taking our racehorse for the BIG race!
so today we are leaving for saratoga. our filly, cameo gypsy rose, i already there. she arrived yesterday. today we are in our first sire stake race. for those that dont know, the sire stakes are for 2 and 3 yr old horses and they go for big money. today we are going for $40,000. we are soooo excited because this is the first horse we have bred at home who has made it to the sire stakes. the first 2, the stud was not a great match for my mare and they ended up not making it racing, but they are wonderful kids riding horses now. they had amazing temperaments, super sweet. this is the 3rd one we bred was to a really well known stud. shes a powerhouse and all she wants to do is gogogo! we have another one who just turned a year old, to another well known stud and shes looking really good. and we just bred the mare back again to this (the one we are racing today) fillies stud.
im super stoked. my family has waited a long time to have a horse of this caliber.
we have put so much time an energy into these horses and its finally paying off. i hope we win!
