There’s no doubt about it, this unraced 16h filly is “Stunning!”
You’ll recognize many of the names in this big-bodied and well-conformed girl’s pedigree. She’s by Trappe Shot and features Thoroughbred royalty such Tapit, Pulpit, A.P. Indy, Unbridled, Fappiano, Seattle Slew, Mr. Prospector, Thunder Gulch, Gulch and Northern Dancer. Her class shines through in everything she does. She has a quiet nature, is very easy to have in and around the barn and ties and crossties well.
Stunning is currently turned out with a small group of like-minded, easy-going mares. She’s not aggressive with other horses but isn’t a push over either—she takes care of herself out there.
This attractive girl is best suited for a career as a pleasure horse, and her inquisitive nature would make her an ideal trail horse—she’s not afraid of new things and experiences. With her naturally muscular build and quiet nature, we can see Stunning looking gorgeous in Western tack!

ADOPTION FEE POLICY
New Vocations’ adoption fees are intentionally set lower than the cost of buying most Thoroughbreds or Standardbreds through a private seller. In today’s market, it’s not unusual for horses coming right off the track to be listed for sale at a price between $2,000 and $5,000. At New Vocations, we set a fee that will ultimately help each horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means we cannot take in an additional horse until one is adopted. Adopters should be encouraged to know that by adopting a horse through New Vocations, they are actually helping two horses transition to careers outside of racing.
Additionally, adopters get great value for their money: The majority of the horses have been in the program for a minimum of 60 days. During that time, horses are rehabilitated (if needed), socialized with other horses, fully evaluated, and in work with a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses each horse’s history and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.
While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that costs associated with ongoing care and additional training for each horse after adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront, he or she will have more funds available to cover the continuing costs of properly caring for a horse.
