  1. I once worked for an operation that had a large Ready To Run draft and while bringing one particular horse out of its box to parade in front of three very influential buyers upon one of them asking "whats this horse by.." when told who the stallion was he said.... "take it straight back to its box." Even tho it was a very nice looking horse and could gallop his reasoning was that ...'he would have great difficulty syndicating a horse by that stallion and wasn't the slightest bit interested"
  2. Another good filly...carries a similar pattern to the one above and sold for big money also.
  3. I think this is a very nice pedigree. The 1st dam's male line, (a great place to start when planning matings ) that of Rainbow Quest connects with the sire of Showcasing's second dam. The 3rd dam's male line that of Mill Reef connects with the sire of Oasis Dream's second dam. Creating a mirror image of line breeding patterns. To my mind ...."the right mare' nailing the stallion 'right were it counts'
  4. Impressive winner of Group Three Rough Habit Plate
