Oh my, Oh gorgeous…. think of the fun you can have with this sweet mare’s name! Oh is a much loved barn favorite because she is kind, beautiful, and great to work with. She is a homebred, and her owner/breeder wants to find her an excellent home. Oh did not come to the track until last year, and after one race last summer, she had some filling in her left front tendon. They ultrasounded it and found a very small tear, so they stopped on her and completely rehabbed the tendon. Oh came back to the track in March, but after a workout there was a slight filling in the tendon, but she never was lame or sore on it. They decided to be extra careful and stop her race training, and find her a new career. On the day we photographed Oh, she had been out of training for over a month, just walking in the shedrow, so she was a bit excited to be outside, although very respectful of her handler. She showed off nice suspension and balance with a lofty trot. Her handler says that she is a lovely mover, very nice to gallop, with smooth lead changes, and that she has been ridden in an indoor arena as well. Oh also trailers well. Given how slight her tendon injury was, and how carefully it has been managed, Oh should be fine for careers less strenuous than racing. She is pretty enough to excel in the show ring, and her movement suggests that dressage could be a good outlet for her. Oh is by Rule, a son of Roman Ruler, out of a mare by Storm Bird. An excellent home with references is essential for this special and much loved mare.
