“Peanut Butter” – SOLD!
Two Year-Old, Competition Quality, No Vices
“Peanut Butter” is a two year-old, 16 hh (on his way to 16.2+) bay Thoroughbred gelding for sale direct from the track. If you have the time to work with a young horse, this one is worth the effort. “Peanut Butter” was started correctly with long lines, driven and lunged. He ships well and stands quietly for the blacksmith.
“Peanut Butter” is a fantastic mover with a huge stride. He is definitely a people horse, he loves to be brushed and bathed. He is very curious about his surroundings and loves to be around people. He has raced just three times and has shown that he will not be competitive at the level his owners want to race at. “Peanut Butter” is ready for his new career either in the show ring or in the eventing world.
This will be a great project for someone who already has a made horse and wants a young one to finish and bring along slowly. He is a clean slate with no vices, no bad habits. His owners do not want him to end up in lower end racing and they want him to go to a good show home. He should finish over 16.2 hands as Thoroughbred geldings can grow until they are six. “Peanut Butter” is just TWO! He has four + years to grow. He has a great personality. He is an “in your pocket” kind of horse. “Peanut Butter” loves to be bathed and brushed.
If you are waiting to start jumping this year…we have others who are older. We do not want to see this horse rushed and ruined. He has a world of potential for someone who wants to enjoy the process of starting a young horse.
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.

We are not going to talk you into buying a horse! More likely we will ask you to tell us about yourself and your goals. Then, we will help you find the right match or tell you to wait for other horses because none of the current horses are a match.
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.
