I was just repeating what I was told, RA. And, when describing my girl to people, I was told it wasn't uncommon for them to be that wild or wilder. I was also told, when I asked why she was free, that her sire hadn't produced any winners, so Magic wasn't worth bothering with as a racing prospect.
I was told that my girl had a full brother who is 17.1 but I'm not sure how "full" said brother is because I looked around in the online studbook and my girl is the only foal there out of her dam, so if a full sibling exists he is not registered. I say this because I am well aware that the online studbook has consistent records back to about 2003 and the sire is recorded as having been born in '03 so it's not possible for a full sibling to have been born before that date.
Like I said, Magic is actually pretty well handled, but when I first got her she was nearly untouchable. I did not buy her from the stud, I was given her by a man who purchased her as a racing prospect, and was told she was free to a good performance home (unbroke and untried) because her bloodlines were slow. In particular the sire's get.
So I am sorry if I was repeating untrue information but perhaps it would be wiser to take it up with the previous owner because he is who my information has come from.
