The equine President Trump, was gelded at Snaith Racing’s stables at Philippi, Cape Town yesterday after proving difficult to train. “He was unruly and unmanageable,’’ said Justin Snaith. “All he wanted to do was jump all the fillies.’’
The son of Philanthropist was bought by Etienne Braun for R200 000 at the Emperors Palace Select Yearling Sale in April last year.
Continued Snaith: “President Trump was also very vocal and would just not focus on his work. I considered blinkers and a tongue-tie but he was so unmanageable that we had little option but to geld him.’’
Snaith, a Champion South Africa trainer and World Record holder of 8 winners on a day, mentioned that the colt had tons of ability but had a bad attitude and was a nightmare to work with.
