Longfootlaverne ended a great racing season with a finish-day card win, reaching a deal as the 2022 Top Thoroughbred at Horseshoe Indianapolis. Guided by Joe Ramos, the scrawny five-year-old mare scored her seventh win in the encounter to set a new record for most wins in a single encounter by a horse in both categories. Thoroughbred Horses and Precious Horses.
Longleglaverne’s journey is full of twists and turns for coach Tianna Richardville. She took the mare in third at Horseshoe Indianapolis in the fall of 2020 and had two wins in four starts before losing to her in a match at Churchill Downs. She went to the Fair Grounds with her newfound connections, but Richardville kept an eye on her. When they lowered her to the asking price of $5,000, she once again demanded her back into her warehouse.
Richardville explains: “I asked her for $20,000, and then they reduced her to $5,000 at the Fair Grounds. “I caught her in seven ways and brought her back to Indiana. She was difficult to deal with and very aggressive in the morning, so maybe that was a factor in their discounting her. there’s quite a bit of attitude, but I know when it kicks and squeals in the cage, it’s ready to go.”

Jockey Joe Ramos has accompanied her on all eight of her wins with Richardville, the company that owns Thirstyacres Racing LLC.
Richardville said: “She caught fire this year. “I had Horses in the Lead with Wildcard Prado last year, so winning it back this year with ‘Laverne’ is very special. I’m very proud to have had two very nice horses in my stable during the year. the past few years.”
Longfootlaverne currently has 14 wins in 39 career starts. Her bank account is now just $200,000 for life. She is 11 out of 12 at Horseshoe Indianapolis.
