaggerate.

    I know that Olin Armstrong rode him and I saw him show. Lovely overall package.

    Round jump and big step. Should definitely improve most type mares as he had a lovely front end and was short coupled.

    The only bad thing that I've ever heard about this line for hunters is that Clavier and his sons have had a reputation for sometimes throwing less than ideally straight front legs. There was also a comment by one of the hunter experts in a thread here that the horses are better in action than on the flat. Might have been CBoylen who opined. OTOH, she could have been talking about Fun and Fancy Free, since I often get those two a bit confused.

    You could do a search.
