Nancy Frenkil called her Viollette but her registered name is Ain't She Clever. She is a 18 year old mare with a history of racing and breeding. Viollette has always been lucky to have someone who cares about her. Nancy kept Viollette at her farm for a dear friend. Sadly Nancy passed away last year and her dear friend followed her some moths later leaving Viollette behind. The estate has instructed that Viollette find a new home and that is why TPR is making her availability known.
Viollette stands 16 hands. She has a sweet disposition and is fully sound.
After eleven starts, Ain't She Clever retired from racing in 1998. She has foaled five successful horses to include flat track retiree Black Top Hat, a past contender in the Team Chase at Greenspring with owner Charles Fenwick, Jr. Black Top Hat has been a solid timber jumper and hunter.
She is a KY bred by sire Clever Trick.
Viollette, would be a nice riding and pleasure/trail horse. I recently travelled to Nancy Lee Farms to take updated pictures and take her for a ride. No one had ridden her for 15 years. Please visit www.goodhorse.org to see the video of this ride!
Since retiring from both racing and breeding Viollette has been at a farm and has offered companionship to a multitude of horses in every stage of life. She has been well cared for and recently received a clean bill of health from her veterinarian.
She is calm and easy going, yet still has the spirit and vitality needed in a trail/pleasure horse.
With the passing of her benefactor and owner, Ain't She Clever is available to a good home. She is residing in Glyndon, Maryland where she can be seen and is available free to a good home with a suggested donation of $150 to TPR.
