If shiny dapples earned any awards, Gabrilicious would surely be in line for one. What a pretty, classy mare! She stood quietly and patiently while we snapped her pictures and impressed us as a friendly and dignified bay beauty. She also showed very nice movement at the trot, with suspension and a flat kneed reach. With 62 lifetime starts, 7 wins, 6 seconds and 14 thirds, she has earned a retirement from racing. Last year, Gabrilicious got a a small chip, not in the joint, in her left knee. Xrays were taken and are available for review. The vet said that with a few weeks rest she would be fine for racing or any other discipline her owner/trainer properly and carefully rehabbed her, and she came back to the races this year, and has been sound an earned another placing. Although she is hardy and happy and racing, her owner/trainer knows it is time to let her move on to a new career. She is a friendly and intelligent mare, well behaved and good to handle, who likes people and has no vices. She has deeply endeared herself to her owner/trainer, and they want to find her an excellent caring great new home. In addition to her potential for many new disciplines, Gabrilicious could also make an excellent sport horse or racing broodmare. She is by Utopia, whose offspring we have placed into show hunter and eventing homes where they are succeeding and are known for having great brains and temperaments. Her dam Just Gabi is a daughter of Devil His Due, who is also known as an excellent sire of show hunters and eventers, durable horses with good movement and great brains. Gabrilicious is a half sister to a NY stakes winner, and her second dam is also a stakes producer. Her first, second, and third dams were hickory as racehorses, with lots of starts and lots of wins.
