Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
This pretty mare is described by her trainer as very sweet and friendly, and very easy to handle both on the farm and at the track. She also has a lot of heart and try in her, with 4 wins in 17 starts. There are many reasons she is a trainer favorite. She ran a close second in an allowance race in mid-July, but when she was checked over before being reentered in another race, the trainer and vet noticed some minor swelling in her ankle/suspensory area. They took ultrasounds, which revealed a lesion in the suspensory. The trainer says she is walking and jogging OK on it, and sent us a video. The trainer has informed us that the vet says she can go on small paddock turnout for a couple of months, and then can be turned out in a larger pasture, and with a year off she should be fine for any endeavor. The trainer will share ultrasounds and the vet’s contact information with seriously interested potential buyers.
Itsjustnotyourday has a pretty expression, a sloping shoulder, and a good topline. She is by Bustin Stones out of a mare by Soto. We initially listed this mare and got to see her in person (and give her peppermints) last November, before the owner decided to retain her for racing. In the video from last November she showed off a relaxed walk with good overreach and displayed cute movement with a floaty, airy trot. In video from mid-August sent to us by the trainer, that same nice movement potential can be discerned, although she was a bit fresh from being race fit and then having done nothing but hand walk since her injury was diagnosed.
The trainer wants to assure that her much loved mare goes to only the best of homes that can give her the proper time she needs, and who will cherish her as much as she does. So be prepared with references, if you want it to be your day!
Price: $1500 negotiable to an excellent approved home
