More About This Horse

"CASINO ROYALE is the ultimate stallion. Rarely have I ever handled a stallion, or a gelding for that matter, that is such a gentleman around people and other horses, and yet he is the most beautiful horse to ride, with outstanding paces,balance and perfect flying changes. His jump is also to die for, sharp front end, super back end, and a careful watchful attitude that has seen him win already in Australia. I am very much looking forward to campaigning him up through the ranks. And of course it doesn't hurt that he is the most stunning looking elegant coal black stallion with the most exquisite head."
