ARRIVED AT ATR:
Connect - Halljoy (IRE), by Halling
Halligirl is a 5 year old, 16 hand, bay mare who came to After the Races directly from her racing connections. After 29 races, her breeder claimed her back just to retire her which is the kind of story we love to hear! This pretty mare is by Connect and out of a Halling mare. This means she is a granddaughter of Curlin with Smart Strike, Holy Bull, and other greats farther back in her pedigree.
To our knowledge, Halligirl retired sound. Upon our arrival our vet found her slightly off on both left feet, but she also had increased digital pulses and no changes on flexions, so she thinks she has a couple sore feet. She suggested giving her at least 30 days to just be a horse before going back to work, but wasn't concerned about her long-term future.
Halligirl is available to someone willing to give her the down time she needs before going back to work!
