Elegant Eldridge is a 2017, 15.2+ hand, black, Thoroughbred gelding for sale from his breeder/owner/trainer. ‘El’ is just a baby and still growing. He should mature to over 16 hands in the next three years. He has a great disposition and impeccable ground manners. He is good with other horses. He cross-ties, and stands quietly to be clipped. He has no soundness issues or stable vices. ‘El’ is just very SLOW. He is so quiet at the track that his owner/trainer has actually used him for company for the first time babies to the track to give them confidence. He is as quiet as a pony horse. When working out at the track, he is very rateable and will go any speed you want. But when racing, he just does not have the speed needed to win.
This guy has a ton of growing left to do and will be a big beautiful boy for sure. This is a horse that could go any direction you like. He is young, drop-dead gorgeous, AND he has a brain. Elegant Eldridge is the complete package. ‘El’ has raced just seven times with his best finish being fourth. In his last race, he broke from the gate in 8th place, and at the wire, he was dead last in 10th place. He finished dead last in the race before that as well, and dead last in the race before that. Finishing last, in his last three races, should answer any questions about why he is for sale. This is your chance to get a Thoroughbred directly from his breeder. We know his entire history because his breeder is the one who raced him and is selling him. She has no need for a beautiful but slow gelding. She has asked us to find him a home where he will be loved and be appreciated. This is a horse that will stand out in the show ring! He is your next competition partner?
Please call for 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
