This lightly raced and still growing black daughter of Here Comes Ben is described by her trainer as a very sweet filly, who is not marish at all. She is also a really nice mover, with a flowing big stride and a light trot with nice reach from her shoulders. She looks like an athletic sport horse prospect to us! She came to Finger Lakes from New Jersey in mid-August, and her trainer says she arrived very thin, and she has been eating heartily and packing on weight over the past month. But she still has a lot of growing up and filling out to do. Her bone structure is great, with an uphill build and strong shoulder — we look forward to seeing what she is going to look like in a year after she has been let down from the track, filled out, and started to develop new muscles from retraining. Day Wife has shown no racing ability in her six starts, so her trainer wants to find her a new career to which she is better suited. She is described as sound, and her legs are nice and clean. The trainer reports that she is a very mild cribber only at meal time, and that it is completely controlled with a collar. This sounds to us potentially like a reaction to the stress of track life and possible ulcers, and it might fully resolve when she is transitioned to a new life with turnout, ulcer treatment, and a more forage based diet. Her sire, Here Comes Ben, is by Street Cry out of a mare from Danzig and Halo lines. Her dam is by Precise End, a Forty Niner son, and out of a mare who is a granddaughter of the great Personal Ensign. We think Day Wife is one of the bargains of the season with a bright sport horse future.
