Dogwood Patty made all 52 of her starts in Canada, mostly in the claiming ranks at Fort Erie and Woodbine. The daughter of Sauce Boat earned a total of $58,825, with eight wins, eight seconds, and four thirds.
Out of her four foals to race, Dogwood Patty’s highest earner was Yes It’s Patty, a daughter of Yes It’s True, who earned $87,000.
Dogwood Patty then found her way to TAA-accredited Our Mims Retirement Haven. According to Our Mims founder and president Jeanne Mirabito, the now 27-year-old mare is loved by her former racing connections.
“Patty is extremely smart, even to the point of waving her hoof at me if she has picked up a stone,” Mirabito said. “I am pretty sure Patty has inserted herself as second in command since Missy’s (Missy White Oak) passing.”
