Is anybody at Aqueduct (on Wednesday March 27)? Peek at a horse for me.
The full brother to my 2 year old is running at Aqueduct on next Wednesday, March 27.
Third race. Starter/optional claimer.
Chapman (Stanislavsky-Red Headed Girl).
Stretches out to a mile after winning his debut at 6f on the inner track in December, and his nw2 in February. He was third in starter/optional company a month ago, but 'had an excuse' out of the gate.
If anyone is on-site (or going) I'd sure appreciate you taking a gander at this horse and eyeballing how big he is, how he's put together, how he acts, etc.
His 2yo full sister is here as the 'fall-out' from a blood mare I got to use for sport breeding. She's sweet (but sassy), cute (but pretty well put together), going well (but headed for sport, unless ....!)
I just wanted to hear 'what he looks like' since I can't really tell from the videos and win pix.
The 2yo is small-ish, and a little light, and her neck comes out of her (good) shoulder more like a reining horse instead of an elite athlete.
But, if Chapman is similar, it might make me give long consideration to training on her a little bit and see where we get!
Email me direct BetsyP@crosslink.net or just reply here if anybody's on site/headed to the races that day and can clap an eye on him.
I spoke to the syndicate manager that owns Chapman but he doesn't know squat -- I asked him how big the horse was/about his conformation and he was very very vague!
I just want to hear if Chapman is similar, and has over-stepped both his bloodlines and his conformation to get into relatively nice company. Or if he is a bigger, more racing-athletic sort.
Thanks in advance!!
