    We Miss Artie, sold by Lister for $90,000 at a Kentucky yearling sale two years ago, is now owned by the very successful Kentucky-based husband-and-wife team of Ken and Sarah Ramsay, and trained by one of the world’s most successful horsemen, Todd Pletcher.

    The colt, who must prove on Saturday that he can handle a traditional dirt track — his wins have come on synthetic dirt and grass — is also the early favourite for the Queen’s Plate on July 6 at Woodbine.

    snip

    And the colt was a looker, as they say in the industry, with good size and almost faultless conformation.

    “I remember him as a foal, he was good looking.†said Carroll, who met Northern Dancer during the 1980s when broodmare manager at Windfields Farm. “He developed into a handsome horse with a big walk to him.â€

    By the time We Miss Artie — named after a late relative of Sarah Ramsay — was a yearling and being prepped to be sold at the 2012 Keeneland September yearling sale, in Lexington, Ky., he was filling out his big frame.

    Yeah. Big
    frame.

    The horse is the problem with Artie.

    He's bred for the turf, not the dirt, but I'll throw a few bucks on him just in case. ;)

    The horse will call is sick and then go get a complete physical with a liver enzyme test.

    or he'll just nod off mid way thru the race, his jockey won't whip him but just act like nothing unusual is happening
