SACRED CANYON, 2011 16.3h bay mare

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
Sport horse breeders take note: we think this big attractive and solid bodied mare is an excellent sport horse breeding prospect.  She has a big heart and great work ethic, with 9 wins, and 24 top three finishes in her 48 races, with an impressive $174,000 in earnings.  She has certainly earned a great retirement to a loving home.  She has an old large osselet on a front ankle that she has raced on for several years, but it has started bothering her after she races.  She had raced 5 days before we took her photos, and she was still off at the jog.  Her owner had just pulled her shoes because he had decided to retire her, and she jogged barefoot as well.  He says that she should be fine for flat work and trails and pleasure riding.  He says she is a good girl, and that he can groom her in her stall without tying her and he can also clean out her stall while she stands untied in it. He says she can be a bit aloof with new people until she gets to know you, but once she does she really warms up to you and is a great mare.  She has an impressive uphill build and strong shoulder and good bone — ideal qualities to pass on to offspring. She also has some excellent sport horse and turf stamina sire lines in her pedigree. Her sire El Medwar is a grandson of Gone West and Danehill (Danzig and Ribot lines).  Her dam is by Sky Classic, who is from Nijinsky and Nodouble lines. Secretariat, Northern Dancer, and Princequillo are other illustrious sires in her pedigree.
