Exploding Lucy is a 2016, 16’2 hand chestnut filly who is still growing. This girl is the complete package. Lucy is easy to ride and also has perfect manners around the barn. She is from a great family known for its gentle laid-back disposition and trainability. This girl is really sweet and special.
Lucy has only raced once, through no fault of her own. Her owner/trainer has too many horses from other owners to train so his own horses sometimes get shuffled to the back of the training roster. There are a limited number of stalls that each trainer gets at the track. You fill the stalls with first with horses of the owners who are paying for training and if you have room for more, you bring in the horses you own. Because of this, Lucy did not get the time deserved for training at the track – her trainer is that good.
Lucy is clean legged and vice free. She ships quietly and stands for the blacksmith. She has been well started – a clean slate with no bad habits or racing injuries. This girl commands attention when just walking around the shedrow. She will continue to grow and fill out and should look like a warmblood when done growing. Get the warmblood look with the fabulous thoroughbred movement and intelligence.
This filly is from our favorite sire, Western Pride. He is a multiple stakes winner. You might remember two other Western Pride babies who were in training at Bits & Bytes Farm for their new owners in the last year –Made In Her Image (‘Mae’) and Justnamehimeddie (‘Eddie’). Exploding Lucy and Justnamehimeddie also share the same dam so they are full siblings!
Both ‘Eddie’ and ‘Mae’ were quiet from the moment they came off-the-track. You can see photos and videos of them all over our Facebook page and websites. We recently went trail riding with ‘Eddie’ and Clanton’s Dancer (‘Clancy’) at Steadfast Farm where they board with their husband and wife owners – Tom and Jennifer Hartig. ‘Mae’ just recently moved home to be with her mom in Nantucket, MA. Boy, do we miss our ‘Marvelous Missy Mae’! We have video of her coming off the ferry in Nantucket and lots of training videos for you to watch. We expect Lucy to be another easy to train Western Pride baby like his siblings. We also have other horses that have come through this same trainer and they are ALL quiet and fun to ride. Call us and we can fill you in on the details.
If you want to compete, with a great partner, you have found her-look no further. Exploding Lucy is ready to take you to the top.
Please call for pricing. The price can go up or down depending on the owner. We always check with the owner when someone is a serious buyer. Many times the price goes down to a really good home. We do not own these horses so we cannot control the pricing. We will not sell a horse to just anyone with the money. We carefully select the horses we sell and we work hard to make a perfect match. If you don’t call, we cannot help you. We are not a rescue and our horses are not ‘rescue priced’. Most horses are between $2500 and $4500 – some higher and some lower. Call and we can talk more our horses. Let us help you find the perfect match. We take the gamble out of getting a Thoroughbred off-the-track. Learn more about how our Track Prospect Horses are priced on the main Bits & Bytes Farm website.
I look forward to speaking with you. Please call 770-704-6595 between 9am and 9pm. East Coast Time – Elizabeth Wood
