This is Gray Zulu. He is a 5 y/o, 16.1hh Thoroughbred gelding. He was born March 5, 2007 and won his debut race in February 28, 2010 at Santa Anita, 5.5F $32k maiden claiming. He is out of Village Choir and by Amaruk. Here is his full pedigree: http://www.pedigreequery.com/gray+zulu
He has been ridden under saddle very easily. His owner rode him all winter in the indoor and he was very straightforward and professional to handle and ride. She says she is quite happy to be ridden in English tack and has a decent understanding of riding aids. He has no vices. He is up to date on all vaccines, worming etc and is in beautiful condition.
However, he fractured his pastern a month or so ago. Her vet says the fracture is non displaced. He will still need another 3 - 3 1/2 months of stall rest before he will be sound for riding again. He is currently on stall rest and is comfortably moving about his stall and gets up and lies down without issue.
