Indiana Rib aka “Indiana Man” is a 2009 16.1 hand chestnut Thoroughbred gelding for sale direct from the race track. He is sweet with no vices and he won his last race. He has been pinfired on the inside right front looks like a small splint. Other than that he is clean legged. He likes a kind caring hand when being handled. He is really nice to ride. This guy is the complete package. He is stunning to watch move and would be able to compete at any level and any discipline. He can be a touch difficult to shoe so he needs a patient blacksmith.
His owner wants him gone. The trainer does not want to sell him to low-end racing but may be forced to if we do not find “Indiana Man” a home THIS WEEK. Please CALL: 770-704-6595
UPDATE NOVEMBER 9, 2015: SOLD! Saved from low end racing!

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.

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.
