    Sigh. Have to get the one I already have going well and sold.

    It's still fun to window shop though.

    Thank God he's not grey. That would put me over the edge.
    We're spending our money on horses and bourbon. The rest we're just wasting.

    Lovely looking. I thought this was the trainer that everyone says to beware of, though?
    I evented just for the Halibut.

    Just did a quick search on here with the trainers name and it would seem so. Which is such a pity, but if someone is close enough to see the horse and get a good vet check...

    I didn't read in depth what is up with the trainer.

    Well, I imagine you'd pay his asking price in custom saddle fees to fit over those withers!

    What's odd is the horse last raced in Aug. at River Downs with trainer Charles Lawson....did Mark Bliss claim him? or is he selling him for the owner/trainer?

    Good looking horse....not much of a race horse. But worth looking at.

    I was just looking at that. Claiming price on that race was $5,000. I would want to get in contact with the "previous" owner/trainer to make sure everything is on the up and up.

    I think, based on the info on this Bliss guy, I would pass this horse up (if I was really looking) unless I had a good friend in the area to use as my eyes.

    He's worth looking at just because he has Transworld. Mark Bliss or no Mark Bliss. But a comprehensive PPE and real eyes to see him would seem to be essential.

    Fingers crossed he is healthy and gets a good home soon.

    Just for curiosities sake, I emailed Mark and got the link to the video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lp4Ezixt-s

    And this was his reply:

    "You may see a video of BIG AJ by going to www.youtube.com and searching for Blue Valley Farm Big A. J. This tape was made on his "second day home from the races".

    He has a history of soundness and we are confident that he will pass all veterinarian inspection.

    Best regards,

    Mark Bliss

    That is Marks barn and his daughter riding horse....Roosevelt Stables, Blue Heaven..whatever the same same guy....

    Here's the deal...you may be buying him from Mark but there is no knowing who actually owns the horseand if they even know the horse is being sold!!!...read the previous threads...see the judgements AGAINST him.....there are other things besieds NASAID they use to keep horses racing sound....Sorry I have know this Character and his rep up close and personal from back almost 40 years..and Yes I bought 1 horse 1X from him very upfront when he 1st appeared back in PA @ Pipersville and then subsiquesnt horses offerd had very dubous histories.

    He even offered to take my $60K WB fancy WEF show hunter..yes I did have one of those...back to WEF for the winter and have his daughter show and sell him for me...So Not happening....this was after he came to try ther horse and suddenly didn't have the sale price but would do me a favor...yeah and I want to buy a bridge..
