Calling all Frost Giant fans! This beautiful, dappled, leggy daughter of the late sire coveted by eventers is from his penultimate crop and thus is one of the last few of Frost Giant’s offspring that will be available. So if you have been looking for a Frost Giant mare for sport horse breeding or for enjoying their gutsy sport horse aptitude, Boo Ba La is your ooh-la-la! Boo Ba Lah has an uphill build and a deep heart girth, ideal conformation traits for sporting endeavors. We saw her three days after her last race, and her trainer reports that she came out of that race “a little ouchy” on an ankle, due to what they think might be an osselet. When her current trainer got her last year, they fully x-rayed her ankles and the x-rays were clean. She has been racing well — indeed, she just missed winning in her recent race. But the trainer thinks she would benefit from a career a bit less strenuous than racing. With the usual letdown period form the track, they think she ought to have no limitations for a new career in any discipline at the lower levels (which is what most of us do anyway, let’s be honest!). Boo Ba La is described as a “happy” horse, who will prefer a rider who understands her happy and forward attitude and lets her do her thing. The trainer reports that she was turned out at their farm last winter, and was good in turn out and enjoyed farm life. Boo Ba La has 12 starts, with 2 wins, and three additional top three finishes. She an ideal sport horse pedigree. Her sire is Frost Giant, a son of Giant’s Causeway, and a well-deserved favorite sire amongst eventers. Her dam, Bobity Boo, is by Pico Central, a son of Spend a Buck. Her Buckpasser/Roberto, Hoist the Flag/Ribot bloodlines are the gold standard for durable Tb sport horse lines.
