This flashy big beauty is called “Sis” by her owner/trainer. While we were ogling Sis’s uphill build, great shoulder, and athletic build, drooling over her sport horse potential, her trainer told us that after breaking her maiden earlier this summer, lately Sis just doesn’t want to run anymore. In order to determine whether there was a physical reason for this change, she has had the filly scoped, examined by a vet, worked on by a chiropractor and an acupuncturist… all of whom declared her just fine. This is good news for her new career prospects! The trainer says that because Sis is a big and strong filly, she needs an experienced rider to bring out her potential. Sis is described as sound, with a small old osselet that has long been set and causes her no issues. Because the trainer could not move well enough to let Sis trot out, we asked if one of our volunteers could take the lead and jog her, and she said yes. Sis was well behaved, and trotted alongside on a loose lead, showing nice flowing movement with good suspension. We also watched the video of her winning race, and observed a flowing balanced canter back to the winner’s circle. While we thought Sis is a great sport/eventing/jumping prospect just from her physical presence, when we looked at her pedigree we got even more excited about her sport horse potential. There is not a drop of Storm Cat or Mr. Prospector in her pedigree, which is almost unheard of in the modern US thoroughbred. She comes from the Copelan/Tri Jet sire line; Damascus appears close up under both her dam and sire; Alydar, Northern Dancer, Roberto, Ribot through both Graustark and Arts and Letters are just some of the illustrious sires in her pedigree, all known for producing jumpers. Train Sis up the eventing or jumping or dressage levels, or breed her to warmblood jumping stallions… a lot of high end potential here.
