Date of last service:11 December 2016
Selling with a foal at foot:No

Artisan is a big roomy mare from the family of the great Strawberry Road.

I have attached photos of her last 2 foals, being a 2015 colt by Spirit Of Boom, and her filly foal at foot by the same stallion.

They are her best 2 foals produced yet, and I was so impressed by their type and substance, that I returned Artisan to Spirit Of Boom in 2016. She sells with a POS 45 test In Foal to him.

I am retaining the filly at foot to race, and replace this mare in my broodmare band.

She is basically for sale at cost of service fee to the stallion.
