Full sibling in blood only. Same 4 grandparents. Doesn't matter that its a different dam.
This foal will be a full sibling (in blood) to Rachel's Valentina
She did not have a foal last year. She didn't take or lost it. I cannot remember which. She was re bred to Galileo last year for a foal this year. She was due in Jan? I don't know if she's foaled yet or not. The plan was to let her foal this year, re breed her to Galileo and then come back to the U.S.
Had her final workout yesterday at Palm Meadows. She went 4F in :49.45 over turf. She will make her debut at Tampa Bay Downs
You caught that too? They changed it from colt to filly :D
Impressive. Very. She did it easily & willingly. Shades of Rachel (to me). I read a couple of statements from her connections after that win. R. Porter is not interested in going the route of the KY Derby with her. He is interested in going to the Oaks & going after what *used* (or is it still?) to be the Filly TC- Mother Goose, Coaching Club American Oaks & the Alabama (all grade 1s) Then if she is still healthy and doing well- take on the boys before she retires.
Think of Havre De Grace's campaign. I tend to agree. Let her develop naturally through the first part of the 3 year old season by taking on her division. I know she's mocked almost every field she's been in. But she still has some others out there to take on that are in her division that could develop into competition for her. I'd like to see another race between her and RV. Then there is the late developing Royal Obsession that could be very good. How about Cathryn Sophia? I'd hate to see her pushed early to be in the Derby and possibly ruin what has begun as a amazing career.
She returned to the work tab on 2/1 going easy 4F in :51 and change. I don't know if they'll step her up yet.
I like this filly.
Was shocked that KI was the favorite. Wasn't surprised with who the winner turned out to be. Mshawish just keeps getting better.
Wow. Paid workout. Looked great doing it too.
