This nearly black, athletic young filly is described by her trainer as “the sweetest TB horse I have ever dealt with in my life.” That is a powerful endorsement indeed! The trainer says that Angela is sound, and we saw clean legs and nice balanced movement, but she says that Angela just hasn’t raced well in her last few starts, seems to be losing interest in racing, and that she is far too nice of a horse, with a great new career ahead of her, to keep pushing her to do something she no longer is excelling at. The trainer, who has a background in hunter/jumpers, thinks that Angela is a perfect prospect for eventing or jumping disciplines, because she is very athletic, has a good forward attitude, and comes from bloodlines that have produced good jumpers. Because Anela has what the trainer desribes as “some good go to her”, she thinks Angela is better suited for a more experienced rider who is looking for a sport horse prospect, rather than a kid. Angela is also well put together, with a deep girth and strong shoulder that suggest jumping ability. She has had 21 starts, with 3 wins, but this year, she has not won in 9 starts. She was perfectly behaved for her photo session on a blustery day that had other horses jumping out of their skin, and she jogged very politely on a loose lead, showing balanced movement with an even cadence and good engagement from behind. Her sire is Mission Impazible, a young son of Unbridled’s Song out of a mare by Hold Your Peace from the Speak John/Prince John sire line. Her dam is by Kafwain, who is a son of Cherokee Run from the Runaway Groom/Blushing Groom sire line. Her second dam is by Copelan. These are excellent sport/jumping lines. Angela’s trainer noted that every offspring of Mission Impazible that she is familiar with has a great brain and is quiet and sensible. He also had some offspring who did very well in this year’s RRP in hunters and jumpers.
