Catching Up with Peppers Pride

Undefeated in 19 starts, Peppers Pride won 14 stakes and was a four-time champion in New Mexico. Bred and raced by Joseph Allen, Peppers Pride raced at four different tracks in New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment. She was trained by Joel Marr.
A fan favorite, Peppers Pride was retired after her last race in December, 2008. The mare was shipped to Kentucky in early March, 2009, to Richland Hills Farm and later was moved to Taylor Made Farm, where she now resides.
In foal to Distorted Humor, the 7-year-old mare is due on February 27, 2011. Taylor Shealy regularly takes care of Peppers Pride and said that she doesn’t get excited about much but noted that she is the boss and not a pushover. Peppers Pride shares a field with grade I stakes winner Swift Temper (Giant’s Causeway/Glasgow’s Gold) and graded stakes-placed Racey Player (A.P. Indy/Freesia).
Filled out and looking good as a broodmare, Peppers Pride was relaxed during the photo session.

Don't worry, I didn't forget about the Short listers. Short listers are a unique group, they walk many miles and view many horses. They critique and suggest horses to their clients based on their clients’ preferences. The short listers presently are busy with the upcoming Keeneland September sales with 4,857 catalogued yearlings. Here is a shot of Pat Payne from Taylor Made Sales Agency, hard at work.
