A well-endowed racehorse has been put up for auction after struggling to perform on the racecourse because of his “abnormally large testicles.”
Morethannumberone, trained by Gary and John Moore, boasts a modest record of just one win from 15 starts and has been placed on the market after a move to Hong Kong didn’t pan out.
His owner, however, has perhaps thought of the most ingenious sales pitch to attract buyers to his well-endowed beast – offering a solution to the issue of the horse’s hindering manhood.
“Morethannumberone has been a model of consistency this preparation with plenty more to give to his new connections,” the description on Inglis’ sales platform reads.
“His current owner has elected to go to auction with Morethannumberone as he has not qualified for Hong Kong importation. Having been reluctant to geld Morethannumberone, it is believed that his new connections may reap the rewards from the removal of his abnormally large testicles, that have been deemed to cause restriction.
“Morethannumberone is straight forward to train, clean limbed, and rarely will leave feed. Has performed and trained well, and without any hindrance, with the utilisation of a Tongue Tie and Cross-Noseband.”
Assistant trainer James Moore said the team just wanted to be as honest as they could when putting the Morethannumberone up for sale.
“We’re in the business of building a brand and we think transparency is the No. 1 thing we need to do to build that brand,” Moore said, per the Sydney Morning Herald.
“He is a lovely horse and if he gets gelded we think there is a lot of improvement left in him. We just wanted people to know that and whether he’s with us or someone else I’m sure the next owner will have a lot of fun.”
Morethannumberone, ended up selling for $28,500 on Wednesday after being initially bought for $375,000.
