This black beauty is build like a tank of a QH, and will surely take up a lot of leg, so do not let her smaller height at the withers deter you. She is very solid boned and nicely put together, and she was perfectly behaved for her photo session. She showed lovely movement for her jog video, with a light balanced cadence, and this was despite missing a shoe and being in serious need of some farrier attention. We could not get a lot of information about her due to language barriers, but when we asked if she was sound or had any vices, the answer was an easy to understand “no problemo!” She does have old pin firing marks on her shins, but this is purely cosmetic. The friend of the trainer who translated for us explained that More than Crafty was fine, and a good girl, but the owner just wants to get out of owning race horses, so it is time to find her a new career. We think that career could be in any direction. She is a pretty enough mover for the hunter ring or for dressage, and she has the build and stature for western pleasure or barrels. She is also very well bred, so breeders should give her serious consideration. She is by top sire More than Ready, out of a stakes placed dam. Her second dam is a stakes winner and graded stakes placed, and a black type producer who has a Grade 1 stakes placed daughter who sold for $425,000 and is a winning producer in Australia.
