This is 2 YO offering and part of the 2019 Wasabi Ventures Stables 2 Year Old Program.
-- This Florida-bred High Cotton filly has a lovely conformation. The horse walked correctly and cleanly and vetted perfectly, too.
-- The horse will be staying in Florida and moving to Gulfstream Park and Ronnie Spatz.
NOTE on PRICING:
This horse came out of our 2018 Yearling Program and received a final bid of $24,000.
As it was not a claim and because the horse will have some months of training before it begins racing, we are including 2 months of estimated training bills ($6,000) to offset the initial cost. These costs will, of course, be settled when this horse concludes her racing career with us.
NOTE on NAMING: We are going to run a naming process on the horse. Anyone that becomes a part of this 2 YO will have a vote in the naming of her. For each .5% you own, you get 1 vote on the name selection from the three final name choices.
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.
