LOFTY REASON, 2017 15.3h bay filly
Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
We can think of many reasons to bring this lovely filly into your life — her flashy good looks and pretty flat kneed huntery movement amongst them. Lightly raced, she has one win in 10 starts, and is ready to move on to a new career sound and clean legged. She has been jostled around at the start in some recent races, which has made her apprehensive and hesitant about the starting gate, and her owner/trainer has decided it would be best for her to find a new career. He also reports that Lofty Reason is much happier on the farm where she can get turnout than she is at the track — all the more reason to let her find a new career. She lasst raced on June 16, so she is fully eligible for the 2021 and 2022 RRP. Her exercise rider, who comes from an eventing and jumping background, is very enthusiastic about this filly’s potential for these disciplines, and with her looks and movement we can also envision her standing out in the show hunter ring. The trainer told us that her dam, No Rhyme or Reason, is now excelling in a jumping program after having three foals (the last of which was Lofty Reason). The trainer reports that this filly is very sound, and has no vices, but can be balky about trailer loading. She has an excellent pedigree for sporting disciplines. Her sire is Soaring Empire, a son of Empire Maker (whi is by Unbridled) who is out of an AP Indy mare. Her dam is by Full Mandate, an AP Indy son out of a Deputy Minister mare, and her dam is out of a mare from the Montbrook/Buckpasser line. Lofty Reason was alert, friendly, and perfectly behaved for her photo session, and showed a flowing walk and a light, flowing flat kneed trot. To see this one in person is to fall in love!
