Springfield, MA — Equine Affaire is set to kick off on Thursday (November 10) and run through the weekend at the Eastern States Exposition in E. Springfield, Mass.
Standardbreds will be present in the breed pavilion (Stroh Building) for the duration of the weekend, as well as having a 10 minute breed demonstration in Mallory South on Saturday (November 12) at 3:15 p.m. Standardbreds will also be participating in the Equine Fundamental’s Forum at 1:45 p.m. on Sunday (November 13).
The following horses will be on hand to represent the breed in the demonstrations as well as the petting stall, which is adjacent to the booth in the breed pavilion:
Coco Lindy, a 9-year-old gelding by Cantab Hall out of the Supergill mare Nutty Butty who has earned over $483,000 and is currently racing at Plainridge Park
Determine This, a.k.a. Cricket, an 11-year-old gelding by Richess Hanover out of the Sportsmaster mare Determination Plus, who earned over $392,000 on the track
Lindon’s Rose Me N, a.k.a. Rosey, a 2006 foal of Lahar out of the Steady Star mare Invite Me In
Xing The Delaware, a.k.a. George, a 2013 foal of Majestic Son out of the SJ’s Caviar mare Dazzling Deb
The USTA would like to thank Lindy Farms, Charlotte Gelston, Kelly Marshall, Meaghan Martin, Sarah Morcum and Colleen Nolan for volunteering to spread the word about Standardbreds, both as racehorses and for their excellence in second careers once they are off the track.
