Thankfully,, she has had great care throughout and got checked out right away. A complete tear of that ligament can be very very bad. I am sure she will enjoy her new career as a broodmare and transition in a classy way. Best of luck to her, her trainer, and owners as they move forward with her rest and rehab from the injury.
... and she is to be sold too. Which I find odd considering Porter isn't exactly a 2-horse operation. You'd think he doesn't need the money and could very easily book a stud with her and have her cared for under his ownership. You can bet that George Strawbridge Jr. would be elated with the almost never heard of feat of producing a homebred out of a HOY mare
Porter told the Blood-Horse Monday that the 5-year-old daughter of Saint Liam would either be sold privately or go through the sales ring this fall.
“I have a good ballpark figure (in mind) of what she’s worth,” Porter said. “We’ll have to see if someone wants to buy her before she goes through a sale so that they don’t have to go through a bidding war. If two of us can get together, we will; if we don’t, she’ll go through a sale.”
I don't think Porter is much interested in breeding - he's much more interested in racing. He's kept a very few to breed, but most of them he sells on after their racing careers are over. He sold Round Pond too a few years ago, and also Hard Spun and Rockport Harbor.
