Earlier in the meet we listed (and very quickly sold) two fabulous moving youngsters named Gilded Feather and Sassy Talker. Well, their mother, Sassybrat is an equally impressive mover! Sassybrat earned over $70,000 in her career with 19 in the money finishes out of her 41 starts. She retired sound and clean legged and went on to have a few foals. She’s been living the good life at her trainer/owner/breeder’s farm. Unfortunately, the owner is facing serious health issues in his family and needs to downsize his herd. Sassybrat has so many more years left for a second career! While with her huge, correct build and fancy movement we think she would be a great in a sporting discipline with a refresher course, she would also be a good broodmare. She seems to throw large, correct, fabulous moving foals even with different sires (Gilded Feather and Sassy Talker are two examples). We think she would be easy to get going again. She seems to have an easy going and very intelligent demeanor. She’s let down and her body and brain are ready to go. Her trainer reports she is an easy keeper and low maintenance. She is great with turnout, is not currently wearing shoes, and has no vices. His owner is very attached to this family pet and references will be checked. We took pictures while she was happily eating in the field, so we did not get a video. We did see her trot and canter around and admired what a gorgeous mover she is. Her trainer may be able to text a video to serious parties, but we think she is well worth a trip to come appreciate in person! She is a great option for the shopper on a budget looking for either a competitive mount or a best friend pleasure horse.
