Star of Aspen aka ‘Star’ is a 2010, chestnut, 15’2 1/2 hh Thoroughbred mare. She is being retired clean legged and assumed sound. Her only blemish is a very old scare across the bridge of her nose. Her owners are not sure where it came from as she had it when they got her. She has raced the past three summers and then she gets turned out from November till April each winter. So, she already knows how to be a horse.
She is vice-free and good to ride. Her owner and trainer are an older couple who have allowed her to have her way on the ground while being led and handled. With a firm hand, she respects you and behaves as she should.
UPDATE December 2017: Star of Aspen has been SOLD! Congratulations to Margaret Collins of Ardmore, TN. “Star” is going to start a new career as a fox hunter with the Mooreland Hunt in Alabama.
‘Star’ is a beautiful mover with tons of potential to go in any direction. We feel this mare could jump the moon. She has a huge back-end and is put together really well. Don’t let her size fool you she is a complete package.
She does love her peppermints and would love to be someone’s special horse. She is no longer competitive at the track now that she has raced thru her conditions. Her owners would like to find her a suitable show home so she can continue to enjoy her life…and peppermints. ‘Star’ is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project.
Please call for pricing. 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
