This young filly by the ever popular sire Bustin Stones is an excellent prospect for polo or barrels. Her trainer describes her as quick with good early speed, sound, no vices, and a very nice girl to handle. But Savanna has not been sustaining her early speed in her races since moving into tougher conditions after a victory in the spring, so her trainer thinks it is a good time to let her move on to a new career where her quick speed does not have to be sustained over 3/4 of a mile or longer. The trainer reports that they have scoped Savanna Gal just to make sure that there is no breathing problem that causes her not to sustain her speed, and happily she scoped completely clean — no flap issues, no mucus, no signs of any problems. We assessed Savanna’s height as between 15.2 and 15.3, and since she is three she may grow some more, but we think she will stay in the size range preferred for polo. On the day we photographed Savanna she had just been handwalking since her race 4 days prior, so she was a bit up in the cool fall morning air, but she was very respectful of her handler, while showing light on her feet movement. She has 13 races with one win, and she has already had ten starts this year, which shows her hardiness and durability. Her sire Bustin Stones, by City Zip, was a champion sprinter, and he has proved to be very popular as a sire of barrel racers, since he passes his hardiness and quickness on to his offspring. Savanna’s dam is by Harlan’s Holiday, who is not only the sire of the great Into Mischief, but is also a popular sport horse sire.
