GINNY BABE, 2018 15.3+h bay mare

This homebred daughter of Big Brown out of a Freud mare has the gorgeous lofty movement , uphill build with a strong shoulder and solid bone, and pedigree to excel in eventing or dressage.  Ginny raced only once in 2021, but she has timed workouts this year, so she is fully eligible for the 2024 RRP.  Her owner/trainer/breeder reports that she is completely sound, but raced only that one time for a variety of reasons:  She stepped on a shoe that got yanked off along with some foot in that one race, and she has bad memories of the main racetrack; while she gallops like a dream on the training track, she is reluctant on the main track. Additionally, as someone with just a few horses, her trainer has had difficulty getting regular exercise riders who are available for main track breezes.  And, he is getting out of racing.  For all these reasons, the lovely, athletic, gorgeous moving Ginny Babe is available to be your next star sport horse prospect. The owner/trainer states that she “was the easiest horse he ever broke,” and that Ginny has great stamina and is very smart.  He says that because she is so smart, she will know if a rider is timid and inexperienced, so he thinks she will be best with a confident kind and  experienced rider that Ginny will respect, trust, and can form a true partnership with.  Ginny has clean legs, and her owner/trainer is also a farrier, and he says he completely fixed her foot after the mishap in her one race and that she has no feet issues at all now. Our volunteers loved Ginny as she posed for photos and displayed her well put together athletic physique — but when she walked and jogged off for her video, our jaws really dropped. She has a huge overstep at the walk, and her trot is light, floaty, and shows great engagement from behind.  Ginny is sired by Big Brown, a Danzig grandson who is a very popular sport horse sire.  Her dam, Flirtatious Spring was a durable, hard-knocking successful racehorse, and is sired by Freud. Freud is a full brother to Giant’s Causeway, and may even be a more coveted sport horse sire than his illustrious brother.
