We’ve nicknamed Anna’s Last Man “Big Red” because he reminds us so much of his antecedent the great Man o’ War. A 16.1hh, 2012 gelding by Malibu Moon out of Suzanna Anna by Tale of the Cat, he’s got the bone and bearing and bright red coat of his famous forbear, and while his stride may not be as big as that of the mighty Man o’ War, it’s plenty big! We could see him with a robust Master of the Hounds in a pink coat thundering over the countryside. He could also be a head-turning show hunter because he has such an impressive and steady stride. Red has never raced and has been hanging out in a field with a bunch of matronly dames. At the MMSC, he is learning that the world is a pretty big place and that there are a lot of things to learn and do and a lot of people to meet. And boy does he love to meet people! He’s personable and kind on the ground, but he's very smart and at time has ideas of his own. Like with any talented Thoroughbred, this is a good thing and could serve him well in many ways, particularly on a cross country course, but it will need to be honed and guided by a rider who appreciates and understands precocious horses so that he can achieve the success he's capable of.
