A striking chestnut four-year-old gelding by Arvico is offered for sale. The current owner is willing to retain 50% or sell outright.
**UPDATE: Feb 2018**
This gelding is now being backed and loose schooled at home. He is going very nicely and showing lots of scope.
This athletic and good looking youngster is out of a winning Vettori mare named Zuleta. She was placed numerous times on the flat over middle distances and won over hurdles later in her career. She proved her soundness and durability during a long career.
Her credentials as a NH broodmare are enhanced by the identity of her sire. Although better known as a flat stallion, Vettori has been responsible for such high class jumpers as the Grade-2 winning hurdler Never. The second dam of Zuleta gave the prolific winning hurdler and chaser Honest Word, who won in Listed class.
Arvico was a winner on the flat and over hurdles during his racing career and has gone on to carve out a fine reputation as a NH sire - despite limited opportunities. His best runners include the four-time Grade-1 winning chaser Arvika Ligeonniere and the Listed winning and Grade-3 placed chaser Ultra Lucky.
This attractive young store is nicely bred, has a great temperament and is an outstanding mover. He rates a really exciting NH prospect and is only for sale due to the current owner's lack of time.
