Pay no attention to that rather pronounced lordosis! This mare has been the real deal on racetracks up and down the eastern seaboard. She only raced twice at Finger Lakes after a year off and has not returned to her winning ways, but, after looking her up on Equibase we also note that she is very well bred. Her sire is Eskendereya, a son of Giant’s Causeway, who is also sire of the superstar sprinter Mitole, a candidate for this years HOTY. Mitole just easily won another Grade 2 Stake at Saratoga in August. Her dam is by War Chant, a son of Danzig out of a champion race mare, Hollywood Wildcat. Loyal Heart’s second dam is Wavering Girl, who was a Canadian champion and also a Grade 1 stakes producer. Her third dam, Battle Creek Girl, is a superstar broodmare, multiple graded stakes producer. In other words, Loyal Heart is by a top sire from the Giant’s Causeway line, and from a very rich stakes producing and winning female family. Along with her solid race record, she has excellent broodmare potential. As for her demeanor, she had a very quiet, been-there-done-that presence, which is not surprising considering the travelling she has done throughout her career. She also showed the nice movement of a classy, well bred animal with no signs of unsoundness. Language was a barrier with her handler but please note that her contact person, while she may not have much information about this specific horse, can get information for you.
