Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
Our volunteers fell totally in love with this kind eyed sweetheart — and that was even before we looked up his pedigree and found out that he is by the great sire Awesome Again and out of a mare by the much loved Say Florida Sandy — a sire who was well known for getting great brained, kind, durable and big hearted horses who were coveted in the eventing and fox hunting communities. Sandy is described by his handler as a very sweet and kind horse who is a solid citizen who never does anything wrong — but he does not care for the Finger Lakes racing surface (they claimed him at Aqueduct, and he raced much better on the tougher NY circuit). He has 29 starts with 3 wins, 9 additional top 3 finishes, and over $90,000 in earnings. She says he is sound, and we observed clean legs and good big feet. He has very good solid and balanced conformation, and the most pleasant and kind expression. He jogged very quietly like an obedient puppy on a loose lead, showing nice balanced movement. His handler says that he has been out of training for several weeks, which makes it even more amazing how quiet he was for his jog. She says that he was turned out for the winter at the farm, and that he easily mixed in with the herd as low guy in on the totem pole. He is by Awesome Again, from the Deputy Minister sire line out of a mare from the Blushing Groom line, and his dam is a stakes placed mare by Say Florida Sandy, who is by Personal Flag, a son of Private Account and a Hoist the Flag mare. Sandy’s dam is also from Roberto and Buckpasser lines. In essence, Sandy Lane’s pedigree is a “who’s who” of sires known for getting durable, kind, steady, good jumping sport horses. Sandy is fully eligible for the 2021 RRP and we would love to follow his new career!
