Dazzling Deputy is a 2013, dark bay, 16.2 hand gelding with a sweet personality. He seems to like racing but he is not winning. The vets have been all over him checking for anything that would make him not run well including scoping him for breathing problems. They can find nothing wrong with this horse. ‘Deputy’ does have some freeze fire marks from splints on the back of his legs that are very old and not an issue. He is a kind horse who loves to eat and enjoys his job but it is now time for him to find a new job.
He is believed sound for any career including dressage, eventing or as a hunter/jumper. He might even make a good fox hunter with his solid build. He has run 36 times and he has on $64,728. He is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project. His last race was on March 18, 2019.
Dazzling Deputy has a dazzling pedigree with Giants Causeway, Storm Cat, Secretariat, Blushing Groom, Deputy Minister, Northern Dancer, Raise a Native, Hansel, Roberto and the great sport horse sire Dynaformer. Well bred horses tend to do very well in second careers. This horse has been well cared for and well trained which gives the buyer of him an advantage when retraining. No downtime necessary as he has no injury to rehab from.
Please call for pricing. The price can go up or down depending on owner. We always check with the owner when someone is a serious buyer. Many times the price goes down to a really good home. We do not own these horses so we cannot control the pricing. We will not sell a horse to just anyone with the money. 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 770-704-6595 between 9am and 9pm. East Coast Time – Elizabeth Wood
