Beautiful indeed, this daughter of Shackleford — a terrific sport horse sire known for horses with ammy friendly brains — is an excellent sport horse prospect. Her owner/ trainer says that she is “super sound and super sweet,” and attests that she has no vices. Beautiful Banks won a maiden special weight level race for this owner/trainer in September, but in her three starts since then against winners she has been less competitive. So her connections would rather find her a new career rather then bring her back to the races next year and have to drop her way down the claiming ladder. She is fully eligible for the RRP, and we think she can be as successful there — and in any sport horse career — as other Shackleford offspring have been. Indeed, sport horse people who have had the pleasure of working with Shackleford offspring rave about them and urge people to snap them up when one is offered. Beautiful Banks has a soft kind eye and expression, a huge sloping shoulder, and an uphill build that suggests excellent aptitude for dressage or eventing. The trainer who sent us these photos was not yet able to find someone to take a video of her, but since the track closes for the winter in just one week, we are posting her now instead of waiting until the weekend to get a jog video. But we did watch the replay of her winning race in September, and we observed a fluid rhythmic canter coming back to the winner’s circle, and that bodes well for her being a good mover as most Shackleford’s are. Her dam, Ferrito, is a granddaughter of AP Indy and Pleasant Colony, also excellent sport horse lines.
