DARK LOVE, 2017 16.2h dark bay filly

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY

For those of you who missed out on the other offspring of Japan that we have posted recently, here is a big gorgeous young daughter of this sire who is proving to be quite popular as a sport horse sire — for good reason, since he is from the Medaglia D’Oro/El Prado/Sadler’s Wells sire line, and his offspring are like this filly — tall, built uphill, gorgeous, big movers, good temperaments.  Dark Love is not showing enough racing ability to persist in that direction — she has had 4 races and has yet to finish better than 5th. Her trainer says that she is very sound. He noted that she has a naturally high hocked step at the trot, and that she has been fully checked over and been given a clean bill by vets.  She is a big strided lofty mover who covers a lot of ground and has good reach from the shoulders. We also watched the videos of her races, and she has a good ground covering gallop that is not high hocked.  We can see her as an excellent dressage or eventing prospect.  Her handler says that Dark Love is a good girl, good to work with, with no vices or issues. Dark Love’s dam Lovely Daniella is by Gold Token out of a mare from the Belong to Me branch of the Danzig sire line.  Dark Love’s pedigree, with the Sadler’s Wells line on top and the Danzig line on her dam side, is very enticing for sporting disciplines.

Price:  $3,000 negotiable
