Downtown Guy is a 16hh, 8 y/o Standardbred gelding born on 04/01/2004 in Port Hope, Ontario. Guy is a pacer who had 84 starts - 13 wins, 11 seconds and 10 places - and he earned $51,772 in his career. His last start was 06/19/2009.
Guy is a super sweet and friendly boy. It was hard to get a picture of his body because he wanted to be right next to me the whole time. He is good with other horses (appears to be at the bottom of the totem pole), loads and unloads, easy to handle and very polite.
He is super well broke to ride and spent some time at a trainers. He has been ridden walk-trot-canter and by teenagers and beginner riders as well.
