Conversationalist (Unbridled's Song x Lacadena) is available via New Vocations: http://www.newvocations.org/horseprofil ... tionalist/

4yr old gelding standing 16.1 1/2h tall by the late Unbridled’s Song. He has big bones and solid round feet. He is almost reminiscent of a draft cross when you are looking at him. He is always playing in the field and is happiest when he can find a partner in crime. He is still a bit of a teenage boy flexing his muscles and trying to be top dog. CV will be best suited for flatwork disciplines such as dressage and low level jumping probably up to the 2’6″-2’9″ range.


Bred and raced by Bobby Flay and trained by Dale Romans, Conversationalist had 4 starts and retired a maiden. His 2nd dam, Butterfly Blue, is a Sadler's Wells half-sister to Better Than Honour (dam of Rags to Riches, Jazil, etc.) and a full-sister to Maryinsky (dam of Peeping Fawn, Thewayyouare). His 3rd dam is Blush with Pride, winner of the KY Oaks, Ashland, etc.

Petalesharo (Empire Maker x X Star) is available through Second Stride: http://secondstride.org/petalesharo.htm

17.1 gelding. He is a big, sweet guy and he loves attention. Retired from racing with a bowed tendon. Cleared for easy walking. Riding sound at all gaits, but needs time for proper healing that will last.


His dam, X Star, was Gr1 placed at two and is a half-sister to Master Command and full-sister to Gr3 winner Aurora Lights.

His 2nd dam, Lady Lochinvar, is a half-sister to Gr1 winner and sire Al Mamoon, Gr1 winner La Gueriere (dam of Lasting Approval and Gr1 winner Icon Project), and Lost Soldier (sire of Lost in the Fog).

His 3rd dam, Lady Winborne, is a half-sister to champion and Arc winner Allez France.

His 4th dam is Priceless Gem, the only filly I can think of that ever beat Buckpasser.

And I had to stop because the immediate family of Priceless Gem is so freaking amazing that I'd be here all night :D

I might be the only one who finds all of this stuff fascinating, but to see these guys up for adoption for $500 and to know that they're the end result of some seriously amazing horses I've worshiped for my entire life... I don't know, I just love connecting the dots in pedigrees :lol:

I love the pedigrees on these horses as well. I have to say that is one big bow on Petalesharo. He is a beauty though.

He just got adopted, looks like they're taking him home to give that leg a rest and will take it from there :)

Chismosa (Exlusive Quality x Local Gossip) is a 2011 filly available through New Vocations: http://www.horseadoption.com/horseprofiles/chismosa/

Her third dam, Easy Now, is a half-sister to Easy Goer. Her fourth dam is multiple Grade 1 winner Relaxing, who was also '81 Champion Older Mare and '89 KY Broodmare of the Year. In '81, Relaxing was fourth to Pleasant Colony in the Woodward and in the final race of her career, was third in the Jockey Club Gold Cup to John Henry :D

Seton Hall (Lion Heart x New Jersey), a 2007 gelding, is up for adoption via Second Stride: http://www.secondstride.org/photos/setonhall2.jpg

According to his profile, he isn't spooky or naughty :lol:

He retired with a record of 28-3-3-3 and earnings of just over $160k. He tried Grade 3 company twice, but didn't fare so well (most recently 7th in the Stars and Stripes this year at Arlington). I remember seeing him run a few times--he was only dropped into straight claiming ranks once--and was glad to see he retired sound and ready for a second career.

His fuzzy winter coat :D

Seton Hall has a nice long neck. Good looking boy. I like his short cannon bones.
Chismosa looks like a sassy lil red head, I bet she can be a little fireball!
