Sanimo

Sanimo is a royally bred gelding by Smart Strike, out of the Galileo (IRE) mare, Sanima (IRE). As he continued to show little promise on the racetrack, Rosie Napravnik, who had fallen in love with his magnificent gallop, inquired about his status with Dell Ridge Farm. After one final try at breaking his maiden, Dell Ridge Farm delivered Sanimo to the lovely Four Ponds Farm to join the Rosie Napravnik Off-Track Sporthorses training program. Sanimo is the epitome of athleticism, as his breeding suggests he should be! His leggy, yet compact build, makes him a power in the show jumping ring. His incredible gallop and boldness on cross country are exactly what the upper levels demand and his big movements and extension will make him competitive in the dressage arena! Sanimo retired 100% sound from racing, after just 4 starts. He has strong, thick bone and big, solid feet. After his last race, he was given almost an entire year off, to let down and grow. Sanimo was the winner of the Eventing discipline at the 2019 RRP TB Makeover and finished the season competing confidently and competitively at the Recognized Novice level. He has been started slowly and properly and works with a great, enthusiastic attitude! This really is the horse that can go all the way!
