This stunning big mare had our volunteers drooling and wishing we had our checkbooks with us. She’s the whole package — looks, size and substance, kind temperament, sound, beautiful mover. Her trainer says she is good to groom and work with, and we got to see that for ourselves as she brushed Speed Talks to get her ready for her photos, not even bothering to tie her, and the mare just sweetly enjoyed being brushed. Speed Talks won her most recent race, but her trainer feels that she’s not going to be competitive in the higher level races they aim for, so they are letting her go out a winner from the racing world… and we are confident that she is going to be a winner many times over in whatever new discipline you choose for her. The trainer told us that Speed Talks has never had any soundness issues, and that she has a light mouth and exercise riders say she is very nice to ride. We admired her solid bone, nice topline, huge shoulder, deep heart girth, and strong hind end. For her video she showed a flowing overstep at the walk, and a lovely light trot with good push from behind. Speed Talks has been a competitive racehorse full of heart, accumulating 5 wins, 5 seconds, and 3 thirds in 24 starts. Her sire is Afleet Express, a son of Afleet Alex. Afleet Alex offspring are known for kind temperaments and good movement, and we know of several who have successfully transitioned to success as show hunters, and eventers. Her dam, Unbridled Truth, is by Yes It’s True out of an Unbridled’s Song mare. Yes It’s True is from the Raja Baba sire line that so many people covet. If you are seriously interested in this exceptional sport horse prospect, we think you should be speedy in talking to the trainer, before our volunteers find our checkbooks!
