Filly's sire is a stallion called Hartley Spirit (by Danetime), known in the TB industry to throw large, solid foals with good conformation and nice temperaments (known to be easy to handle and break) that mature late (for TB's) and therefore don't run well as 2yo's but are usually handy 3yo's. I'm not looking for a racehorse but what that means is that she's well-bred so could be a nice broodmare later on down the track.
Filly herself is a chestnut with 3 high white socks (not quite stockings) and a star and stripe, expected to mature around 16hh. I will be taking a good look at her feet in particular (am an amateur barefoot trimmer so I know some about hoof structure) and her legs and joints.
Filly's dam is a mare called Veirtry, or something similar (I'm wondering if they mean verity as have found no mares matching any other variation of veirtry on the aus studbook), and IF it's the mare I found called Verity, she's by a stallion called Proven Valour out of a mare called Tallan Fair... I will look into that line further if I have the right horse. (edit, I looked into it anyway, and there's nothing in there that I've heard of)
EDIT; Hartley's Spirit, by Danetime who is by Danehill who is by Danzig who is by Northern Dancer. Impressive sire line.
