Floria is a very pretty and polite young mare who exuded class while patiently posing for her photos. Floria has been a good earner on the track and has made it abundantly clear to her connections that she prefers the lovely grass under her feet and none of that dirt stuff, thank you very much. As her handler said, once she ran on turf, including winning an allowance heat on the turf at Suffolk Downs, she has not wanted to step foot on a dirt track. Alas, Finger Lakes still only has a dirt track and it is getting too difficult and expensive to ship her to turf or synthetic tracks for her racing efforts. When we approached her stall Floria was tied loosely at the front of her stall and her handler explained that, during the hectic morning bustle, Floria will walk her stall. Once all the hubbub has subsided she is untied and is fine for the rest of the day and evening. Floria is a well handled little mare and her handler explains that she is just about perfect about everything. She cross ties, jumps on a trailer, ships well and has great ground manners for everyone from her groom to her farrier to her vet. Floria has been a good earner on the track with 5 wins, 3 seconds and 1 third out of 38 starts. Floria turns out well with other horses and is a lovely, sweet girl who would love nothing more than to be snuggled and fussed with. Boys at Toscanova is by Officer, from the Relaunch/In Reality sire line that has produced many good jumpers who have excelled as sport horses. Floria Tosca’s dam is by the great Dynaformer, from the Roberto sire line. Dynaformer is well known as a sire of great jumpers who have excelled in eventing, steeplechasing, and fox hunting. Floria’s dam and granddam are stakes placed winners, so there is also good broodmare potential in this lovely mare.
