At Select Sires we follow the sales of our Stallions’ progeny and those of our Trainers. We participate in the build up, we watch them go through the sale and we record the stats. It’s important.
What is equally, if not more important is what those horses do post sale, we don’t often receive feedback, but when we do it’s gold.
3yo Hazelwood Congressman mare Arlee Flotus was purchased at the 2022 Nutrien Classic Sale by Kate Southern. A big tick for Congressman’s connections because you always hope your horses’ sell to someone who can bring out the best in them.
Such is the case with Kate who rode Arlee Flotus to success in her first ever run in the Burke & Will Futurity this weekend. Not only did they win, they won with a 4 point margin! As if this wasn’t enough, she also placed 4th in the Classic Challenge.
Kate says, “I absolutely love her!” And why wouldn’t she. A match made in heaven.
So glad Kate Jones was on hand to capture the moment!
