Adorable Rainbow in her rainbow halter has won her trainer’s heart, but she is looking towards the upcoming end of the meet and realizes that it would be best if Rainbow moves on from racing. The owner/trainer claimed Rainbow earlier this summer and placed her into higher class races where she wasn’t competitive, so she asked us to list her adored filly. But then just a few days after her photo session, Rainbow was entered into a racing level at which she is competitive, and she won! But then, unfortunately, in a race on October 26, she came back sore in her knee, and has been diagnosed with chips in a knee. X-rays are available. The trainer reports that the vet recommends approximately three months of stall rest to let the knee heal, and then Rainbow should be suitable for lower level activities, pleasure and trail riding, and flat work. Rainbow is so pretty and flashy with her nearly black coat and chrome, and her owner/trainer reports that she is very sweet and great to work with and has no vices. She also says that Rainbow is great to ride and does what she is asked. For her jog video she showed even flat kneed movement. Her trainer thinks the filly could be a great all around horse for someone who wants to have fun with a loveable horse. Maybe A Rainbow has an excellent sport horse pedigree. She is by Soaring Empire, who is by Empire Maker out of an AP Indy mare. Her dam is by Include, from Broad Brush/Stop the Music/Halo lines, and is out of an Honor and Glory mare form the Relaunch/In Reality line. In our experience, these sire lines have produced good brained ammy friendly horses with jumping aptitude. Thus, a sport horse broodmare is also an option for Maybe a Rainbow.
Price: $1500 negotiable to excellent approved home.
