If you had a High Brow Cat you stand a good chance but a Mr Dual Pep, not so much. A trainer friend of mine suggests selling her as a package because you have no idea what the foal will be like.

Try Triangle Sales Co in OK. Talk to Suzzy Reed.

BTW. What is happening to her now? What kind of care is she getting?

This is my thinking as well. The foal may turn out to be a fugly conformational nightmare (not really likely, but dang sure possible). Plus, you have the added risk and cost of potential complications during foaling and the possibility of losing either mare or foal or both.

I honestly don't know how willing most trainers will be about working for a percentage basis to train/show a prospect that is for sale. I most definitely wouldn't unless it was nearly a guaranteed thing that I would come out ahead. Just for me, 6 months of training would equate to almost $4000 and I am not a world class trainer that could create a winning cutter. For me to make any money at all from a percentage of a sale, that would have to be one hell of a desirable horse that had a world championship under it's belt. If I made a deal for 10%, the horse would have to sell for more than $40,000 just for me to break even.

In the grand scheme of things, I really think you would get a better deal to try to find a market for her and sell her sooner rather than later.

Thanks for the info...
She's still at the ranch in TX. I was out to see her a couple of months ago, and I get regular updates. They seem to be taking great care of her. She currently has a colt at her side from the same stallion. His confirmation looks pretty good to me...but like I said, I'm no expert...
