  • This horse has been seen to windsuck

6 Starts: 1 Win and 2 Placings

Sassy Rhonda is a 4yo mare who is a winner and dual minor placegetter from only six starts. Suited to the out and out sprint distances, her win was over the 1000m trip with both her placings around the same mark. Sassy Rhonda is a nice, strong, athletic mare with plenty of scope and stands at approximately 16hh. She has a lovely temperament and is very good to handle and work with.

Currently carrying a NSW Benchmark rating of 52 and with an abundance of racing upside to her, Sassy Rhonda is the type of mare that can be set well for a new stable and progress quickly through her grades.

Although only a very lightly raced mare with plenty of racing still ahead of her, Sassy Rhonda also holds residual value as a future breeding prospect as well. Her sire King Cugat is a son of Kingmambo who has sired 21 individual stakes winners and has a winners to runners strike rate of 66%. Her dam Red Rhonda is a placed daughter of General Nediym and full-sister to the Group 2 Maribyrnong Plate winner Ra Sun. Both Red Rhonda and Ra Sun are out of Red Sundae who is an unraced sister to the phenomenal race track performer ICE CREAM SUNDAE.

Following on from her last preparation Sassy Rhonda has had a good spell and has been back in work now for about a month. Sassy Rhonda is being offered for genuine sale to dissolve a partnership and inspections are welcome.

Sassy Rhonda has also been entered to sell through the 2017 Inglis March Thoroughbred Sale in Melbourne unless sold beforehand.
