Located on a farm in Avon NY (half hour from the track)
What a gorgeous mare — the photos hardly do her justice. Her trainer says she’s as sweet as she is pretty. She describes Kreesa as having “the best disposition, a lovebug who loves her treats.” She says she is easy to groom and handle, has no vices, and is up to date on all vaccinations. And to make the whole package even more enticing, Kreesa has a stellar sport horse pedigree, and showed beautiful movement for her jog video, with a flowing walk and great reach to her flat kneed trot that should earn ribbons in the hunter ring. Earlier in her racing career, Kreesa showed the class to win and compete well at the maiden special/allowance level at Saratoga and Belmont, running on the turf. She has won over $100,000 in only 16 starts. At the end of the 2021 racing season, her owner/breeders decided to retire her and found her a home that didn’t work out. So they sent her to a farm, where she hung out for almost a year and a half. Then they decided to try to race her again this year, since she was sound, and sent her to Finger Lakes. But after getting a taste of the farm life, Kreesa has made it clear in her four races this year that she just doesn’t want any part of the racing game anymore. But these four starts this year make her fully eligible for the 2024 RRP! We photographed her a week after her last race, which was at Saratoga. She is sired by Wrote, a Sadler’s Wells grandson out of a Danig line mare. Some of the leading OTTB resellers who focus on the eventing market covet Wrote offspring, who are known for great brains, athleticism and jumping ability. Her dam, Lady Kreesa, is by Stonesider, a son of Giant’s Causeway, who is also a popular sport horse sire.
