IOVA, 2018 16.1h chestnut mare

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

Looking for a horse with great potential for eventing or jumpers? Iova is your girl!  Her connections describe her as a very sweet horse who loves attention and peppermints, but also loves to go, loves to have a job, is athletic, and would in their view make an awesome cross country horse or jumper. Iova is described as sound, and good to handle. We watched her get groomed without being tied, while she also ate her lunch — most on track horses would not have been so calm and agreeable about this!  We were also told that Iova has been around kids, dogs, goats and enjoys the activity and takes it all in stride.  She has 2 wins in 36 starts, with 18 additional top three finishes and nearly $100,000 in earnings. Although she has 4 placings in 7 starts this year her connections feel that more wins in tougher competition will be hard for her, so they would like to find her a new career where her forward enthusiasm will help her succeed. Iova was very well behaved for her jog video, and showed off a nice overstep at the walk and beautiful movement at the trot with a light loft and reach to her step. Iova has an excellent pedigree for sport horse disciplines. Her sire Lea is from Giant’s Causeway and Galileo lines. Her dam Stroll By is by Stroll, a son of Pulpit (AP Indy), and she is from one of the best female families in the TB stud book, replete with stars on the track and in breeding. Iova’s 4th dam is a full sister to the great Round Table — a name that sport horse disciplines love to see in pedigrees.  

Price:  $2,000 negotiable
