Jessica’s Girl, 2017, 15.3 h, bay filly

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). We were completely charmed by this sweet, pretty little filly. Although we could immediately recognize her youth, we were impressed by her body condition and muscling, and how nicely she is filled out for a 2-year-old filly. She has a long, sloping shoulder, pretty neck, muscular hindquarters and is deep and solid throughout her body. Given her age, she’s likely to grow a bit more, but we can already see that she will be a lovely mare.
She was primped and polished to look pretty for her pictures; and she was sweet and well-behaved during her photo shoot. She allowed herself to be positioned easily, and showed off a little personality by wriggling her lip and making everyone laugh. She’s described as being generally good to work around, without any stable vices except that she can be a bit ‘moody’ at times.
For her video, her walk was a nicely forward march with a good overstep. She displayed light, airy and even movement with good suspension during her jog. Even though it was a cool and windy day and she hadn’t been worked, any minor flashes of exuberance were easily contained by her handler.
She has only had one start, back in August, where she made it abundantly clear that she did not want to be a race horse, thank-you very much. Who doesn’t love a girl who knows her own mind? Her last published workout was mid-October. Her people have since decided that she did not display the talent to be a racehorse and would be happier pursuing a different career. She is 2020 RRP eligible.
Jessica’s Girl is by Paynter whose lineage includes several popular sporting sires including Blushing Groom, In Reality, and Seattle Slew. She is out of a mare named Jessica’s Halo who traces back to Hail to Reason through the Halo bloodline. All indicators for a good sport horse prospect. This filly is sound, without any limitations. A blank slate that you can finish in any direction that you’d like to go. So don’t hesitate!
