“Another horse I think that is very good value is Footstepsinthesand, and always has been. He’s a great horse to start off a mare, he’s a great horse to get a racehorse from, he gets equally good colts and fillies and he’s a great outcross for Danzig which I think is sometimes hard to find at that price level” Cathy Grassick’s VALUE sires on ITM’s Irish Stallion Show 2021
