Part of Vintage 2016. This beautiful filly is by the #1 ranked New York sire and by a mare who's sire is a broodmare sire of champions.
This horse was individually selected for Hibiscus Stables by legendary horseman Greg Gilchrist. Greg says, "As always this horse possesses the excellent balance that I require in a horse. She's nicely balanced and has excellent conformation. She's by Bluegrass Cat who's a proven leading sire. Also, she's a January 2nd foal which means that she has the potential to be a very early runner. She'll be older and more mature than almost every other runner in her crop. That's an immediate advantage."
This filly has an "A" nick. She's inbred 4x4 to Mr. Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer, 5x5 to Secretariat, and 5x5 to Bold Ruler. Historically, for this mating, Storm Cat (and his sons and grandsons) bred to mares by Grand Slam have produced numerous stakes winners on both dirt and turf including G2-winning Bradester, G3-winning Scatman, and G3-winning Strict Compliance.
