Tidbits from the Pedigree

This writeup is from partner Housatonic Bloodstock:

She is a Ned Evans-bred daughter of Horse of the Year Mineshaft, who is already the broodmare sire of Kentucky Oaks-G1 winner Cathryn Sophia and other Graded stakes winners like Catalina Cruiser, Coal Front, Eagle, Azar, My Boy Jack, Enticed, Leave the Light On, etc.

Starr Gate is out of Stellar, a $700,000 2-year-old in-training purchase by Demi O’Byrne for Coolmore, who went on to be a debut winner at 2, finish 2nd in the G2 Adirondack Stakes next time out, and at 3 win the Very Subtle Handicap for trainer Patrick Biancone.  Stellar is a half-sister to the Grade 1 winner Gygistar, out of Starr County, by Ogygian.  Starr County, in turn, is out of the G2-placed winner Ellie Milove, by Dr. Fager — a half-sister to Breeders’ Cup Sprint-G1 winner and Champion Eillo.  So this is a female family with loads of speed, and Starr Gate herself lived up to that by taking a pair of races at 3-years-old, going 6 furlongs and 6-1/2 furlongs.  Her lifetime record was (7) 2-2-2, $55,680.
