WW: D'funnylady

now that i live close to a crappy track, and have a young horse that came from said
crappy track, i can do some serious stalking. meet opie's half sister!

she's a 3yo and currently his only sibling

she's just as little as opie

sans pony the whole warm up

she broke vertically and was last for most of the 5 furlongs

but she made a mild bid at the finish in her fourth ever start and first one for the year

and then she jogged back and i was like, whoa whoa whoa. what have we here?

how fancy is this thing?

she was so springy, too. that was all her natural gait. she's built really well.

her groom was sweet and kept giving her face scritches in the paddock.
she got a big pat while unsaddling, though he's just shoving her over here lol

what an elegant filly though. she certainly didn't get that block head of opie's.
i'll keep you guys updated on her in case she gets listed with FLF. because someone needs her!

    1. She definitely has a nice feminine head to her as opposed to the block of snoot Opie sports.

  2. She looks like she needs to go be a hunter tomorrow! Hope she's a big loser on the track!

    1. Pretty sure Niko needs a fellow big bodied midget friend. Just saying.

    1. She was cool as a cucumber in the paddock, but she seemed to inherit the claustrophobia for tight places and was kind of a nutter in the gate.

  5. Cute! Cupid has a younger half brother, who is stakes places and earned about $185k (vs. one maiden win and about $12k total for him - little bro got all the running genes!)
