Clanton’s Dancer is REALLY 17.2 hands tall and just four years old. Yes, we sticked him three times on level cement ground so there would be no mistake about this gelding. Besides being young and tall, he is clean legged and vice free. He loads on the trailer without issues and he stands perfect for the blacksmith. “Dancer” has been with his owner/trainer since he was purchased as a yearling at the Keeneland sale.
“Dancer” was started correctly and is ready for a new career because he is not a racehorse. He has had just five starts and finished from his best race, in 6th place which was up from 10th place in his first race. One of the comments on the race chart said, “…Dancer was not a factor”.
Anytime we get a call from a seller saying they have a 17+ hand horse for sale, I laugh. They are very rarely that big in the racehorse world. But, the fact that the call came from one of our legitimate breeder/sellers who said he is, “Big but he is slow” – made me get interested.
This guy is super cool. He was a little up when was jogging beside the yearling field as 10 yearlings galloped back and forth beside him but that was unusual for him to be that excited. See a jog video on our FB page. He is super chill and super cool. These pictures do not do him justice at all.
UPDATE APRIL 2018: Clanton’s Dancer has been SOLD! Tom Hartig (husband of Justnamehimeddie’s owner – Jennifer Hartig) has purchased ‘Dancer’ to be his own Thoroughbred. Now there will be no fighting over who gets to ride ‘Eddie’. LOL
‘Dancer’ now known as ‘Clancy’ will be coming to Bits & Bytes Farm in about two weeks for a month of ‘Get Acquainted Training’. Watch our website and Facebook page for more updates. If you are live in the Atlanta, GA area or are visiting, give us a call and stop by to meet ‘Dancer/Clancy’ and the other horses we have gotten off-the-track since 2001. We have 19 year-old Thoroughbreds we got off the track and we have a five year old too as well as many ages in between.
Clanton’s Dancer is the complete package and he still has a ton of growing and filling out to do. So, please remember that he will get bigger in the next year. REALLY. I do believe he could be anything with the right rider. If you are looking down the road for a superstar look no further cause this one is your guy. We love when a trainer calls and says I got a big one but he is slow…
Clayton’s Dancer has been SOLD! Do call us right away if you see a horse you like. We will not sell a horse to just anyone with the money and we don’t send prices by PM or email. We carefully select the horses we sell and we work hard to make a perfect match. If you don’t call, we cannot help you. We are not a rescue and our horses are not ‘rescue priced’. Most horses are between $2500 and $4500 – some higher and some lower. Call and we can talk more our horses and let us help you find the perfect match. We take the gamble out of getting a Thoroughbred off-the-track. Learn more about how our Track Prospect Horses are priced on the main Bits & Bytes Farm website.
I look forward to speaking with you. Please call 770-704-704-6595 between 9am and 9pm. East Coast Time – Elizabeth Wood
