Horse of the Month - latest update!
May 12, 2015
Here's the latest update sent to owners of our Horse of the Month, the beautiful Fastnet Rock x Tanya Jean filly...
Well your filly has finished her breaking in program and went to the paddock this week for a well-earned 6 week break.
I could not have been happier with the way she broke in, she handled all stages of the process with ease and showed herself to be a keen worker and a great student. She had no issue accepting the saddle and picked up basic steering with no problems at all.
During her spell I would expect her to have a growth spurt stimulated by the recent excercise and she should continue to grow and fill out steadily over the next 6-9 months. After her spell she will return to work to finish her education program and we will assess how forward she is. I'd doubt that she will be an early runner (before Christmas) as very few of Fastnet Rock's progeny are, but she is from a speed family so we'll let her tell us next time around rather than make long range assumptions.
All in all I'm really happy with the filly and I'm looking forward to her future in the stable. Again, if you have friends that are interested in racing a lovely filly, I couldn't recommend a better option at the moment.
