Here is the latest email the seller sent me:
I don't ride TC more than maybe once a week on average because of time constraints so I wouldn't consider him "show ready". Unless you are able to work with him a lot I don't know how much you would be able to do in the ring with him at this point in time. Like I said before, I am willing to work out a lease, but I would really prefer not to because it is so much more work and I wouldn't be able to show him to other people. I am willing to sell him really cheap to someone who will provide him with a good home and works well with him, so that is really what I am pushing for. He is a nice horse with a lot of potential, but he is green and requires training that I don't have the time to give him. The loud breathing in the video is because he is a roarer, but it does not limit his stamina or ability. He raced for four years and did pretty well despite the roaring; it is just somewhat annoying to listen to until you get used to it. Let me know if you want to come out and try him sometime. We'll have to keep an eye out on the weather though since it's been pretty nasty lately.
