Stunning Filly By Sire of WPT’s Seven Trumpets
At the OBS March sale, West Point went against the grain and latched onto an Oklahoma-bred, a colt named Little Drama who showed talent to fit anywhere and has been just as impressive since then in the Steve Asmussen barn at Keeneland.
Now we have a Oklahoma-bred filly to go with him: a daughter of Morning Line who cut an imposing presence around the barn at the OBS April sale and backed that up on the track with an impressive breeze in the training preview.
This week she will join Little Drama in the shedrow of Steve Asmussen, the leading trainer in the country in wins and purse earnings so far in 2021.
"Just like we said with Littla Drama, this horse doesn't know where she was bred, it was just another field she was grazing in," West Point's Jeff Lifson said. "We bought two of the best Morning Lines, that being Seven Trumpets and Empire Line, so we know what they look like. This is a filly out of a Medaglia d'Oro mare and just look at the balance and the beauty of this filly. She is just really special."
The filly glided through an eighth of a mile in 10.1 and poured it on in the gallop-out, clocked with an eye-catching three furlongs in 33.
West Point's Morning Line sons Seven Trumpets and Empire Line both retired over the winter. Seven Trumpets was a Kentucky stakes winner who carried his game all the way to the Breeders' Cup and to Saratoga, where he finished second in the Grade 1 Allen Jerkens Stakes. Empire Line was a New York-bred who made a quick ascent, winning his debut and then taking down the Damon Runyon Stakes second time out.
