Championofthenile aka “Niles” is a handsome and full bodied young gelding with a super attitude. He is by the super sire Pioneerofthenile and sold for an impressive $840,000 as a two year old in training. Niles went on to earn $155,000 during his career and was a stakes placed horse. Niles was retired after he last raced on January 1st of this year at Aqueduct. After a little time off Niles has transitioned back into light riding and hasn’t put a foot down wrong. He is respectful and and obedient of his rider, not spooky and really enjoys having a job. Niles is rhythmical on the flat, picks up both leads and moves off the leg easily. He will be a great project for someone to bring along that is looking for a steady young horse with a quiet temperament. On the ground, he is easy to handle and stands well for the farrier. He was recently gelded before coming into the program and is currently turned out alone. We do not anticipate any problems transitioning him to turnout with other geldings. Niles is will be suited for a flatwork/pleasure career and low level jumping in time. He retired from racing with some arthritis in the upper right knee joint. Our veterinarians feel that he will be suitable for most riding disciplines. X-rays are available upon request to approved adopters. Niles is 2017 RRP and Pony Club Challenge eligible.
