This daughter of Snowbound is the last foal of our grand old lady Northern Partner giving her big shoes to fill as a broodmare. Showing blazing speed at the track - working 4 furlongs in the mud in 46.2 seconds as a juvenile was not unusual for her - she got hurt in her first start and joined our broodmare band in the fall of 2004.
In the evening hours of Friday, January 20th, 2006 she had her first foal, a colt by Liberty Gold, a multiple stakes winning son of Crafty Prospector - Pleasant Colony. Golden Partner looks just like his dam, chestnut with lots of white. To see Golden Partner's catalog page, please click here.
When joining Tim McCanna's barn at Emerald Downs in 2009, Golden Partner ran a green 4th in his first start, finished 3rd in his second start and won his third lifetime start wire to wire. Congratulations to Tim and jockey Ricky Frazier. Restired after his 3yo season, Golden Partner came home to Marble Hill to start his new career as a riding horse. A lovely mover and talented jumper, he is destined for a career in eventing, ridden by our son Hauke.

In the early morning hours of 5/7/2008, Sledding Partner delighted us with her second colt, another flashy chestnut with a blaze and 4 white stockings. Magic Partner is by Katowice, a stakes winning and champion producing son of Danzig. Magic was racing for a partnership and trained by Joe Toye. Like his older brother, he is a winner an has earned a paycheck almost every time he raced. After his racing career he became a hunter/jumper in CA.
Due to the current situation in the WA racing industry, Sledding Partner was not bred back in 2008.
in 2010,the mare had a stunning bay full brother to Magic Partner, Come On Partner. Started under saddle and trained by Charlie Essex, Come On is made his racing debut in 2012 at Portland Meadows for Dennis Trenkenschuh, Charlie Essex and Marble Hill Stables. Second in a maiden special weight in his first start, he won his second start at the beginning of the 2013 Emerald Downs meet. This was followed by a third place finish and a second win. Come On has now been retired and after a few month of turnout at Marble Hill he will start his next career as a sport horse.

Due to the current situation in the WA Thoroughbred market, Sledding Partner was not bred back in 2010.
The mare foaled a stunning gray filly by Preachinatthebar on her exact due date, 4/25/2012. Charming Partner is tall, elegant, correct and very personable.
Sledding Partner was not bred back in 2012, but the outstanding quality of her daughter convinced us and the mare is back in foal to Preachinatthebar for a 2014 foal.
