Hope has been at Margaux Farm for 4 months now. Her breaking went well and her training is progressing nicely. She has been jogging and galloping 6 furlongs and is on night turn out. She is a little excitable when the rider first gets on her, but is learning to settle. I plan to visit next week to see her progress.
The trainer describes her as an honest, genuine filly who likes to please. He says she is independent, and intelligent, but not stubborn. She likes to learn her lessons completely before learning new things. They plan to start gate training 2x/wk this next week. Pictures below taken last month.
