    A mare with her credentials barely needs an introduction. Shes A Great Lady is so great they actually named a race after her. She also held a world record that spanned more then a decade.

    Born in 1992 she became a star on the track, setting a world record at Delaware not once but twice, at 3 and again at 4, records that remained longer then most. Great horses are blessed to have races named after them and Great Lady was definitely that great. Earning just shy of $1 million and taking a mark of 1:50.4, she toured the ovals of North America from 2 through 5 earning respect from everyone she raced against. 

    After a budding broodmare career that began under the expert eye of Carter Duer at Peninsula Farm and owned by L&L Devisser, she was sold to us in the fall of 2006. She came with another Golden Girl who we will introduce next week (in fact the two mares have spent more then 20 years together and at varying intervals have been best friends and the worst of enemies).

    Great Lady's broodmare career spanned 12 years but she only produced 6 foals and none garnered the fame and fortune of their revered mother. After her final foaling in 2012, Great Lady has remained a fixture in our group of Golden Girls. As of now the 26 year old mare with a chewed off tail remains an unbreakable spirit, malevolent, dismissive, and otherwise healthy and happy, believing that her horse groupies and not humans care for her best.
