Located at a farm near Finger Lakes Race Track
This striking looking true liver chestnut mare is described by her trainer as a kind and very easy to handle horse; “she’s like an obediant child” he said. Wouldn’t everyone like a truly obediant child! He says she is sound and a “good keeper,” with no vices or issues. We admired her balanced conformation, deep girth and strong sloping shoulder, and her elegant expressive head and kind eye, and we observed clean legs. She almost looks bay, which is the mark of a true liver chestnut. Her trainer says that in the summer when she dapples out she is truly spectacular looking. He is going to Aqueduct in NY for the winter, and he doesn’t think Eden will be competitive at that bigger track, so he wants to try to find her a good new home before he leaves. Secret Eden is lightly raced, with only 18 starts, and 1 win. She had raced on the last day of the Finger Lakes meet on Nov. 27, just two days before we photographed her, and she jogged nicely, with no post race stiffness. She trotted politely on a loose lead and showed cute balanced movement. She is by Utopia, a son of Forty Niner, and her dam is by Salt Lake, who is a son of Deputy Minister. These are good sporting lines, and we think this lovely mare has excellent potential for any new discipline, from hunter/jumpers to eventing or dressage, or western disciplines as well. She is offered at a bargain price in the hope that she will quickly find a new home.
Price: $1,000 negotiable
