When we went to look at this horse back in August of last year, she was owned by a group of lawyers who were disbanding and had put her up for sale. At that time, her name was 'In Contempt', and, having pretty much been neglected and ignored, she had quickly gained a reputation for being mean and mad...actually they told us she was a 'bitch'.
Interestingly, from the second we met her--that very first day--she was so sweet and so kind and OH so affectionate to us! As if it was meant to be, we all fell in love with her instantly.
We made the lawyers an (almost ridiculous) offer on 'In Contempt'
...and she became our little girl.
Of course the first order of business on the docket was finding the perfect new name for our sweet little lucky girl.
Juju means "A supernatural good luck charm" or "magical power"
And, well, the 'Sweet' part was a given.
She has absolutely lived up to her name.
Saturday, Sweet Juju will be in her second race.
Wish her Sweet Juju
