Christophe Clement was drawn to this well-bred filly from the first crop of Mitole, a champion sprinter who was able to carry his speed to conquer the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap (the Met Mile).
Mitole earned more than $ 3 million and a place on the stallion roster at Spendthrift Stud, speeding to four triumphs at racing’s highest level in 2019, topped off by his career-capping win in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) at Santa Anita. “He was the fastest horse I’ve ever trained,” Steve Asmussen said of Mitole. Mitole also happens to be a half-brother to Hot Rod Charlie, winner of last year’s Grade 1 Pennsylvania Derby and currently getting primed for the 2022 Breeders’ Cup Classic.
The new filly is the first foal of a Hard Spun mare who is a half-sister to Search Results, one of the leading older fillies in the country after a 3-year-old season in 2021 that saw her capture the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes at Belmont and finish second by a neck in the Kentucky Oaks.
Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2024.
