Gervinho

2010 Bay Stallion
Sire:  Unusual Heat
Dam:  Foreverinthegame
Foaled On:  January 23, 2010
"One of the best horses I have ever trained. GERVINHO had an amazing turn of foot and an incredible mind. It's very dissapointing we never had the chance to try him on the dirt as he trained brilliantly on it."
- Carla Gaines, Trainer
Breaking his maiden at 5.5f first out on Del Mar’s Polytrack at 2, GERVINHO was on the board in EIGHT of NINE career starts. GERVINHO was a stakes winner at 2 and 3, and was assigned one of the top ten weights on the Experimental Free Handicap, ahead of Grade 1 SWs OXBOW, ITSMYLUCKYDAY, etc. GERVINHO was retired after a suspensory injury was discovered following his remarkable win in in his last start where he had to overcome severe interferance in the stretch.
This 16.2 hand horse physically resembles his dirt maternal grandsire, Out of Place, and has substantial substance and bone to go with his size. His female family is a solidly dirt line that has produced stakes winners on both dirt and turf from the likes of the next three dams who are by Skywalker, Key to the Mint and Gallant Man. Many of the top horses in this family have had long careers with multiple starts, a good indicator of soundness.
