Our volunteer who took the photos of the adorably cute Bistrita reports that the filly just wanted to snuggle with her and get pats and attention. Bistrita’s owner, who also gallops her, says she is a smart filly, sound and good to work with, and that she has no vices. He states that she can be on her toes if she hasn’t done anything for a few days, but she settles right into her work. She has ten starts, with one win and 4 additional pla
cings. Her owner wants to return to Belmont in September, and he knows that Bistrita will not be competitive on that tougher NYRA circuit, so he would like to find her a new career now. We photographed her just a couple of days after she raced on August 2, and showing her durability, she is entered again on Tuesday August 16. But then she will be ready to move on. With her smaller stature Bistrita should appeal to polo people, but with her sweet personality she could also make a great horse for a kid working with a trainer. She is a well bred young filly who sold for $90,000 as a weanling. Her sire is Gormley, a young son of Malibu Moon. Her dam is by Giant’s Causeway out of a mare from the Mt. Livermore/Blushing Groom line. These are great sport horse sires in her pedigree.
Price: $3500 negotiable
