From the time In The Pocket hit the harness racing scene in New Zealand he has been a star.

His first crop contained Christian Cullen 1:54.1 ($1,249,150) and Under Cover Lover 1:51.8 ($864,923)  while his second crop included the champion juvenile Courage Under Fire 1:54.2 ($1,551,941)

The progeny of In The Pocket have won $18,250,055 in New Zealand and his broodmares have been an instant hit in the broodmare barn with $16,941,556 in the bank already and plenty more to come yet.

One breeding cross that has produced some talented fillies in the last few years is that of Artsplace over a daughter of In The Pocket or vice versa.

This cross has produced such talented types as Annie McGuire 1:53.2 ($280,060) and Exotic Lover 1:55.5 ($110,336) and has been seen a bit more after that initial success.

In this years sales the cross is present in Lot 105 at the Australasian Classic Sale in Auckland.

Fullofheart  is her name and she is a daughter of Artsplace from the In The Pocket mare Pocketfullofposies.

Qualified but only lightly raced, Pocketfullofposies has already left three winners including the smart son of McArdle in Mickey McRooney 1:55.8 ($41,067)

The grand dam is the five win Smooth Fella mare Jayvee 2:00.5 who has left seven winners to date including the outstanding grand circuit pacer Sovereign Hill 1:55.5 ($432,555) Black Reef 1:51.8 ($326,846) and Ohara 1:58.8 ($134,131)

Half sisters to Pocketfullofposies have left such talented pacers such as Dartmoor 1:55.8 ($416,575) J Walker 1:58 ($173,291) and Bettor Dreams 1:54.6 ($172,542)

The third dam is the New Zealand Broodmare Excellence Award winner in Aberfeldy who has done such an outstanding job in the broodmare barn.

This is widely recognized as the strongest branch of the famed Black Watch family and with all the smart racehorses close up in the pedigree you can see why.

Fullofheart ticks a lot of boxes being by Artsplace from an In The Pocket grand daughter of the brilliant broodmare Aberfeldy and should have plenty of residual value once she has finished racing.
