RE­GRET

EQUUS - - Conformati­on Insights -

Re­gret, 1912, was, as pre­vi­ously men­tioned, the first filly, and still one of only three, to win the Ken­tucky Derby, a

feat which she ac­com­plished in 1915. She raced and won against the best colts and re­mained com­pet­i­tive un­til 5 years of age. By Broom­stick out of Jer­sey Light­ning, Re­gret traces to Lex­ing­ton through Ri­ley, an­other Ken­tucky Derby win­ner. Re­gret had 11 ca­reer starts with nine wins, all at clas­sic dis­tances. As a brood­mare, Re­gret pro­duced only one ma­jor stakes win­ner. The photo pre­sented here high­lights her very cor­rect con­for­ma­tion: Note par­tic­u­larly the lovely shoul­der; broad, shield-shaped knees; sub­stan­tial hocks; ide­ally -an­gu­lated hind limbs; and big pelvis with prom­i­nent points of but­tock.
