Too Many Tales, 2016 16.1h+ bay mare
Located on a farm in Clifton Springs, NY near the Finger Lakes Race Track
This pretty sweetheart mare with flashy chrome is an excellent sport horse prospect. She last raced at the end of October 2020, is fully let down on a farm, ready to start her new career, and eligible for the 2021 and 2022 RRP Makeover. Lightly raced, with one win and 6 in the money finishes in 12 starts, she is ready to move on to a new career because her owner has decided to go in a different direction with his initiatives. Her trainer — a first class horsewoman for whom we have proudly listed many top quality horses over the years — says that Too Many Tales has always been sound with no issues, and that she has a great temperament and is a sweetheart that loves people and attention. We got to see these qualities for ourselves, as we watched her stand politely to be groomed in her stall, and soak up our attention, pats, and peppermints as she stood for her photo session. The trainer says that exercise riders raved about how smooth and straightforward Too Many Tales is to ride, always well behaved and responsive. We think she could be ammy friendly if you are working with a trainer who can help you restart a horse off the track. She has a very strong sloping shoulder and strong hind end, with good bone and very clean legs. She does have very prominent high withers so you will have to insure good saddle and blanket fit. Both the trainer and the farm owner said that she loves turnout, and gets along in a mixed group and doesn’t care whether she is turned out with mares or geldings. Too Many Tales had lost a front shoe and bruised her foot a few days before we saw her, and even though the farrier had just put the shoe back on, she was still a bit foot sore. She is by Forty Tales, who is by Tale of the Cat out of a Forty Niner mare. Her dam is by Alydeed, who is from Nijinsky and Alydar lines.
