A race broodmare or sport horse broodmare? Any idea why she didn't race? Two Punch babies tend to be lovely but are prone to have a screw loose.

Either or is fine. Screw loose?? Not this horse....she is the sanest horse I have ever.met. She was my first horse I bought. And she didnt race bc she was hurt in a pasture accident that prevented her from racing but I was able to compete her up to novice eventing,hunters,dressage,and polocrosse! She is now used for beginner lessons. She is something special! Good brain

I am not impressed with her for racing but am happy to hear you found a good one. I only had one Two Punch but she was nuttier than a fruitcake. In fact I still have the stupid goat I got to attempt to slow down her stall galloping. When that didn't cut it I borrowed a pony from a rescue and put her in the stall with my mare. We called the pony Speed Bump!

The names in a pedigree are not that important. It's what the female family has produced in the way of black type horses that matters.

If the economy was still good, your mare would have been worth something in a state breeding program. She's from a long line of producers and female blacktype winners. A really nice cross-section of what MD breeding used to be!

Unfortunately, while her dam was a very successful racehorse, she didn't reproduce herself. In the current market, that makes her value as a racing broodmare about nil.

On a side note, I'm pretty sure your mare was race-trained because I'm pretty sure I ran across her somewhere...

And I'll agree with Laurie, some of the nuttiest horses I've ever met are Two Punches, but not all of them!

She was indeed race trained! Just never made it to an actual race... Owners decided not to waste their money,lol
