Shifty She was born on Valentine’s Day, 2016, to Gone Astray (sire) and Perilous Hope (dam). Shifty She was a product of pedigree breeding: When the owners (Chris & George) were in Ocala, Florida, visiting a horse, the owner approached him and asked him to take two mares – one of which had a great pedigree.
Chris found that on the mother’s side of the mare, there was a horse who had won several racing competitions. Due to the selective inbreeding of this mare with a stallion from the same family, Chris and his brother-in-law, George, were able to reinvigorate the racing gene in Shifty She.
Shifty She is a prize-winning horse of two ‘regular-Joes’ – Chris Pallas is a full-time Pharmacist for a hospital, and George Klein is a retired semiconductor engineer & builder. While both Chris & George were interested in horses prior to having Shifty She, the partners are proof that you do not have to be a Millionaire to succeed in horse racing.
