Why We Bought This Horse

  • Wowwhatabrat was covered on February 23, 2022, by Jimmy Creed and checked in and confirmed in foal on March 17, 2022.   Our anticipation is that this foal will be Maryland-bred.
  • This is a 2022 Individual Foal Offering and is subject to the WVS Individual Foal Program Addendum to the Wasabi Ventures Stables Thoroughbred Management Agreement.   
  •   Highlights of the program:
    • Fixed Price on the Offering - No Ongoing Bills
    • Limited Exposure - Like WVS Racing Programs, there is no chance for Future Expenses. If the Foal offering loses money, WVS absorbs those costs
    • Finite Time - The Foal Offering will be liquidated at the time of his/her weaning from the mare, so you know when an offering ends.  Because you are not buying the mare, you have a finite time period of commitment (e.g. 6 to 18 months)
    • Reduced Risk - WVS will only open a Foal Offering once a mare has checked in foal to the chosen stallion
    • Perpetual Breeders Bonuses - Even after the foal is sold, a Club member can continue to earn breeding bonuses for the racing life of the horse.

We like the matchup of $300k earner and black-type placed Wowwhatabrat with Jimmy Creed so much that she will be heading right back for another breeding with him in 2022.

Some of the appeals to the mating comes from Jimmy Creed’s accomplishments as a stallion, and the fact that starting a young mare off with proven stallions for her first few years gives that mare’s owner the best line on her abilities as a producer.  We have been on the Jimmy Creed bandwagon for a couple of years now, and with his biggest and best-bred crops now having just turned 3YO and 2YO, his profile is poised for enhancement in the next year or two.  As it is, in 2021 he picked up his first G1 victory as a sire (5YO Casa Creed in the Jaipur), and only three stallions topped Jimmy Creed’s 8 black-type juveniles in 2021 (led by Kaufymaker, who placed at the Breeders’ Cup).  He has another 87 2YOs coming to the races in 2022, conceived at his highest stud fee so far ($20,000).TrueNicks gives this mating an “A++” (just like last year) with three stakes winners from 26 runners by Distorted Humor and his sons out of Sovereign Dancer-line mares.  And Jimmy Creed’s sire, Distorted Humor, got G1 Haskell winner Any Given Saturday out of a half-sister to Wowwhatabrat’s dam — meaning the foal from this mating will be relatively closely related to Any Given Saturday, whose other victories included the G2 Brooklyn and G2 Dwyer.

Physically, Jimmy Creed is a beautifully balanced, medium-sized horse with plenty of mass and muscle, and Wowwhatabrat is a bit of a taller, longer, leaner model — we think they’ll blend nicely, as will their racetrack proclivities:  while Jimmy Creed was at his best sprinting on dirt, he has sired versatile types who have handled turf and dirt, going short and long, and Wowwhatabrat did a little bit of everything, as have members of her female family.
