About The Horse

A three-year-old filly, she is in the care of Steve Asmussen who trained her outstanding sire, Curlin, to win 11 times, seven of which were in the very highest company, including a Breeders’ Cup Classic and a Dubai World Cup.

Owned in partnership with KatieRich Farms she was second, on her debut in a Keeneland maiden before filling the same placing in the Listed Astoria Stakes at Belmont Park.

That promise was built upon with an excellent win at Oaklawn, breaking her maiden at the fifth attempt while also turning in a career-best speed figure. She followed that up with another victory, also at Oaklawn in an Allowance Optional Claimer before going on to secure her first Graded success in the Fantasy Stakes. That victory guaranteed her a place in the prestigious Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs where she ran an excellent third.

Rapidly gaining the reputation as one of the most improving fillies in the US she picked up a second Grade Stakes win when showing all her guts and determination to take the Iowa Oaks at Prairie Meadows on her next start and it was a similar story when she landed the Remington Park Oaks in September, her third Grade Three success.

She is a half-sister to seven winners, including Dr Diamond’s Prize and Miss Red Delicious, both successful at Listed level and hails from the family of Grade One winner Senor Pete and her fourth dam, She Won’t Tell, is a full-sister to dual Horse Of The Year Affirmed, winner of the US Triple Crown in 1978.
