BOSTON GIRL, 2017 15.3h bay filly
Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
Known around her barn as “Emma,” Boston Girl may be too slow to go on with her racing career, but with her build, lovely movement, and great sport horse pedigree she has exciting unlimited potential for a new career. After 7 races in which she has yet to hit the board, her owner and trainer realize that Emma’s talents lie in a discipline other than racing. They report that Emma prefers the turf, which bodes well for eventing! She last raced on May 19, 2021, so she is fully eligible for the 2021 and 2022 RRP. Her trainer, who has had her since she was a yearling, reports that Emma is very sound (her legs are clean but for a small scar on her right front shin from when she was a baby, but this is purely cosmetic), good to ride (her trainer also gallops her) and a very nice mover who does what the rider asks and goes along in a nice frame. She says that Emma can be mouthy and a bit pushy in a playful way, so she would be best suited for someone experienced in dealing with young horses off the track. We admired Boston Girl’s balanced athletic build, and her light balanced trot with good suspension. Eventing, dressage, jumping — all should be right up her alley! She is sired by Wicked Strong, a young sire from the Hard Spun/Danzig line who is already gaining a following as a sire in eventing/sport horse disciplines. Her dam, Just Say Hey, is by Rockport Harbor, a son of Unbridled’s Song — another sire line much coveted in the sport horse world.
