This is a pedigree write up on this two year old from Housatonic Bloodstock:
This filly is a daughter of Grade 3 winner High Cotton, a son of the top class Dixie Union whose other sons at stud include the likes of G1 Belmont winner Union Rags and leading freshman sire Overanalyze. High Cotton is out of an A.P. Indy half-sister to Eclipse Champion 2-year-old filly Storm Song, and his 11 career stakes winners include Grade 1-winning Saratoga 2-year-old Currency Swap, Grade 2-winning Saratoga 2-year-old Spurious Precision, and the $400k earner Speak Logistics.
Her dam, Lilly Marlene, has produced five winners so far, among them the multiple stakes winner Dear Lilly, who triumphed in 14 of her 26 career starts, plus the $232,340 career earner Glory Stars. Lilly Marlene is a half-sister to the stakes winner Nickel Classic, herself the dam of two stakes winners and the granddam of Grade 3 winner Conquest Tsunami and another stakes winner. Lilly Marlene’s other half-siblings include the multiple stakes-placed colt Thunderpumper, as well as two fillies who have produced stakes winners.
Since Lilly Marlene is a daughter of Danzig’s son Lost Soldier, this filly is bred on the same nick as the Hopeful Stakes winner Currency Swap, who is also out of a mare by a son of Danzig. This is a pedigree filled with early-maturing, sprint influences, and hopefully this filly lives up to those family proclivities.
