Cable is a multiple graded stakes-placed daughter of the great Dynaformer. She is out of the excellent broodmare, Sterling Pound, which makes Cable a half-sister to the top-class racehorse and stallion, Exchange Rate. Cable earned $132,429 in 10 career starts, with 2 wins and 7 top 3 finishes. She broke her maiden on debut on the Belmont Park turf, after being forced to alter course twice in mid-stretch. She finished 2nd in the G3 Suwannee River Stakes by only 3/4 of a length, where she again encountered traffic trouble in the stretch and had to wait for racing room. She additionally placed in the G3 Athenia Stakes at Belmont Park and the G3 The Very One Stakes at Gulfstream Park, both times by less than 2 lengths.
As a broodmare, Cable has produced a winner named Holy Kingdom, by Australia. In 10 career starts, Holy Kingdom has been in the money on 6 occasions at prominent tracks like Ascot and Newmarket. She has an unraced 3yo by Zoffany, named Royale, who is currently in training with Christophe Clement. She currently has an unnamed 2yo filly by Orb and a yearling colt by Creative Cause in the pipeline. The plan is to breed her to Redesdale this spring for a 2021 foal.
Sterling Pound, Cable's first dam, is a graded stakes winner by Seeking the Gold. She earned $155,619 in 17 career starts, with 5 wins and 12 total placings. Her greatest accomplishment is winning the G3 Honey Bee Handicap at the Meadowlands. She additionally placed in the G3 Next Move Breeders' Cup Handicap and the Woodhaven Handicap. Her best performances were all on the dirt at middle distances.
Exchange Rate, Sterling Pound's most successful offspring, was sired by the great Danzig. He made a remarkable impression as a yearling, selling for $1.4 million at the Keeneland July sale to Padua Stables, who sent him to Hall of Fame trainer, D. Wayne Lukas. In 15 starts from 2 to 4, Exchange Rate won 6 and finished in the money 10 times to earn $479,803. He debuted as a June 2yo and broke his maiden immediately by over 4 lengths at Hollywood Park. Towards the end of his freshman year, he placed in the G3 Best Pal Stakes and the G3 Hollywood Juvenile Championship Stakes. As a 3yo he was put on the Derby trail and won the Risen Star at Fair Grounds by daylight, despite hitting the side of the gate at the break. He additionally placed in the G2 Churchill Downs Handicap as a 4yo. In his swan song, he dueled through the stretch to win the G2 Tom Fool Handicap at Belmont Park by a head. Although he is best known for his accomplishments on the dirt, Exchange Rate proved that he could be successful on the turf as well, with 2 wins and a graded stakes placing (G2 Frank E. Kilroe Mile) in 4 starts on the surface.
As a stallion, Exchange Rate's top runners have included: Ermine (G1 Apple Blossom H., 2nd in G1 Kentucky Oaks), Ball Dancing (G1 Jenny Wiley S., G2 Sands Point S.), Sunset Glow (G1 Del Mar Debutante, 2nd in G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf), and Swap Fliparoo (G1 Test S.).
Sterling Pound is also the dam of Sabre d'Argent, a son of Kris S. who was campaigned by Darley after selling for $1 million as a yearling. He earned $158,607 in his 10 race career, in which he won 5 and placed an additional 2 times. He broke his maiden on debut at Newmarket and later won the G3 Petros Rose of Lancaster Stakes and Haven and British Holidays Fairway Stakes. He returned to the United States, where he placed in the G3 Fort Marcy Handicap. Although most of his races were on the turf, he did win at the allowance level on the dirt as well.
Cable's second dam is Spectacular Bev, who was sired by Spectacular Bid. She earned $167,257 in 17 starts, with 4 wins and 9 placings. She won the Bold Princess Stakes, Summer Guest Stakes, and was graded placed in the G3 Nijana Stakes, G3 Pucker Up Stakes, G3 Athenia Handicap, and G3 Miss Grillo Stakes.
