We were struck by this pretty mare’s alert intelligent expression, and her striking unusual blaze. Shelly is a home bred who has been with her connections since she was born, and she has been a good race horse for them, placing in multiple state bred stakes races in Massachusetts at Suffolk Downs. There are few racing conditions for which she is eligible at Finger Lakes, and her owner/trainer is planning on going back to graduate school, so he would like to find a great new non-racing home for Shelly while she is still sound and with so much potential for new careers. He describes her as very easy to work with, and all around good girl. We admired her nice uphill build and strong shoulder, which speak of great potential for jumping and sport disciplines. When she jogged for her video, we were impressed by her very nice toe flicking movement. Then when we saw that she is a daughter of Stonesider, who is by Giant’s Causeway, we could see why she is such a nice mover… every Stonesider offspring we have seen has been a great mover, and those we have placed are all quickly excelling in new careers including eventing, dressage, and hunter/jumper. This is a quality young mare with great potential, sound and clean legged, at a bargain price!
