Bypass is a 16.2 (and a half!), bay, 3 year old gelding who arrived at the very end of October by way of Beyond the Wire in Maryland. This boy raced only two times and never broke his maiden. He sustained a very small bowed tendon at the end of his short career. His veterinarian at the track suggested keeping him in light work as he heals. Upon evaluation, our vet was inclined to agree with him. He’s been cleared for some turnout to keep moving around and let Mother Nature mend the tendon as it’s really very mild.
We are optimistic with sufficient time and proper care he will be able to return to an athletic career. While we are still getting to know him, we have observed no vices. He is quite up and we think will benefit mentally from turnout once he gets his feet done on November 2nd. We will try to post an update in a couple weeks once he’s adjusted to turnout, but at this time he will require an experienced handler.
For those who enjoy looking at bloodlines, this guy is by Discreet Cat who is by Forestry. We’ve had plenty of horses by both Discreet Cat and Forestry who have been athletic partners for their eventual adopters.
Bypass will be available for adoption for $1,000 until he gets farther along in his rehab.
