Central Banker filly Outlook

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!

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2020.
