“Collio” – Big Beautiful Bay Boy – SOLD!

"Collio" - Beautiful Bay Thoroughbred Horse For Sale from the Track

SOLD! Congratulations to Dana Katselas of Walden, NY on the purchase of Cold Feet aka  “Collio”.

“Collio” is a 16.3 hand, 2006 bay Thoroughbred gelding. He was claimed in 2009 and has been with the same trainer since then. He has been galloped by the same gallop boy since then and groomed by the same groom since then. We have been watching this horse work out daily for six years and waiting for the chance to find him a new home.

“Collio” has no soundness issues and we confirmed this by speaking with the horse’s vet. He has never been injected by the current trainer and there is no reason why he ever would have been. This horse is extremely well loved by his racing connections. Tears were streaming down everyone’s eyes when we showed up to take his pictures.

Yes, this horse could continue to win on the bottom but his trainer would rather retire him now then have someone claim him from him and continue to race him. Since he has held up this long for racing, with no injuries, he should remain sound for a long second career doing any kind of competition. He is sound and clean legged up-to-date on everything. He is a ham in the barn asking for attention and treats. When “Collio” needed time off, he has been turned out and he is great in the pasture.

This horse has super star presence on the track you cannot miss him galloping out there. He is naturally round and uses himself. He is well behaved but still has some energy to him. Do not overlook him because of his age — he is just heading into his prime for a show horse. He could event, do dressage or be a master huntsman horse.

It is a must that the new owner keeps in touch with his track connections. This is one special horse looking for his special owner. He has shipped all over to race and gladly jumps on the trailer to travel. This horse has seen it all and would make the transition from track to ring with no problem. He is class from the ground up. He is priced right to the right home.

“Collio” is eligible for the $100,000 Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium at the Kentucky Horse Park this October.  He is currently in race training and is still at the track.

PLEASE READ THESE BEFORE CALLING: How Much Is This Horse and What is the Jockey Club Name?

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.

Jockey Club names are not 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.

If you see a horse you like:

Don’t wait to see if he is there tomorrow.
Don’t wonder how much he is – CALL!
Don’t wait to see what your friends say – 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.
