UPDATE 4/1/20: Colonel Mist delivered a healthy Street Boss colt, who we've nicnamed Colby.
The BASE PRICE of this foal is $16,450
Colonel Mist was acquired pregnant with her first foal on an April 16th cover date to multiple Grade 1 sire Street Boss.
While unraced herself, Colonel Mist comes from a strong family that produces numerous stakes level runners. Colonel Mist is by the 2008 Travers Stakes winner, Colonel John who won or placed in six Graded stakes races over a 15 race career while earning over $1.7 million. Colonel John is by the great, Tiznow who is the only 2-time winner of the Gr 1., Breeders Cup Classic. Colonel John has sired Grade 1 winners La Coronel and Mirth in addition to other top graded stakes runners like Airoforce, Texas Wedge, and Concave. As a broodmare sire, Colonel John is already responsible for siring the dams of Pat Day Mile (Gr. 2) winner Rushie and the graded-stakes placed winner of over $816k, Bankit. Colonel Mist is a half-sibling to 7 winners including multiple earners of at least $100k, foremost being the Maryland-bred graded-stakes placed mare Ice Mist who ran 2nd in the Gr. 3 Pin Oak Valley View Stakes at Keeneland before going on to win the Jersey Lily Stakes. Ice Mist has since become a stakes producer as a broodmare. Colonel Mist is out of the stakes producing Cozzene mare, Maryland Mist, whose own dam was a graded stakes producer and the dam of 9 winners. Maryland Mist is a half-sister to Grade 3 winner, course record-setter, and winner of the Maryland Juvenile Championship Stakes, Foufa’s Warrior, stakes winner and Grade 1 placed horse Maryland Moon, and stakes winners Full Brush, Certantee, and Media Access. Maryland Mist is the granddam of Grade 1 winner Brillo De Sol, Grade 2 winner London Lane, and stakes horses Access to Charlie, Bear Access, Successful Affair, and Private Opening. The sire of Colonel Mist's foal, Street Boss, was an extremely accomplished horse on the track and is proving just as successful in the breeding shed. On the racetrack, he was one of the top sprinters in the world, winning two Grade 1 races while placing in two others, including the Breeders Cup Sprint. In a 13 race career, Street Boss won 7 times while setting or equaling 3-course records and earning over $830k. As a sire, Street Boss has proven his progeny not only share his dynamic speed, but they can carry that speed over a distance. Street Boss is currently responsible for 7 Grade/Group 1 winners who have won sprinting, routing, on dirt, and on turf. Kentucky Oaks winner Cathryn Sophia is his top domestic runner in addition to Grade 1 winners Danza, Capo Bastone, Decked Out, and recent (December 2020) Grade 1 winner Fair Maiden. Street Boss has also had great success internationally while siring multiple Grade/Group 1 winners and a Horse of the Year. Street Boss has sired 6 millionaires up to this point.
The mating of Street Boss with Colonel Mist is based on a cross that has produced 6% stakes horses from runners. This Maryland-bred foal will be eligible for the lucrative Maryland program which includes the Maryland Million Day stakes races and should be early to mature like Street Boss's best offspring.
