About Muq

There’s so much to like about Muqtaser! Let’s start with his pedigree. He’s by Distorted Humor out of a Tiznow mare, a great combo for smarts, athleticism, and competitiveness. Secondly, his conformation is balanced, he has great bone, and he has excellent gaits (in particular a big, swinging walk and a round, uphill canter). Third, his history on the track was impressive. He garnered $303,605 in 17 starts at such notable tracks as Newmarket, Royal Ascot, Saratoga, Belmont, and Gulfstream. So clearly, a horse with this many assets should be a wonderful prospect for any new career. That said, Muq is very black and white emotionally and mentally at this point, swinging from an angry and defensive attitude to being very willing and kind. Because of that, he’s going to need an experienced horseman or woman with whom he can bond and who will be able to both help him work through his emotions and also channel his interest and competitive nature in a new direction. There’s no doubt in our minds that there is a wonderful, big-hearted, talented soul in this beautiful horse. He’s just looking for the right venue and partner to show it.
