    While it sounds outlandish to me, I know nothing about the stallion market. Perhaps if I thought he would be bigger than a Zippo Sensation, I might. What are the comparables?

    It’s great for the sellers, but for the buyers to make their money back in their investment is slim to none. It’s great to see horses sell for this kind of money. You still have another 15 to 20 grand to put into the horse before he ever hits the show pen. So say he wins 100 grand showing, you still have 130 grand to make up till you break even. That’s a lot of breedings. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I personally couldnt do it, but than again if I had 200 grand to drop on a horse it wouldn’t matter.

    I have watched this horse since he was a yearling and have watched him ride since ride #5. This also happens to be my video.

    There are very few times over the years where a true stallion prospect arises. Crystal has everything a future of a true stallion prospect needs. From the black type, to his conformation, his mind, talent , train ability, personality, clean x rays, n/n 5 pane,l and the fact that he is absolutely stunning.

    If your in the horse business you know a true stallion prospect rarely rises. He is one of the exceptional few. Making the $210,000 purchase price back off him will be penny’s spent in a short time.

      As a future stallion prospect prices of this calibre would be normal, in TB’s it can be in the 10’s of millions due to the ability bloodlines & commercial value at stud for the years he’s able to breed….insurance to cover loss of use is determined by all the above: I would probably say thats rather cheap for a young horse like this as a 2yro

    If this stallion is 2 years old in this video, why is anyone riding him? His bone plates haven’t even finished fusing. I know different breeds of horses have different estimated times of that happening, but 2? I dont get it.
