JustDressageIt - thank you
The original colt is out of an unbroke, unraced, unshown mare that was purported to achieve a mature height of 14.3-15hh as per her owner's email to me, and that dam is also out of an unbroke, unshown, unraced sire
The sire of the original colt is backed and they intend to pursue a show career with him - probably in the hunter ring
There is NOTHING and I mean NOTHING in the original colt's pedigree - top or bottom - that would make any race breeder look at him at all, if it wasnt for the colouring
At least with my crew, Guaranteed Gold was backed and shown (eventing) and he was presented for Canadian Sport Horse approval and did have to fulfill their performance criteria. Through the dam lines, Puchilingui DID race and my Puchi Trap mare (the dam of the Remember My Name colt) also did race and had moderate success with very few starts before I claimed her off her last race
So - just a bit of background on all of them ...
