Located on a farm in Shortsville NY, very close to the Finger Lakes Race Track.
This big grey mare doesn’t look as spiffed up as the fit racehorses we usually list because she has spent the last few years being a broodmare. She has had some foals who are winners on the track, including one that sold for $60,000 as a yearling. Her current owner, who is also a trainer at Finger Lakes, bought her in foal to a young Kentucky stallion last fall, but that foal died. He is too busy to keep her for breeding, and he would like to find her an excellent home either as a broodmare, or as a riding horse. He has already started riding her at his farm, and he reports that she has been gentle and quiet, and hasn’t forgotten riding cues. The RRP has just announced a new “retired broodmare division,” and she is PERFECT for that and fits the eligibility criteria! Pure of Spirit was a good racehorse, with 2 wins and 5 additional top 3 finishes in a 10 race career, winning at the allowance level on the turf at the top level NY and Florida tracks, and earning over $100,000. If you want to see what she looked like when she was a dark steel grey fit and winning race horse, click on her pedigree query link below and then click on the photo icon there. Although she is out of shape, we could see that Pure of Spirit has correct conformation with solid bone. There wasn’t much space to jog her on the farm where she lives, but we could see that she is a pretty mover, light, with good hind end push. We watched the videos of her winning races to get a better assessment of her movement, and she had a big strided fluid and efficient gallop and a big light flat kneed trot. She has ideal sport horse breeding. Her sire is Purim, who is by Dynaformer out of a Lord at War mare. Her dam is by Silver Ghost, who is a Halo grandson, and is out of a Pleasant Colony mare (the His Majesty/Ribot sire line). You could go in many directions with Pure of Spirit — breeding to race, breeding for sport/jumping disciplines, or enjoying her for riding. She has many good years left to give.
References will be required, and she will go with a contract to ensure her future is in good hands at all times.
