Grand Canny
Canny Lad (AUS) 1987
Grand Acclaim (AUS) 2006
19 September 2012
Forbes 2871 NSW, Australia

Grand Canny is a 5yo bay or brown gelding.
He stands a little over 15hh and is one of the last progeny of the champion Canny Lad.
He is easy to handle, float and train. Grand Canny had minor surgery to remove a cyst in 2016 but has rehabilitated and returned to training and racing without any issue.
He has had 11 race starts and as yet not been placed. He is currently in full work and in very good health.
He might make a good “project” horse for any owner/trainer and he would also adapt easily to being retrained as a show hack. With only a few days left of this auction, buyers need to be quick.
He is currently stabled in Forbes (NSW). Purchaser is responsible for transport.
