SOXY RUBY, 2012 16.3h chestnut mare
Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
When Ruby’s trainer contacted us about listing her, he said “she’s big and gorgeous” — and wow was he ever right! She has good bone and a muscular build that is framed by her shiny new copper penny coat, and her chrome adds to her flashy appearance. By the time we got to her barn, Ruby’s legs had already been done up after her morning gallop and the handler was kind enough to remove her bandages so we could see her pretty socks and get a look at her legs. The yellow hue is from the Furazone put on her legs prior to bandaging, a routine procedure in many shedrows. Ruby is described as an all around good citizen with no vices, excellent stall manners (although she is sensitive about being brushed) and we saw a lovely mare who oozes class and elegance. Her trainer reports that she is sound and hasn’t had any issues in the many years they have had her. She has a powerful engine for good push and propulsion and a strong shoulder for reach. She displayed lovely movement at the jog with nice suspension and loft. With her size and beauty, this mare will be noticed wherever she goes and, after her very successful racing career, she has plenty of miles left for success in her new career. Ruby has 69 lifetime starts with 7 wins, 18 seconds and 11 thirds, and she has earned over $175,000 –testament to her heart and durability. Don’t let her age put you off: the recent Olympic equestrian events in Tokyo showcased upper level competitors much older than her.
She is by Noonmark, who is by Unbridled’s Song, out of a Precise End mare. This big gorgeous great moving mare has unlimited potential for a sporting career!
