Located at the Finger Lakes Race Track in Farmington, NY (near Rochester, NY). This lucky girl has been with her current connections over 5 years, including some of her most successful race seasons. Trapper Jane is retiring after 58 starts with 10 wins, 8 seconds, and 12 thirds, which have earned over $109,000. This is a testament to her big heart, intelligence, and durability on the track. They report she is super quiet to handle and good to ride. When we observed her on this cold, wet day, she stood perfectly still for her photos without moving a foot out of place. She walked and jogged very politely on a loose lead without a chain, and she showed a nice flowing walk and a cute even trot. They report this is her typical demeanor, always very levelheaded and wise. Her connections report that the best of homes is an absolute must for this girl. They do not want her going to someone who plans on flipping her and would love to see her going with someone who really wants to bond with a horse and have her long term. We think that Jane would be an ideal partner for a teen working with a trainer, who wants to do a bit of everything — hunter shows, hunter paces, trails, perhaps some low level eventing. Her track connections care deeply about Jane, and they would love to receive updates on how she is doing in her second career. They report they have not had soundness issues with her, but she is retiring with some old, set osselets. She has been wintered every year at the farm and is great in turnout with a group of mares. She does crib mildly at feedtime. She does not wear a collar to correct this as her trainer reports it is only at feedings and is not destructive. Trapper Jane is sired by Trappe Shot, who is a son of Tapit out of a Private Account mare. We have placed some Trappe Shot offspring who are very successful show hunters, dressage horses, and eventers or jumpers. Jane’s dam also brings good sport horse lines into the equation. Her dam is by Meadowlake, who is from the Hold Your Peace branch of the Prince John sire line, and her dam is out of a mare from the His Majesty sire line. This lovely girl is truly a barn “pet” who will be difficult to part with. Her trainer will tell you anything you would want to know about her. She comes from a shed rowof excellent caretakers and connections that feel strongly about responsible thoroughbred rehoming, so references will be checked. She would be a great RRP prospect for 2022!
