May 11, 1985 - December 20, 2000


Tory, 5 months pregnant
Tory is a 16'3" bay Thoroughbred broodmare. She raced as a 2 year old, and spent many years showing hunter/jumper until she was retired due to a shoulder injury in her later years.

Tory suffered a freak accident while being turned out in the indoor arena, and fractured her right hind leg. Unfortunately, the fracture was severe and compound, and nothing could be done to fix it, so she was euthanized at 9:35pm on December 20, 2000. Tory's greatness will live on in some of her outstanding foals:
  • Momentous: 1996 American Warmblood stallion standing in Marysville, Ohio
  • 'Russia': 1997 outstanding Thoroughbred mare by 'Go For It Matt', - dam of a Congress top 10 hunter
  • Spare Me The Details: 1998 Appendix Quarter Horse mare, futurity placer, Congress finalist, over 100 AQHA points
  • Get Motivated: 2000 Appendix Quarter Horse stallion, futurity placer
