What happens when “wicked slow” meets “super sweet”? If you are lucky, you get a lovely young sport horse prospect like Third Star, especially when you add in solid body with a great shoulder and lofty movement! The first thing that we noticed about her was her unsual and striking liver chestnut color… in person, it was such a rich, warm shade of finest chocolate (and you can see from her photos that depending on the lighting, it looks like a range of colors, from black to bay to golden). She impressed us with a big, solid build, long/pretty neck, and substantial bone. We agreed that she is exceptionally well filled out for a three-year old filly! She also sports a healthy winter coat, a kind eye, and large expressive ears (which we absolutely fell in love with!). She does have an old splint but we were told that it doesn’t bother her and that she is sound. She was described as being good in her stall, without any stable vices (other than the occasionally making “ugly faces”), and that she trailers well. On the farm, she has only been turned out by herself. She has just one start (which makes her fully RRP eligible), but it was sufficiently lackluster that her owners decided to consider other career options for this big, lovely young filly. For her videos she displayed a swingy big walk, and a light lofty step at the trot. Her sire is First Dude, a son of Stephen Got Even by AP Indy, out of a mare form Smart Strike and Relaunch/In Reality lines. We know eventers, as well as astute resellers to the eventing market, who covet First Dude offspring for their ammy friendly great brains, steadiness and work ethic, movement and jumping ability. Third Star has the typical head of a First Dude offspring, but what they lack in refined chiseled heads they make up for with temperament, brains, and all around wonderfulness. Third Star’s dam, is a stakes placed daughter of Broken Vow out of a Dixieland Band mare. She is a half sister to two stakes winning mares, and one of her half sisters has a two year old racing this year showing great promise for future stakes winning glory. With this pedigree Third Star offers excellent broodmare potential for racing or sport horse breeding. She comes from great track connections (known for their horses having great success at the RRP… hint, hint!) who want to assure the very best of homes for Third Star, so references will be required and checked for the person who is fortunate to be the new owner of this filly.
