“Percy” is a flashy 2020 chestnut Thoroughbred gelding by Street Magician, the third leading Maryland racing sire in 2018 & 2019.... (read more) This sire’s offspring have earned over $6.5 million on the track with average earnings over $61,000. This past summer a son of Street Magician, WhenIGetToHeaven, was named reserve champion of the 86th Maryland Thoroughbred Assoc. Annual Yearling Show. Out of ListenToTheWindBlo, a granddaughter of Danzig, Percy is sure to have a bright future as a sport horse with his ground covering stride, athletic build, and willing demeanor. Percy has been a part of our Equine Youngstock Training and Marketing course and has been desensitized to many novel objects. He stands nicely for tying, picking up feet, and grooming. He has easily kept up with the older horses in the course and showcases his intelligence daily. By sale time we anticipate he will additionally lunge at the walk and load into a stock trailer. Percy is up to date on all routine health care and has no known health issues. The following paperwork will be provided in his sale portfolio: health record with vaccine, deworming and farrier records for the past year, current Coggins, and a health certificate if traveling out of state lines.
