ALARRA, 2019 16.1h bay mare

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)

If you are looking for an excellent sport horse prospect, this lovely mare checks all the boxes: very good mover, excellent conformation, sound, great work ethic, and a strong sport horse pedigree.  Alarra has been with her track connections since she was a two year old, so they know her well. The trainer reports that she tries hard and can go all day, and is nice to ride, doing whatever the rider asks. He rides and gallops his horses, so he is giving first hand impressions! Despite being a hard trying mare, Alarra has managed just a single win in 25 starts, but she has lots of seconds and thirds.  Since winning her first race last fall, she has found the tougher racing conditions she has to face this year more challenging, so they want to let her find a new career where she can be more successful. They told us that Alarra loves small animals, both live and stuffed – dogs, goats, cuddle toys.  Alarra is described as generally mellow and good to handle; if other horses around her get worked up, she might react with a hightail, but no bolt or buck or naughty behavior.  We admired Alarra’s  slowing walk and flat kneed trot, as well as she good bone, strong shoulder, and hip anlges – all of which suggest athletic jumping ability.  Her sire, Alpha, a son of Bernardini, has produced several horses who are excelling in eventing and as show hunters, and we can see Alarra following in their hoofprints. Alarra’s dam is by Dixieland Band, another coveted sport horse sire.  Alarra’s first four dams are stakes producers whose daughters are also stakes producers, so there is also good race breeding value here. Alarra is eligible for the 2024 and 2025 RRP.

Price: $3,000
