Located on a farm in Shortsville, NY near the Finger Lakes Race Track
Hey gorgeous lady! This big, beautiful mare who could easily be a warmblood imposter, has been off the track for a couple of years, and she is lightly restarted with basic flat work. Her owner, who also handles a full racing string with her track trainer husband, had plans to make Hey Lady her own personal dressage and eventing horse, and take her to the RRP. But the realities of full-time work at the track and on the farm with dozens of other horses in race training or breeding have made those plans unrealistic for her, and she realizes that Hey Lady is way too nice a sport horse prospect to just be a pasture pet on their farm. So she is offering her beloved mare, who she has had since she was a yearling, in the hope that Hey Lady will be someone else’s dressage and eventing partner. Hey Lady is a big and forward-thinking mover, so her owner thinks she will be best suited for an experienced rider working with a trainer. The owner raved about what an amazing feeling it is to ride Hey Lady’s “gorgeous trot — big and powerful and floating over the ground.” She says she rides Hey Lady in a loose ring snaffle; while she has primarily done basic flat work with her, she has occasionally introduced cavaletti and small cross rails, and Hey Lady has handled them without batting an eye. Hey Lady is described as a mare who loves to be groomed, who loves her peppermint treats, who is good for everything — the mounting block, the farrier, cross ties, loading and trailering. She is currently barefoot and has good feet. She retired sound from the track after 11 starts, with one win and 7 top three finishes at the allowance and maiden special weight level — so she had some racing class and ability. Her owner reports that she has mild ankle rounding from old small set osselets, and that she was never unsound on them. Hey Lady has an excellent sport horse pedigree. She is by Discreetly Mine, who is by Mineshaft (AP Indy) out of a Private Account mare. Her dam is by Giant’s Causeway.
