Located on a farm in Clifton Springs NY near the Finger Lakes Race Track
That Tale is a very sweet and sensible young NY bred filly who is rapidly growing — she is almost 15.3 now and will likely top out at over 16h — the farm owner says she has already grown almost two inches since she arrived at his farm in early June. She was doing speed work for the Ocala two year olds in training sale earlier this spring when her ankle got sore; they took x-rays and there was a very small chip on the sesamoid, not in the joint. So she was withdrawn from the sale, and sent back to Western NY to a farm near the Finger Lakes Race Track. After a couple of months on the farm, her legs have stayed cold and tight, and the farm owner says she enjoys running around in the field and has never shown any signs of unsoundness or soreness or heat. This suggests that she has great potential to be fine for most disciplines – horses with small ankle chips can have very successful competitive careers including in lower level jumping. While there was no place at the farm to get an outdoor jog video, we were able to get a video of That Tale trotting in a small indoor arena, and she showed very nice movement, with a big stride, and a flat kneed trot with good reach from her shoulders. The farm owner says she is great to work with and handle, very well behaved, and a pleasure to have around. That Tale is by Forty Tales, who is a son of Tale of the Cat out of a Forty Niner mare. Her dam is I Do That, a daughter of Wheelaway, who is by Unbridled. That Tale is offered at a bargain price, but a very good home is essential and references will be required. Don’t pass on this very nice filly who has a lot of potential just because she has a minor issue!
Price: $750 negotiable to an approved home with references
