White Thoroughbred filly catches attention of racing fans

Everyone that has seen the youngster at Gulfstream Park – the two-year-old Thoroughbred filly named Lady Valentine – has been both fascinated and amazed by her sparkling white coat. On Dec. 19 her unique color variation even caught the interest of the Paulick Report as they posted a short release about Lady Valentine.

The majority of Thoroughbreds are bays and chestnuts and occasionally there will be a gray. But there’s a new mare at Gulfstream and she sports a white coat, making it easy to spot her among the 1,300 horses that stable and train at the racing park. She certainly is rare and a bright shining oddity among Thoroughbreds. About the only dark color on this filly is the speck or two tiny spots or freckles. The rest of her shines like freshly fallen snow.

This rarity has made Lady Valentine an instant track favorite. Everyone that sees her loves her.

Lady Valentine is out of a chestnut mare Evolutionary Lady. Her sire is Allamystique, who is a uniquely marked white stallion and has thrown colorful offspring.

Trainer Aubrey Maragh has had Lady Valentine in one of the stalls at the track for six weeks. She has only breezed two times in those six weeks and she is being conditioned carefully and most slowly. If she heads to a race, she will wear the colors of Box It Stable.

According to Maragh, Lady Valentine is still a baby. She is really playful and has no vices such as kicking or biting. The two-year-old is still growing, developing and needs to fill out and muscle up. Maragh is attempting to put some more weight on her.

The owner and his daughter, for whom the filly was purchased, watch her train on weekends.
