The Pacing World’s Best Filly
Thoroughbred flat horse racing has had magnificent fillies such as Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra to uplift the industry. While fans are keeping their eyes open for the next talented filly to take on the boys and bring spark to the race track, the pacing horse racing world already has theirs. A beautiful three-year-old filly, named See You At Peelers, has been proving to be the queen of the pacing industry. With her spectacular unbeaten record, it is hoped that fans across the board will take notice of this magnificent horse and her wonderful racing career so far.
On 4 June 2011, the Art Roony Pace was hosted by Yonkers Raceway, with a purse amount of $307 000. See You At Peelers took the victory comfortably and returned home with a sixteenth consecutive winning performance. There was some speculation that a horse named Krispy Apple would be a fierce challenger for the filly at the Fan Hanover Final, which was hosted at the Mohawk Racetrack on 18 June 2011, but See You At The Peelers was able to secure eighteen victories off eighteen starts. The race had a purse of $601 000 and See You At The Peelers has not only won another racing event, but has moved herself into the position of being one of the best pacing horses the industry has ever seen.
See You At Peelers is trained by Jimmy Takter, who compares her to Zenyatta. Saying that she is just as much a champion, it is just their disciplines that differ, not their achievements. She is already viewed as the most talented standardbred horse the industry has seen in the last few years. She was bred in New York and participated in a number of state bred competitions and ended her two-year-old season with thirteen victories off thirteen starts, which included the Breeders Crown. She comfortably picked up where she left off at the beginning of her three-year-old campaign, getting right back into winning her racing events.
Her trainer, being in the elite league of top pacing horse trainers, commented that she will now rest for a week or two, and then return to a few sire stakes to get her ready to take on her male counterparts. The Little Brown Jug is being run in Delaware on 22 September 2011, and it seems that they will be working towards this event. Not only will her talent be tested against competitive contenders, but the race also forms part of the Triple Crown for pacing. It is hoped that See You At Peelers will be able to continue on her wonderful winning streak, and go down in history as one of the best standardbred horses of our time.
