Flashy Bull’s She’saflashymiss
Derby. Everybody who loves the Sport of Kings dreams of being one of only twenty lucky enough to be in that starting gate on the first Saturday in May. It’s February, and everyone is anxiously watching the Derby prep races and looking forward to what the next few months will bring. For some this time brings a melting pot of anticipation, anxiety, and for a lucky few, pure joy. Our Partners lived the Kentucky Derby experience in 2006 with Flashy Bull. The experience changed their lives forever.
Flashy Bull Partner Ray Nikodem described his greatest memory since being involved in racing: Walking from the barn over to the paddock on Derby Day with Flashy Bull is an experience he will never forget. “People don’t realize how special an event that is. Seeing 150,000 screaming people is fabulous. My brother, my wife, and all my friends were there.”

Flashy Bull went on to become a multiple graded stakes winner and the stable’s first Grade 1 winner when capturing the 2007 Stephen Foster Handicap.
The Next Generation of Bulls
When Flashy Bull retired to Airdrie Stud in Kentucky, we couldn’t wait to get our hands his offspring. He was fast, determined, and sound, and we think he’s one of the hottest young stallions out there.
We are excited to showcase our 2-year-old daughter of Flashy Bull, She’saflashymiss.
We’ve kept tabs on this filly since she hit the ground on January 29, 2009. She is a half sister to stakes winner and earner of over $400,000 Ju Jitsu Jax. Take a look at her as a foal:
Later this spring this pretty filly will join the barn of top trainer Tom Albertrani in New York. She’s gone through her early training in Ocala like a true professional and looks and acts like a top racehorse. We can't wait to see this filly roll down the lane at Saratoga this summer.

What They're Saying About She’saflashymiss and Flashy Bull’s Offspring:
Trainer David McKathan, "This is one big filly with a massive hip and monstrous shoulder. Flashy Bull was a gangly youngster, all frame and not as much beef. This filly is way ahead of where he was at this point in terms of physical development. Other conditioners with 2-year-olds in training have noted their Flashy Bulls are good movers and although have some size, seem precocious. She appears to fit that model. "
West Point Thoroughbreds President Terry Finley, "When I first laid eyes on this filly, I thought she was a colt. I've talked to some of the consignors and farms who have Flashy's 2-year-olds in training and they are impressed with his offspring at this stage of the game. Almost all of them say his babies are big stretchy horses. We could not be happier for our first Grade One winner, and we are even happier that we have a filly from his first crop.”
