Dress Blues is a Kentucky bred Mare foaled on April 16, 2006. This is the first horse claimed by Bill and Dorothy at Turf Paradise. She has great bloodlines. Her dad is Slew City Slew and her mom is Blue Lupin. To date she has earned over $92,000.
Dress Blues is a favorite among many racing fans at Turf Paradise. She may not make it to the winner’s circle, but she is great to include in an exacta or trifecta bet.
Being the quintessential female is an important trait to remember with Dress Blues. She will run when she is ready but requires time between races. This is a mistake that we have made in the past. She also is not fond of hot weather and will not put out maximum efforts when the temperatures are too high.
At the moment, Dress Blues is resting and hopefully getting ready for the next racing season at Turf Paradise which opens in October. She is getting older and needed a rest. We hope to get another good season out of her.
Peppermint candy is Dress Blues favorite treat and she is jealous if we talk to another horse before we go to see her. As I said, she is the quintessential female!
