2002 Bay Thoroughbred Gelding
Dynaformer Impulse Shopper, by Dr Blum


Final Markdown, "Mark", is by the famous sire of Barbaro, Dynaformer, and out of a Shopper line mare.  Despite his pedigree, he did not have the makings of a successful racehorse, and retired to stud after only three starts.  He stood at stud through 2007, and was gelded in April of 2008.  Mark has a lovely way of going and is very easy going.  His only vice is he will crib, but controlled with a collar.  He is currently barefoot and sound on an old set bow.  He has the makings of a great hunter with his quiet, big canter and laid backed attitude.  This guy is a joy to have around and a pleasure to ride.  As an added benefit, he is truly handsome!
