Meet our off the track thoroughbred for this week – a gorgeous mare named Maxcee who is by Carbonfibre and out of Bismax.
Maxcee was born and trained in Ipswich Qld and was bought by Anita Bridge in 2010 when Maxcee was retired by the breeder/trainer who Anita was riding track work for.
While not the easiest to ride as she is very highly strung, Maxcee took to jumping like a fish to water. Three months off the track and she was competing at 1.10m.
Maxcee absolutely loves the water and nothing more invigorating for her than a swim.
WARNING – You can’t clean her stable with her in it as you be squashed against a wall by and rump demanding for a scratch, a trait she has had all her life.
A couple of years ago, Maxcee was in need of a good break and was sent to an imported Warmblood stallion called Cera Cassiago in 2016. She became an amazing mum producing a beautiful grey filly.
Her first competition back after being weaned from her filly, she stepped straight back out at 1.15m jumping clean.
Maxcee now competes under the name of Genuine Princess and Anita plans to compete in her first World Cup qualifier at Caboolture this July/August.
Wishing both Anita and Maxcee a continued fabulous life together.
