“Scout” is another quality offering from a quality owner/trainer who takes outstanding care of his horses, represents them honestly and well, and cares deeply about making a great match into the best of new homes. This elegant filly with a beautiful feminine head is described as sound, kind, big hearted, good to handle and good to ride. She is a very nice mover, light, balanced, with reach and that toe pointing trot that should do well in the hunter ring. Her trainer says she is sound, and she is and running well this year. But she has also won enough that she is running out of race conditions, so her trainer wants to find her a great new home where she can flourish in a new career. Last year, she did incur a small crack in a cannon bone, a non-displaced condylar fracture. She had surgical treatment, and everything healed just fine, and she has come back to race very well this year, with 2 wins and 5 in the money finishes out of 8 starts. Extensive research by the renowned Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital demonstrates that over 98% of horses with non-displaced condylar fractures who have surgery not only return to racing at the same competitive level as before the injury, but they can also go on to successfully perform in other disciplines, including higher level eventing and jumping. Scout has a nice pedigree for sporting disciplines. Her sire A.P. Warrior is by A.P Indy out of a Quiet American mare, which is the Fappiano line. Her dam is a Danzig granddaughter with Tom Rolfe, Spectacular Bid, and Buckpasser in her pedigree. A very good home is essential for the beautiful Hoosier Scout.
