This filly was purchased at the Saratoga New York-Bred Yearling Sale from one of the most well-respected consignors in the business, Archie St. George. He sang her praises all week.

She's eligible for both the NY-bred program and the recently enhanced New York Stallion Stakes Series. The Series purse values were recently doubled to $2,300,000 in 2019. Read more.

The NY-bred program is the best state-bred program in the country, with over 800 restricted racing opportunities annually (including 45 stakes) and $45 million set aside for state-bred races. If you live in New York, buying a state-bred is a great way to virtually guarantee your horse remains racing at the Empire State tracks all year long.

Trainer George Weaver has one of the fastest 2-year-olds in the country in his barn -- Nashua Stakes (G3) winner Vekoma.

Central Banker, by Speightstown, has gotten off to a superb start as a sire, and is a top five first-crop sire. As a racehorse, he was precocious 2-year-old who won second time out at Saratoga. As a 3-year-old he was third in the King’s Bishop (G1) and just half a length away from becoming a grade one winner in the Malibu (G1) at Santa Anita.

We fully expect to have this filly in the starting gate for George Weaver next summer at the Spa!
