LANDYNONTHEMOON, 2017 16.1h dark bay filly
Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington NY (near Rochester)
Those of you who are aficionados of ideal sport horse breeding will truly appreciate this very pretty, still growing, young lightly raced daughter of Japan — a Medaglia D’Oro son whose offspring aren’t much on the racetrack but are already coveted in the eventing and jumping world. We often get messages from people who have a Japan sired horse , asking us to please let them know when another comes up –well here she is! Landynonthemoon’s photos and video do not do her justice. We photographed her on a cold windy morning just three days after she had raced, and since that race she had just walked the shed row in the barn until she was brought out into the blustery gusts. And to further undermine the conditions for our photo shoot, as soon as her groom brought her out, someone entered a metal shed nearby and started making banging and clanging noises… and from the filly’s perspective (and ours) it was as if that big red metal thing had just turned into a loud scary monster. Despite all this, Landynonthemoon stood quietly and alertly for her groom, but admittedly she could not jog quietly anywhere near the clanging red metal monster…. but the video certainly shows her athleticism! The assistant trainer, who is the contact person, says that since Landyn had been in her barn, she has been very good to handle, quite nice and obedient to ride for morning exercise. and has no bad habits or vices. She also reports that Landyn is sound, with clean legs, and is a good eater. But she is a slow race horse… after only three races, in which she has trailed the field, it is obvious that racing is not where her aptitude lies. If Landyn is anything like the other Japan offspring we have placed over the last couple of years, she will, however, turn out to be a star in sporting disciplines. She is bred to run long on the turf, and thus far Japan’s offspring have immediately taken to dressage, eventing, and jumping disciplines. She represents on of North American buyers’ last chances to get a Japan offspring as a sport horse, since the stallion was exported to South America, where the racing is better suited to his tendency to produce turf horses with stamina. As noted, her sire Japan is by Medaglia D’Oro, who is from the great sport horse sire line of El Prado/Sadler’s Wells, and is out of a Seattle Slew line mare. Landyn’s dam is from Gone West, Unbridled’s Song, and Damascus sire lines. Landyn is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP — and we would love to root for her there next year in numerous disciplines –eventing, jumpers, or dressage come to mind.
