Sergeant Reckless is a 3-year-old grey mare named for the famous Korean warhorse. She sticked at 15.3&1/2 yesterday so should mature around 16.1 to 16.2. Reckless is by Rabble Rouser (Royal Appearance x CCI** mare Irish Lace) out of winning steeplechase mare Mabelino (Trempolino x Suzanne Pollard). Reckless has a big jump, lovely gaits, a great temperament and is unflappable. Will make superb horse for amateur or pro. Sharon White is currently riding her 3/4 sibling, Redoubtable.

Reckless’s sire, Rabble Rouser, is by Virginia Tech’s Oldenburg stallion Royal Appearance who finished 4th in the 100-Day Stallion Test and was Reserve Champion in the 2001 East Coast 6-Year Old Young Jumper Finals. Royal Appearance sired Royal Raconteur who was 5th and Best Conditioned at the Jersey Fresh CCI2* and 2nd at the Blair Castle CCI3* in Scotland with Clark Montgomery. Royal Appearance was sired by Riverman who himself sired CCI**** horses R-Star and Slate River. Rabble Rouser’s dam is OTTB mare Irish Lace (JC – Femme Sol’e) who was competed through the CCI** level by an adult amateur. Rabble Rouser was kicked in the hip as a yearling causing a fracture that slipped and ended his riding career before it ever started; however, we have retained him and used him as a sire because of his lovely temperament, build, movement and excellent genetics.

Reckless’s dam, Mabelino, is a beautiful thoroughbred steeplechaser retired from Kinross Farm where she had two first place finishes and three second place finishes in seven starts. Unfortunately, a fall and a fractured knee ended her career, and she retired to the breeding shed. Mabelino has a number of foals with successful steeplechase careers including her 2007 colt, Schoolhouse Woods, who won the 2015 Virginia Hunt Cup Steeplethon, and her 2006 filly, With Bells On, who won her hurdles debut in 2010 before going on to event to the CCI* level. Mabel has a floating trot, a great gallop and a superb temperament which she passes to her babies.

Reckless qualifies for our mare buyback program: We take great pride in the mares we breed. For qualified mares who are breeding sound, we agree to give trade-in credit towards another Wits End horse until the mare turns 18 years of age. The value of the trade in will be based on her show record, her age, and her pedigree. By activating this option, we ensure that we get good mares with the bloodlines we love back into our breeding program, and you will know that, if your partner is injured or needs to retire or is just not the right match for you, she will have a permanent home here.
