DREAMS STILL WILD, 2018 15.3h dk. b. filly
Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington NY (near Rochester)
Nearly black, the flashy chrome really stands out on this fancy filly. We thought she was gorgeous as she stood for her photos, but then when we saw her move, our assessment went to fabulous as well! Your dreams really can run wild with this one! She is lightly raced, with 1 win in 8 starts. Her trainer says that while she is very sound, she is just not happy with the racing life –the trainer says that she gets very stressed on her way from the saddling paddock through the tunnel onto the track before a race, sapping all her energy so that she shows early speed from the gate and then fades in the stretch. But she’s fine when galloping in the mornings, Her handler said that she could benefit from some turn out and let down time to grow up, enjoy being a horse, and get the stress of racing out of her system. Since she is only three, and still growing, this time in transitioning her to a new career would be beneficial even if she were a cool customer about racing. She last raced on June 16, so she is fully eligible for the 2021 and 2022 RRP — we would love to see her shine in the 202 RRP! She has a big flowing walk with a nice overstep, and a big trot with great push from behind and reach from the shoulders. She jogged on a loose lead, going at whatever pace her handler set. Her movement is fancy enough to shine in the hunter ring or dressage arena. She is sired by Teuflesberg, who is from the Johannesberg/Henessey sire line and out of a Devil’s Bag mare. Her dam is by Devil HIs Due, which brings in another cross of Devil’s Bag/Halo. We placed another mare by Tueflesberg last fall who has turned out to be a fabulous jumper with great scope and form, and we see the same athletic sport horse potential in this filly. The trainer reports that she is a mild cribber and it is completely controlled with a collar.
