T J’s Rose Ella, 2016 15.3+h ch filly — now at FLTAP

Located at the Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption program barn on the grounds of Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY
Fans of Frost Giant offspring, here is a lightly raced young and still growing daughter of that coveted sport horse sire who has unlimited potential for any new career — but we think, like so many other Frost Giant offspring, that she will be great in eventing or its component disciplines.  When T J’s Rose Ella grows into her  lanky and athletic frame and fills out, she is going to get much bigger, and will be a stunner.  After 7 starts, it is evident that racing is not the right sport for T J, as she has not come close to hitting the board.  On the day we photographed T J, it had been ten days since she last raced, and in the interim she had done nothing but walk in the shedrow, so she was excited  and on the muscle to be outside where she could see horses training on the nearby track. But she stood politely for photos, and respected her handler and held everything together for a video, although her handler could not let her trot out beyond a slow jog.  But even at the contained jog we saw tantalizing hints of an athletic trot with good hind end engagement and reach from the shoulders. Her  trainer says she is very sound, has no issues, and is a good girl to work with, and we watched her stand quietly for grooming in her stall.  Give this filly some time to grow up, and we think some lucky person is going to have a great sport horse prospect.  Since she is so young, she is best suited for an experienced rider who knows how to bring along young TBs.  She is by Frost Giant, who is a son of Giant’s Causeway out of a Gone West mare.  T J’s dam is by Majestic Warrior, who is a son of AP Indy, and her damsire is Point Given, a son of Thunder Gulch.  One of our volunteers has two OTTBs from these same Thunder Gulch/Gulch lines as T J’s dam, and both of those horses are outstanding jumpers with A show quality form.  T J is offered at an enticing price for such a young sound horse with great sport horse lines and potential.
Price:  TBD
