Mystical Prize aka “My Prize” is a 2011, 16.1 hand almost black Thoroughbred mare for sale from the track. She is super sweet loves to go to the racetrack and stand and watch the other horses train before galloping herself. Her owner/trainer also gallops her and says she has one of the softest mouths on a racehorse he has ever ridden. She is vice free and is believed to be being retired sound. She is broke to a mounting block and loves to be handled. This mare could do any discipline asked of her. She is such a sweetie. Don’t wait to call on this black mare. She is priced to sell because her owner/trainer is leaving for Arizona soon and he is done racing her and does not wish to ship her to Arizona.
“My Prize” is very well bred. Her sire sold as a yearling for $1,100,000 at the Keeneland September yearling sales but his babies are not winners at the track. “My Prize” has run just 18 times and won only $11,578. Notable Thoroughbreds in her pedigree include Triple Crown Winners Affirmed and Secretariat, Storm Cat, Kris S (who she looks like) Roberto, Princequillo, and Kentucky Derby Winner Pleasant Colony among other great horses. She is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project and should be a very easy horse to retrain since she is so easy to ride at the track and so sweet.
UPDATE September 2017: Mystical Prize has been SOLD! Congratulations to Rachel Kepes of Sullivan’s Island, SC.

Please call for pricing if you see a horse you like. We will not sell a horse to just anyone with the money and we don’t send prices by PM or email. 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 and 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 770-704-704-6595 between 9am and 9pm. East Coast Time – Elizabeth Wood
