This beautiful, solid-bodied and well balanced homebred young daughter of Alphabet Soup, after only 5 starts, is letting her owner/breeder/trainer know that racing is just not her best game. But with her excellent conformation, very nice movement, good temperament, and great sport horse bloodlines, we think she can excel in many other disciplines. She is clean legged, described as sound, and she was perfectly behaved for her photo session. Jogged by one of our volunteers, she displayed very nice balanced movement with excellent behavior. We pegged her height as 15.3+ / 16h,. and she is likely to grow some more — we think she will top out at over 16h. And with her solid body and strong shoulder, she will surely take up the leg of a taller rider. She was turned out all winter at her owner/trainer’s farm, and he said she is very relaxed in that environment, and turns out well with other horses. He says she gets more nervous in the racetrack environment, although we did not see that in her demeanor with us, as she posed and jogged for us politely. Her sire, Breeder’s Cup winner Alphabet Soup, is from the Cozzene/Caro sire line, much coveted in the sport horse world, and he is known for siring later maturing horses who are durable and good jumpers. Her dam is from the Buckpasser line, which is also known for durable, good brained sport horses.
Young, sound, grays are very popular, so we recommend calling fast if you are seriously interested.
