#HORSERACING: PRINCE x PRINCESS DIARIES – DECEMBER 2019
Happy Holidays, from our dear Prince (Mr Will) and Princess (A Pic by Mrwill)! We hope that yours are filled with joy and happiness – from our gorgeous equine family to yours!
So happy to see Princess coming around so well and become who she was meant to become. She’s calmed-down significantly in recent months and I love that she’s made a circle of friends at her farm. Because she’s so used to having been around people, she’s missed the opportunity to socialize like a horse. Recent retiree Corey’s Best (by Seeking the Best) is an earner of almost $150k for Trainer Ron Sadler who was taken-in by some amazing people. She now lives across the hall from Princess, who has taken to her like a big sister, the two enjoying lots of play time together outside and of course, sharing mama Emily!
Their neighbour, Fort Erie‘s reigning Horse of the Year Sniper also is loving his life at the farm as well. Handsome devil.
Emily has taught Princess a few tricks including a bow. She completely has filled-out now and motherhood definitely is in the books at some point with Emily having narrowed it down to a few options for stallions. We can’t wait! Maybe 2020 will be the year.
There’s a new kitty on the block and we love Chico, who belongs to Melissa Girard, a groom to Trainer Julie Belhumeur at Woodbine. Chico is staying at the farm this winter and it seems Princess has taken to the adorable boy (as have I!).
Mr Will continues to enjoy life at the farm surrounded by some new additions to the family by his mom, Michelle, including yearling fillies by Bear’s Kid and red-hot Souper Speedy. His training mate Show Some Skin (nicknamed Anastasia), also by Souper Speedy, put in a fantastic run at the end of the Woodbine meet, finishing second after being bet-down as the heavy-favourite under Patrick Husbands. Big things are definitely ahead for her.
While he had some minor setbacks in 2019, we’re excited for Prince to make his debut at Woodbine as a three-year-old, which suits us just fine as he’s definitely bred to get better with age being by Queen’s Plate winner Not Bourbon.
Here he is with his big sis Bear Kitty (left) who just loves to boss him around, though he doesn’t mind!
And here he is with his said two new baby sisters and his family!
One more signature Selfie for 2019 with Princess and Prince!
May your 2020 be filled with dreams fulfilled and conquered goals!
