Clanton‘s Dancer aka ’Dancer’ aka ‘Clancy’ – SOLD!
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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Buying Our Thoroughbreds
What is the price of this horse?
Prices are not published because the price can go up or down depending on how the horse is racing. Most horses average $3500 but can be as low as $1000 or up to $5000. We will share the prices when you call. If the horse you call about is not in your budget, we may be able to recommend another horse that is.
What is the Jockey Club name of this horse?
Jockey Club names are not usually listed on the site as the sellers do not want calls from people who have not been screened by us for having the skills to help these horses into new careers. Most horses come with their Jockey Club papers and we will be happy to provide links to their race records and pedigrees when you make the decision to move forward with a purchase. Horses’ whose names are in quotes are not the actual name of the horse. That is the nickname we have listed the horse by.
Where is this horse located?
When we say this is a Prospect Horse, that means the horse is not at our farm in the Atlanta area. Prospect horses are still at the track or owner or trainer’s farm. We can tell you where the horse is when you call. Thoroughbreds move from track to track and to the farm and back. We cannot keep this web site current with so many horses listed and all moving around. That is why we don’t post the location. We are happy to share where the horse is when you call. We may have to make a phone call to find out where the horse is ourselves, but we are happy to share the info with you…if you call.

We are not going to talk you into buying a horse! More likely we will ask you to tell us about yourself and your goals. Then, we will help you find the right match or tell you to wait for other horses because none of the current horses are a match.
Prices change based on what price the owner has set. We add a small markup for our services. Prices can go up or down based on how the horse is racing or how quickly the owner wants the horse sold. Most Prospect horses are priced under $5000 with the average being around $3500. Big sound geldings, grey horses and tall horses usually cost more — but not always. Small mares are your best bet if you are price sensitive.

Lynn’s Vision aka Bubba at his last race – July 5, 2008. He was purchased by Melanie Eberhardt right after this race and brought back to Bits & Bytes Farm the next day. Melanie was riding him just one day later and he was a complete gentleman.
