Located at Finger Lakes racetrack in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY).
This is one drool-worthy, absolutely GORGEOUS gray girl! We were floored by how stunning Stabilize is to see in person as pictures (even the beautiful ones we took) do not do her justice. Her coat has unique dapples set with great contrast. It is one of the prettiest dapple-gray coats that any of us have ever seen- the dapple pattern appears as giant snowflakes on her coat. And even better, we were told her personality and manners are just as lovely as her coat color; she’s described as being easy to work with and ride, very friendly, good in her stall with no vices, easy to groom, and sound. A truly beautiful mare in both personality and looks!
And that’s what we observed- a sweet, quiet, and relaxed mare who stood patiently and posed professionally during her photoshoot. She has a refined appearance with a pretty, classic, feminine head and a long, elegantly arched neck. She’s well balanced with a wide chest and powerful, but finely muscled hindquarters. We did note some rounding on her RF ankle but were told that she’s raced on it and that it has not bothered her; when we felt her legs, we did not feel any heat there. During her video, we noted a relaxed, swinging walk, and detected cute movement at the trot with suspension and engagement. This pretty mare is approaching war-horse status with a very impressive record of 41-9-4-10 and over $156K in earnings. Her consistent record speaks volumes about her durability, heart, athleticism, and work ethic. She’s paid her dues at the track and now it is time for her to be a star in a new career. We could see her excelling in many different disciplines.
Stabilize is by Central Banker (Gone West/ Halo lines) out of a Silver Charm mare. Her lineage indicates that she would have a good brain and be a straight-forward, ammy-friendly restart which is exactly what we expect given her quiet and professional demeanor.
This (Thanksgiving week) is the last week of racing and horses will soon have to vacate the track barns. We were not told where Stabilize would be moved after FL closes for the season- and whether that will be in the local area or not. So if she’s on your Christmas list, it might be a good idea to immediately schedule a visit to do a little early holiday shopping.
Price: $8,000 neg.
