This very pretty and well bred mare dazzled us with her classic, correct, solid conformation, and her in your pocket sweetheart personality. She has been a very good race horse, with 7 wins, and 17 in the money finishes in her 34 starts. In her most recent race in mid-July, she came back sore on a knee that had chips in it (which she had successfully raced on). So now it is time to retire her, and she will need time off to rest her knee. Her owner has not had it x-rayed since the recent race. With her excellent pedigree and beautiful conformation and good race record, we think she is an excellent broodmare prospect, either for racing or for sport. She is by top sire Leroidesanimaux, best known as the sire of Derby winner Animal Kingdom. Her dam is by champion Gulch, who is proving to be a very good broodmare sire. Her second dam is a full sister to Travers winner Corporate Report, and is from the Damascus sire line through his son Private Account. Lots of quality black type in her female family. With the Blushing Groom branch of Nasrullah in her sire line, and the Private Account/Damascus sire line on her dam side, this is a pedigree that has great appeal for sporting disciplines. It also presents many good outcross opportunities to leading sire lines for racing breeding.
The people at the farm near the track where the mare is resting raved about her sweet personality, and attested that she has been a model citizen while on stall rest. Her track connections also state that she is a sweetheart who is great to handle. She is a mild cribber, but it is controlled with a collar. Because of her recent knee injury, we did not ask for a jog video. She walked fine, and showed a flowing big stride. We also watched race videos to assess her movement, and we think she is a lovely mover with a flat kneed, flowing and balanced way of going.
