Profile: G1 Thoroughbred Mare #5140

Regular Run Stablemate Assortment
#5140 Thoroughbred Mare

The short-lived #5140 was an easy model to overlook; she was bay (been there, done that with the Thoroughbred Mare) and she only ran from 1989 to 1990. She is probably better known as a part of the 1989 Sears Stablemate Assortment than as a regular run single.

Even though a bay Thoroughbred Mare had already been released, this bay is difficult to confuse with her predecessor. The 1989 bay (or brown as she is often called) had more of a nut-brown coat, generally a satin finish, and the near-hind stocking stayed pretty consistent; in contrast the 1975 mare was more of a red bay, and the leg markings and finish varied widely.
