Nearly Irish aka “Irish” – SOLD!

"Irish" - Grey Thoroughbred Horse for sale

 

“Irish” is a March 2010, 16 hand and a half an inch tall grey Thoroughbred gelding for sale from his breeder. He has recently retired from a racing career of just 14 starts. He is clean legged and vice free. He has a wonderful personality. We have sold three of his siblings and they are all very sweet and sensible. Irish is a very nice mover and we have a slow motion video that displays his wonderful trot. He carries himself naturally and would make a fantastic 3-day eventer or an “A” show hunter/jumper. He is suitable for all disciplines. Irish has a gentle and kind disposition.

“Irish” is located at his breeder’s farm in Lexington, KY. For those on our mailing list that are looking for a horse that has upper level potential, don’t wait to call. We would really like “Irish” to go to someone who can give him the training that will allow him to an ambassador for off-the-track Thoroughbreds. His breeder will require you to keep her updated with photos and training reports. She loves her horses and we don’t let her horses go to just anyone.

UPDATE April 27, 2015: Congratulations to Ann Archibald of Hampton, CT on the purchase of Nearly Irish!

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.
