A long time barn favorite, this beautifully conformed solid bodied mare has been a durable, sound, hard knocking race horse, and she surely deserves the very best of new homes where she can put her athletic talents and big heart to a new endeavor. She has won 16 races in her 107 starts, with 54 in the money finishes. Indeed, this year has been one of her most successful racing years, with three wins. Her owner/trainer says she is a nice quiet horse and a sweetheart who always gives her best. Every time we have visited this shed row, we have stopped to hand out with “Smokey” and we have always been struck by her beauty and friendly intelligent personality. And when we photographed her she was very friendly and really enjoyed having her pictures taken, and was curious, alert, and very well behaved for everything we asked. She is well balanced, has a nice shoulder, great feet and her trainer says she is sound with no vices. Indeed, when a horse has held up so well for so many races, with clean legs, and a bright happy attitude, you know you have a durable and very sound horse, with a great brain. Her trainer feels she should transition well to a new career away from the track. This is a very nice horse ready for a new career — please give this mature girl a chance and we think you will be richly rewarded with a loyal friend! In our experience — and in the experience of many others who regularly transition OTTBS to new careers — the more mature horses who are still sound and clean legged after a long racing career are THE BEST! They are sound, durable, have great work ethics, are good to be around, intelligent, and have many more good years to give a new person.
