My dad is a Farrier and he shoes Racehorses for some of the biggest owners, trainers, and pinhookers in FL and SC. One of the leading Trainer of 2yr olds in the country MURRAY SMITH had a gorgeous filly that she bought as a yearling at the OBS Mixed October Sale in Ocala, FL for $30,000 but she never made it to the races or any of 2yr old in-training sales. We were at the farm one day and Murray was in a really good mood and decided to give her to me. I have had her about a year and a half now and she has come a long way I have began roping off her and am hoping to have her ready to show in another year. Tell me what you think :)
When I was a kid I used to clean stalls and walk the race horses here in Arizona. Some of the horses had really interesting personalities, almost like an ego. They all were very smart. Anyways there was this ten year old Thoroughbred that they guy I worked kept around as a pony horse I became friends with him. Even at his age he was very competitive and If I had him in the round pen I would run and he would make it a point just to run a little faster and snort and shake his head.
The woman that gave her to me is one of the leading trainers in the United States, and I was at the Farm oneday when my dad was shoeing her and I had not seen her since she was a yearling and didn't even recognize her but I fell in love with that horse, and I have had hundreds of different horses in my life and I never get that feeling but there was somthing about her, and my dad said to ask Murray what she was going to do with the filly and she said she wanted to give her away and said I could have her if I wanted. I personally don't like mares but I couldn't pass up the oppertunity. She is really well behaved and has a wonderful personality she is not marey acting and she is living with 8 geldings.
