    Default Opinions on OTTB mare - pedigree + photos included

    16H 6 year old TB mare, registered w/papers. w/t/c under saddle, done small jumps and trail ridden. Prospective career would be eventing. Unraced (I know the history, not suspicious). Clean legged, sound, no vices.

    no video at this point, what I can see is that she has free forward movement, goes "up" as her neck and shoulder set would suggest.

    Can't see the photo. Pedigree is very promising. If you have to have Seattle Slew, Slew O'Gold was, last time I looked, the only Slew son with Upper FEI level eventers.

    Her dam produced Clever Trick, who was a very nice race horse and stallion.

    She isn't without her baggage (ended up in not so good situations) but she was only $500 so I picked her up and so far am VERY glad I did.

    You have to be on the track to be off the track in my opinion. Glad she found you.

    That is true. Track broke, never tattooed. I consider any TB that has to be raised in that situation to have situation baggage... and hers is even worse post breeder.

    Wow. I don't know what to say about that so I won't say anything.

    Laurie, I didn't mean to offend. In my experience the TB's that end up in these situations from racing homes are not from the nicer racing stables. The statement I made did make it seem more general, but I know there are plenty of racing stables that genuinely care about the outcomes of each horse they breed and/or train.

    Default Congrats! I think it was an excellent purchase.

    She is a very nice looking mare indeed. I picked up dozens of lovely mares like yours throughout the past 20 years and had great success with them. I also ended up breeding most of them right away because:
    1) they took a little longer to train to reach higher levels - so they might as well do something productive as well through the process
    2) I did find that carrying a foal matured these mares nicely both mentally and physically.
    3) in several cases I sold the foals after people saw the dam compete
    4) a breeding like this ended up producing my stallion, Lotus T who became the best horse I have ever ridden over a 25-year professional career on two continents and who became the best producing stallion I have ever seen.
