    Default Well Known Thoroughbreds in GP

    I'm trying to come up with current TBs successful in high level Grand Prixs. Can you help me with a list? Pictures/links would also be great! Thanks in advance.

    Carla Diewert had a TB (I believe he was full TB maybe he was appendix) named Vaquero that she got into the international ring at Spruce for some Grand prix. Not super successful but she got there

    Thomas Edison is a TB who has had some strong grand prix performances in the last few years. He's been ridden by both Charlie and Maggie Jayne.

    He's actually an appendix, he used to be a movie horse. I think her first horse Surfy won a big class in the International ring and was a TB though. I think he was even off the track.

    Was Lisa Jacquin's horse For the Moment (Fred) not an OTTB?

    For the Moment was a TB, and we can name lots of TBs of the past who dominated the Grand Prix. However, the OP wants more current names. I thought I was stretching a little to include one from 5 years ago.

    Yeah, thanks, Dewey. Looking for current (or recent).

    That's very sweet but as much as I love my girl, I don't think I can say we've had success in the high level GPs. We've just done the smaller National Standard ones - and we might have more success in those if I rode better but thank you for thinking of Nikki!

    Maybe not as well known, but up here we had Yavari and Karsh. Yavari was owned by the same folks who bred Popeye K, and there's apparently a young stallion by Yavari out of Popeye K's full sister...

    Isn't Popeye K Dutch?

    Supershorty, I know you've posted pics before, but can you post another of your TB jumping? Good luck with your exam!

    There is an early A Fine Romance TB son showing as Southbound who has competed and won occasionally in GPs in the South and Southwest.
