Hong Kong Gardens is a 2015, 16 hand Thoroughbred gelding who is looking for his new career after retiring clean-legged and sound from racing. This horse is super fun to be around. He has a ton of curiosity and personality. Hong Kong e is great to ride on the track. He has no vices and he is up to date on everything.
UPDATE December 2019: Hong Kong Gardens took a well deserved rest after his racing career was over. He is now being used as a pony horse at the track! In two days, he learned to neckrein, side pass, and turn on the haunches while wearing a Western saddle. He leads horses to the gate and stands quietly when they break open! This horse has a BRAIN! He is so good at his new job that he is not currently available. We will keep checking with his owners but I doubt he will become available again.
This boy gets on a step-up trailer or a ramp trailer with no issues and ships quietly. His trainer really pampers her horses and they all get regular visits to the chiropractor and acupuncturist. The only regular visits Hong Kong has missed…is to the winner’s circle.
Hong Kong is ready to transition to his new show career. He is believed sound for any sport horse career and we know he is sane. Don’t miss out on this one because he will be at the top of the show ring in any discipline. He absolutely floats across the ground at a trot. He is a super cool horse and has been turned out occasionally with mares and other geldings with no issues. This is one very nice big boned gelding.
Oh, and one more thing. Hong Kong Gardens sold at the Keeneland yearling sales in 2016 for $105,000! He is sale priced at just a fraction of his yearling sale price three years ago. Thoroughbred don’t sell for six figures at the Keeneland sale if there is anything wrong with them. He is not selling for anywhere near that price because in 18 races, he won only one! This year, he has been running monthly since March and he is consistent in his ability finish at the bottom of the field to beat just one or two horse in each race. His last race was on July 11, 2019 and he finished last.
Hong Kong Gardens is a nice sweet horse with no talent for racing. He has an impressive pedigree and a disappointing race record. He would make a great sport horse for someone who wants a buddy as well as a fancy show horse. He just needs someone to love him and give him a chance at a different career. He is a super nice mover with an in-your-pocket personality Is he your perfect match? Give us a call and we can see.
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.
