About Clutch

A winner of $152,793 in 20 starts, Clutch Cargo is pure class. A 16.1h, 2014 gelding by Tapit out of Carmandia by Wild Rush, Clutch comes to the MMSC from Chestertown Farm in New York, and it’s clear that he’s been well-handled and well-cared for his whole life. Under saddle he is straightforward, and on the ground he is kind and engaging. But more than that, he is elegance itself. He flows like pure silk beneath his rider, soft in his mouth and rhythmic in his movement. His bold chrome markings complement his refined features, and even his coat is smooth as silk. If Clutch were a human, he’s the type to find a career as a journalist, keenly interested in people and the world around him, or as a musician, composing beautiful melodies and counterpoints that give his listeners all the feels. With such a thoughtful and gracious nature, he will do well with an equally tender and amiable person, and he should shine in the show hunter ring. Christened as our newest Legacy Horse, Clutch is truly a one-of-a-kind heart horse in the making - all he needs is his perfect match to complete his picture of elegance!

Clutch Cargo has settled in well to the MMSC and is proving to be an apt student! Here, our trainer Kara is long-lining Clutch, working on steering and transitions, while also teaching him softness with the bit. Clutch, a 16.1h, 5-year-old gelding by Tapit, is eligible for the 2019 Thoroughbred Makeover.

About Brown

Alltheleavesrbrown, a 16.3h, 2012 gelding by Big Brown out of Vickey Jane, had an impressive career on the racetrack. In 5 years, at 12 different tracks, and with nearly a complete tour around the United States, “Brown” started in 43 races, flashing brilliant speed and easily swatting away any challengers to his lead when the opportunity presented. Flash forward to the present. Brown has retired from his racing career sound, and a little spa treatment, body work, and educated hands have shown that he’s a naturally enthusiastic and quick learner. Time will tell what this generous gelding wants to do in his next career, but he is already proving that he is far more than just a pretty face.

About Brewer

With his espresso-colored coat and classically compact build, Brewer, a 16h, 3-year-old gelding by Orb out of Dance Craze, is sure to perk up your day. Precocious in all the right ways, he has the eagle eye of an eventer and the smarts and athleticism to back it up. He’s bold to jumps and undaunted by new questions. He knows what he wants, and he’s not afraid to share his opinions. What Brewer needs is the right person, someone who can be his guide rails as he grows up and learns the rules of the road; someone who can channel his sizable sense of self into confidence in a show ring or on a cross country course; someone who can forge a true partnership with him and bring out his best. So if you like your daily coffee dark, bold, and exciting, this handsome gelding is sure to be your brew of choice!

Brewer came to the MMSC with a chip in his knee. He’s sound, but he’s so talented that it makes sense to set him up for success at the highest levels and have the chip removed. Donations to help us pay for the surgery and layup are very welcome (DONATE HERE) and he will remain available for adoption (at a reduced adoption fee) pre-surgery if you are willing to commit to removing the knee chip. Radiographs are available to an approved adopter.

About Cece

A 16.3h, 2016 filly by Graydar out of Curious Cat, “Cece” stood out as a youngster with her stunning good looks, her large stature, and her kind nature. Her breeder, Christian Black of Blackstone Farm in PA, knew she would be happier and would shine brighter in a sport horse career, so he reached out to us. And we are so thankful that he did! Cece has been an absolute joy and a pleasure in the barn. We can’t say enough good things about this filly. She displays rhythmic gaits and a graceful turn of foot at liberty. She engages easily and willingly with humans. She learns quickly and is always curious to explore new questions. Her jump is balanced, effortless, and full of promise. In short, Cece was born to be a show horse. Can you picture her a year or two down the road, taller and filled out, braided to perfection, with a knowledge of the bit and the developed musculature to lift and power from behind? The image is breath-taking. This filly is truly special and she's sure to be a winner wherever she goes!

About Davos

A 16h, 2014 gelding by The Factor out of Imaginary Cat, Iron Mane aka "Davos" has quickly become a barn favorite. With dark, kind eyes and a dappled grey coat, Davos adapted amiably to life at the MMSC. He's newly in training, but has proven to be an uncomplicated, comfortably forward, honest ride. He is forgiving of mistakes and eager to try new things, traits that mark him as an amateur owner's horse in the making. And with relatives like War Front, Storm Cat, and Mr. Prospector, Davos is sure to impress with his athletic ability. Already he displays an eye-catching and rhythmic trot, a big walk, and a willingness to stretch over ground poles. Though the Iron Throne might be beyond his reach, we think Davos could shine in a dressage arena or a show hunter ring. But regardless of the discipline, we know he'll always be the champion of his person's heart.

If you're interested in going on a journey with a kind-natured and honest horse, then you might find Seas to be the perfect partner and friend.

With a royal pedigree featuring Scat Daddy, sire of Triple Crown winner Justify, as well as Unbridled’s Song, Fappiano, and Buckpasser, names prized in sport horse pedigrees, “Wonderful” could go far in any discipline. He possesses a gleeful and boyish inquisitive nature, and his innate athleticism shines through with each training ride and romp in his pasture.

About Arcane

Big-boned, tall and gorgeous gelding. This boy has presence and gorgeous movement. He would excel in the dressage ring. He has done one dressage schooling show. Due to a running injury on my part, and the wet winter weather, he has had time off this winter and will be slowly brought back up. His price will increase with increased riding. While he was at the MMSC, he had education on all phases of riding, including dressage, trail riding, jumping, and a little cross country as well as extensive ground work including ground-driving. He has been ridden all over the Kentucky Horse Park. I bought him as a jumping prospect. He had a great start over fences and was doing well. However, shortly before I got him, he lost his confidence with jumping. So after a few attempts, we decided to just focus on flat work and not jump him at all for six months. We did this, and have since taken him over some cross rails and he was much better, but then I had my injury and he has been off regular work. So at this point, I am looking to sell him as a dressage prospect. For h/j, I would only consider selling him to a home where someone will work with him very slowly and not expect him to jump immediately. Since he is a very big boy, he can be intimidating to the timid rider. He is not an affectionate horse, more work-man like. If you want a cuddy-bunny type horse, he is not the horse for you. If you want a good ride on a horse with a lot of potential, come see him. He would do excellent with a confident rider and/or a trainer. He is sound and on no maintenance. He is not overly spooky or silly.

Adopted from the MMSC: March 2016
Primary Training: Dressage
Location: Southern Indiana
Price: $3500

To inquire, please contact Cherisse LaSalle
Email: c.mareesie@gmail.com

About Charlie

Charlies Swell "Charlie" (located in southern Indiana). Super handsome 16.2hh bay 11-year-old OTTB gelding. Great personality! Very goofy and sweet. Very laid back, not spooky. Good for vet and farrier. Great ground manners. Barefoot and sound. Will need shoes or boots if you plan to ride on hard surfaces, but does fine barefoot in sand arena. Has had lots of groundwork, lunging, and riding since he came off the track. Has not been worked for a while so he is lacking in muscle. Requires an intermediate rider because his under saddle training is not completely finished. He has mild kissing spines, but is rideable. 

Charlie has had xrays, chiropractor, massages, saddle fitter. He just had his annual exam, teeth float, vaccines and Coggins test in April 2019.

I think Charlie would be a good lower level dressage horse, possibly lower level jumping or eventing, and he could also be a good trail horse. He may be capable of going beyond lower levels, but I just don't know.

Price includes new (used one season) Rhino medium weight blanket worth $200, used SmartPak medium weight blanket, ankle boots, cribbing collar, fly mask, a binder with all his racing info, and possibly some other supplies. I am also willing to sell my Schleese dressage saddle (for additional $2K) that has been custom fitted to him, if it fits you and you want it.

About Savannah

Savannah Bay is a 16.3h, 13-year-old TB gelding. He was a stunning youngster, selling for $1.2 million as a yearling at Keeneland. After his racing career, he was donated to the MMSC and thence adopted as a fox-hunter. And he’s been hunting ever since! Savannah has hunted in the field and as a whipper-in’s horse. He is solid and tough and can hunt easily several days a week. He would be best for someone interested in going second flight regularly. Priced to sell to good owner.
