Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
We saw this pretty, athletic looking young daughter of Catienus just a few days after she had raced, and she moved with lightness and spring, showing none of the post-race stiffness that many horses display. She has a kind eye, alert expression, and a solid bodied compact build. Her legs are very clean, and her trainer says she is very sound with no issues and no vices. He says she is very kind and good to work with. But she just is not a racehorse — she has had 12 races, and has never finished better than fourth. She started her racing career at the top level NYRA Belmont/Aqueduct circuit, and her recent transition to the lighter competition at Finger Lakes has not led to more success. Ferncourt showed a flowing walk with good reach, and a light spring to her jog. She had to jog for us right next to some horses on a walking machine, and they started acting up as she trotted towards them, which got her a bit excited, but she quickly came back to her trainer, showing her responsiveness. We have placed several offspring of her sire Catienus who have gone on to excel in new careers involving jumping — one as a to show hunter on the big A circuit, and others as successful eventers. Her dam is a daughter of Pulpit, who is a son of AP Indy, and her damsire is Danehill, form the Danzig line. This is an excellent sport horse pedigree. Fercnourt has unlimited potential for any sporting discipline, from H/J to eventing, and with her compact build, light quickness on her feet, and Storm Cat sire line, we can also see her as an excellent polo prospect. She is offered at quite the bargain price for a young sound filly with so much potential.
Price: $1,000 negotiable
