However, a few things are a bit strange. She's unnamed in the studbook. Rising five year old and was in pretty good condition but as she doesn't have a name she's likely never even been trialled. I looked up her sire and stud fee was about $5000, so obviously someone put some money into this horse, so why wouldn't they even trial her? I know a lot of OTTBs end up at meat auctions when they're too slow, but why send an untried horse? She doesn't lunge or anything, and seems pretty much unbroken, but well handled. No marks, scars, bumps, seems completely sound.
I don't know anything about racing, but what are some of the reasons that this would happen?
Is this a red flag?
