A barn favorite, After Alpha is reported to be a complete sweetheart, much loved by her owner and trainer. She’s easy going and sweet to handle, reported as sound, and with great feet and no vices. She can be a strong galloper on the track, and prefers a rider with soft hands. She displayed beautiful movement for her jog video, with great push from behind, and a light and lofty step that led us to think she could be a great dressage or eventing prospect for a smaller stature rider or kid working with a trainer. And her sire, Alpha, has produced some horses who are fantastic scopey and brave jumpers — our volunteers know of some succeeding at rated hunter shows and events. With her smaller build and athleticism, After Alpha is also an excellent polo prospect. After Alpha has won two of her 8 starts this year, but now that she has to face tougher competition, she’s not as successful, so her trainer knows it is best to let her find a new discipline. She is by Alpha, a sone of Bernardini from the AP Indy line. Her dam is a granddaughter of Unridled’s Song and Bernardini. The inbreeding to Bernardini is also a good sign of her potential for dressage and eventing, since he has sired many horses succeeding in those endeavors.
