Deep Dive – SOLD!
Pleasure Horse, Family Horse, No Vices
Deep Dive aka “Sexy” is 2007, 16 hand Thoroughbred gelding for sale from his owner/trainer. Here is what she has to say about him:
“Sexy” is a superkind horse who loves to be ridden and groomed. He will stand all day long for a good curry then give you a look that says, “like why did you stop?” He loves attention and loves his baths. He loves to roll in a freshly cleaned stall and sometimes doesn’t even give you the chance to leave before he will lay down and roll. He loves a routine and loves to go to the track and train. He was an intact stallion till June of 2015 you would never know it because he was so laid back but I knew I had to plan for his future retirement and retiring a stallion is not a good thing to find a home for. He has a right front osslete and that ankle is fused. His left front has an old bow. I will include x-rays and and tendon scan. He has no chips or spurs and is sound but I would prefer a no jumping home so he remains sound for the rest of his life. He would look fantastic under western tack or in the hunter ring. He is built a little down hill and can get on his front end sometimes. I have worked hard at getting him to engage his back end but sometimes it’s hard to do going around the track.
He ground ties for a bath and to get untacked. He is broke to a mounting block. He is great to ship jumps right on ramp or step up trailer and he is also good for the blacksmith. Don’t let his legs deter you. This guy is awesome to ride. He dances for about three strides when you get on him then just relaxes into a cadence walk. He loves to trail ride around the back side on a loose rein sticking his head into tack rooms stealing peppermints from other trainers. This guy is just a class act all the way around and deserves a super nice home with someone who will enjoy him and trail ride him and show him off. He loves to steal carrots from my back pocket and to be hugged and kissed. “Sexy” will hug you back. He loves routine and love attention. Look no further for you next life long companion. If you are on a budget and looking for a good all around pleasure horse, give us a call.
Congratulations to Marcy Morgan on becoming Deep Dive’s new mom. We are so excited for his new career and can’t wait to see him packing kids and adults of all ages around the ring and the hunt field. Thank you Marcy we couldn’t be any happier !!!
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.

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.
