If you are looking for a gorgeous filly with a terrific pedigree for breeding either for racing or for sport horses, then Wild North is one you should be very interested in. She is from the first crop of Daredevil, who is a young sire son of the great More than Ready (Halo sire line). Daredevil has already sired a winner of the Preakness and Kentucky Oaks in his first crop to race. Her dam Go Forth North is a graded stakes winner who is sired by North Light, a Danehill son who won the Epsom Derby, and she is out of a Holy Bull mare. Even on a dreary day Wild North’s beauty and uphill conformation stood out, and she stood so politely in the freezing sleet. Her trainer says she is very sweet and friendly — a horse who likes to be friends with people and other horses. She says she has no vices and is good to train and ride. Her legs are clean, and the trainer says that neither she nor the previous trainer have ever had any soundness issues with her. Wild North is obviously durable — she has raced every 7 to 14 days non-stop since the summer of 2020. That’s what they call “dancing every dance” on the track. For her jog video we thought she looked stiff or a bit off — but it may well be that she is body sore. She raced again a few days after our photo session, and galloped home in 4th place and came back fine. We think that she is one who will greatly appreciate a break and a let down period and possibly chiro and massage. We watched the videos of the races she has won — most recently this summer — and we saw a flowing gallop and a lovely trot with nice reach from the shoulders. So this impression makes us think that once she gets a break from racing and gets over being body sore, she is going to one really nice fancy horse.
