Earlymorningrain is a 2016, dark bay Thoroughbred gelding. He is a huge 16.3 hands tall and could grow even more. ‘Rain’ is a very well-built boy. If you are looking for a big laid back horse, you may have just found him. He has been used to teach a young man how to gallop Thoroughbreds at the track. He has also been ridden in a Western saddle to pony the babies to the track in the morning.
Earlymorningrain looks like an Irish fox hunter. He has Irish breeding so he comes by his size on his sire’s side. His sire is Dawn Approach who won stakes races at Currach in Ireland as well as at Newmarket and Ascot in England. Dawn Approach currently stands stud in Ireland. Earlymorningrain’s sire, grandsire, and great grandsire are all Irish studs.
‘Rain’s’ breeding includes Northern Dancer, Gone West, Galileo, Sadlers Wells, Pleasant Colony (Derby and Preakness winner), Gone West, Triple Crown winners Secretariat and Seattle Slew, Alydar, Nearctic, Nearco, Native Dancer, Raise a Native. This is a well-bred horse.
‘Rain’ is vice-free and clean-legged. He is very laid back and would be able to go in any direction. He is pretty chill so maybe he would fox hunt. He certainly would make a fun and easy project.
This is the kind of horse that I get calls for all the time. “Please call me when you find a big, quiet, gelding that is sound for …” . While we are not able to call everyone when we get one like this, you can be sure not to miss out if you sign up for our EARLY RELEASE Mailing List and Follow our Facebook page. This horse’s photo went up on Facebook and then we did a mailing to our mailing list of people who want to know first about the new horses we have for sale.
Earlymorningrain is well priced at $3,750.
Please call for current pricing. The price can go up or down depending on the 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 about 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
