FInger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds 2012 Trainer Listings
We are now officially "back at the track" for the 2012 Finger Lakes season -- and we already have our first new listing. Futile Attempt, a big sound unraced mare, who is a great sport horse prospect, so let's start getting the word out!
Last weekend SEPowell and I went to Finger Lakes, chatted with many trainers and people in the racing office, got updates on several horses that were still on our listings from last year, and are now ready to go with new listings for this season.
We thought we should start this new thread for the 2012 season, so that you don't have to scroll through all of last year's messages to track your favorites, ask us questions, and get help in adding one of these wonderful OTTBs to your life.
I have cross posted these updates on the status of horses form last season's listings on the Finger Lakes Trainer Listings Rides Again thread, since many will still be checking there before moving to this new 2012 thread.
We found out that some of the horses still on the 2011 listings did in fact find new homes: Why Because ( for polo); Howdyalikethemapples ( a family all purpose horse); Gracious Victory (show prospect); Saint for Joan (racing in Puerto Rico).
Some horses are definitely still available, so if you are interested please call the trainer listed for 2011: Florida Quaker; Taconic Girl; Seneca Chief
Several 2011 listed horses are still in training for racing at Finger Lakes, and are doing well after their winter breaks -- they may be available again later in the racing season. This "still racing" group includes: Truffula; One Classy Lady; Regal Encounter; Montessori; Stack o'Dollars; Private Screening; Too Critical; Titusville; Relatively Ready; Seventeen Love; Group Effort; YNV Me; YesNoWhatever; Six Roses Gone; Two Gendarmes; Pegasus Ajuda.
If you had a favorite from this group, take heart in knowing they are healthy, and it never hurts to let the trainer know you are truly seriously interested!
We couldn't find everybody, so there are other 2011 listed horses we did not get to check on, so if I haven't mentioned one of your favorites, don't despair.
Don't tell Mr. Trevelyan!
Eeek! Made the call about Florida Quaker. We'll see what owner has to say.
