Andy is a very flashy, chestnut mare with enough class and presence to turn heads wherever she goes! A gorgeous Thoroughbred mare, by Bold and Flashy out of Ascot Hailey. Her lineage also includes Smart Strike (Mr. Prospector), Bold Ruler, and Danzig. Andy only had 12 starts and earned $11,000 in her racing career Andy joined the OA herd in October of 2018 after her racing career ended. She very quickly found her way into our hearts and our herd and has proven to be an exceptional mare.
Andy has gorgeous hunter-style movement, with a natural long and low head carriage, and floaty, straight movement. Being only three, Andy has some maturing to do, both mentally and physically, so her career post-track has been slow to allow her time to blossom. Although Andy isn’t very tall, her presence and kind, yet respectable temperament allow her to grab the attention of everyone.
Andy is a very curious girl, who is always trying to figure out what is asked of her. She takes everything we’ve given her very well, from flapping red Christmas bows, to trail rides through snow, puddles and traffic on the road, she has never faltered and continues to surprise us each day.
Andy’s plan for the 2019 season is working in the hunter hack ring, and over fences in the later of the season. We plan on showing on the Trillium Circuit and entering the Royal Winter Fair Thoroughbred Classic classes, where we are certain she will turn heads.
Keep an eye out for this red-head pocket sized girl on the show circuit next year!
