Does anyone have or know of any offspring by the stallion, Gala Harry? I had a mare by him that I adored. She died a few years ago. I'd love to have another of his offspring if I could find one....in particular a broodmare. Thanks for your help.
Just because I'm procrastinating anyways and I love having excuses to stare at TB pedigrees...
Keep in mind that Pedigree Query is all user-input and there are likely gaps in information. Also I could have missed some of what IS there. I don't believe I found any progeny records for sons of his, but I did find records for daughters of his, and I've listed his granddaughters below. Mares born before 1993 were excluded from this list. Overall sort is youngest to oldest, each "paragraph" involves the same Gala Harry daughter.

Additional info (now I'm REALLY procrastinating ):
There are two great-great granddaughters listed on the Jockey Club's TB Connect as needing a home (Bradly's Prospect and Altona Marsh). Their dam's name sounded familiar, so I looked her up and yep! The dam is a granddaughter to Jabula/Green and Gold/Silent Nicoma's sister who was born in 1985, so I didn't list her.

I had a Gala Harry daughter (and met Gala Harry) when I lived in Virginia. She was foaled in 1993, she was not registered and sadly I cannot find the person who bought her at this point, but the issue is, there may be some younger ones out there. Roberta Carr owned him and she moved to Florida with him shortly after these foals (there were others) were born. Maybe you can find her?
Gala Harry was a gorgeous black stallion who only loved Robin, he had been very cruelly treated and she found him starved somewhere in West Virginia, she had owned him in partnership previously and went looking for him.

Bizarrely enough, this mare was bred by Roberta J. Carr, who is the woman I bought my filly from. About Time, I assume that she is the breeder of your mare also?
Here is an article about her mother, her father (which this article did not say) invented and built on their farm, a communications needle that reportedly delivered the first communications to and from the moon. I had forgotten that Robin's name was Roberta and her last name is now Ochoa.
Wow. You guys are amazing. Really. Thank you so much. It's So strange because my mare was also bred to Consul four different times. Had a filly and three colts. I owned two of the three colts but sold them (still keep close tabs on them). They were all VERY nice hunters. I'm going to dig more deeply into the info you've given me. I can't begin to understand how you found all this! Thank you.
