The horses come first here at Michael & David Easterby Racing. Whether in or out of training we pledge to provide first class care for any horse for which we are responsible.
The duty of care extends beyond racing and we aim to rehome all of our retired racehorses. We often make our ex-racehorses available for sale and recent years have seen former racehorses go on to thrive in careers including polo, Point-to-Pointing, showjumping, horseball and eventing. In some cases ex-racehorses can be taken on as pets or riding horses.
Please note: If you would like to rehome an ex-racehorse from Mick & David then send a private message via Facebook Messenger setting out the age/gender/size you are looking for and a little bit about your experience of working with thoroughbreds. We have a mailing list and we send round details of horses where they match the criteria set out by those looking to rehome.
La Jolie Fille
4yo chestnut filly
La Jolie Fillie is a four-year-old filly by Decorated Knight and a granddaughter of the great Galileo.
Bought as a yearling from Tattersalls in October 2021 for 15,000 guineas, La Jolie Fille has received all of her education here at New House Farm and has beautiful manners. She is a good-looking filly and is very popular with the staff. She is also good friends with one of the farm cats!
La Jolie Fille has run several times on the flat as a three-year-old. She last raced at Wolverhampton on 16th January 2024. However, she doesn't have the speed to win a race and we are offering her for sale as a riding horse.
La Jolie Fille stands at 15.2hh and is calm, quiet and sensible and can be ridden at the yard. The ideal prospect to bring on as an eventer she is fully ROR qualified.
La Jolie Fille has been schooled over barrels by Joanna Mason and she jumps beautifully.
Please contact us on WhatsApp 07779 659 678 to arrange a viewing. She is open to independent vetting.
La Jolie Fille is extremely well bred and offers potential as a broodmare. Her dam Fligaz has black type. She was a two-year-old winner and was placed twice including second in the Listed Bosra Sham Fillies' Stakes at Newmarket. La Jolie Fille is a half-sister to three times three-year-old winner Zulu Tracker and also to juvenile winner Placeholder.
Arthur is a very well put together four-year-old gelding by Storm The Stars out of Affina. He joined us as a yearling in 2021 from Tattersalls Sales.
Arthur has been trained for racing but doesn't have the speed to win under rules. We are therefore making him available for sale off the track. He is a calm and quiet sort and will thrive out of racing.
