  1. My new girl, Call For Backup, AKA Maple [​IMG] she is a 7yo standardbred mare, by Astreos, out of Babe Knows Bo, who is by Bo Knows Jate [​IMG] Astreos has been nominated for the 2010 Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame Award, he earned $1,062,594, won 10 out of 27 starts, with best time of 1:49.3, as a stallion he produced winners of over $37 million [​IMG] her dam, Babe knows Bo (according to Bo Knows Jate's owner) was a very successful race horse down here in the US, but I can't seem to find out much about her, Maples grand sire, dam's side is Bo knows Jate, he is no slacker either! He earned $921,603, won 26 out of 113 starts, with a best time of 1:51.2 [​IMG] Maple has never raced, but I believe that she trained, she seems to have an old healed knee injury from overextension, she is sound now, but I believe that injury may have ended her would be racing career, I managed to get her for only $250.00!!! the previous owner [​IMG] (first time horse owner) could not ride her... she bucked! Well duh! The super crappy western pony saddle they used was KILLING her shoulders! I would have bucked too! She rides pretty good in a well fitting saddle [​IMG] very sweet mare...

    She is a very beautibul girl! I love horses---have since I was three. Got my first horses three years ago, but had to part with them recently due to finances and health issues (mine). Someday, perhaps I will have another.[​IMG]
