2017 Thoroughbred filly
foaled March 3, 2017
by ATREIDES (Medaglia d'Oro)
Sire's first foals are 2 year olds of 2018. This filly is half sister to a two year old winner of over $161,000 that is still actively winning! Her 2nd dam is a strong Stakes producer with a good Stakes producing female family.
Atreides is a very well bred sire, out of a top class dam, who has been very well received by race buyers at auction.
15.2 hands. This filly is very pretty and easy to work with. She has good conformation and is a racey type with an uphill build, nice shoulder and balanced body. Strong moving, bold, curious with a good nature.
Turf statistics According to Sid Fernando of Thoroughbred Daily News:
"What’s evident from this recounting is the money and opportunity nowadays for specialist turf horses, something I noted in this space here in March. Last year, 17% of all flat races in the United States were contested on turf compared to 5% in 1991, and the trend seems to be continuing, especially at the premier meets. Dana Byerly of “Hello Race Fans!” recently said that 38.5% of all races at the recently-concluded Del Mar meet were on turf, and researcher Chris Rossi told me via a private message on Twitter that the numbers were the same at Saratoga. “[There were] 245 [races] on dirt, 153 on turf. Those numbers exclude jump races. Fifty races were taken off the turf. If they run on the turf, 203 turf races, 195 dirt races.” Last year, 39% of all graded races in the U.S. were on turf in 2017. That number would increase by including Canada, where racing at Woodbine is exclusively on turf or all-weather."
How far does $3,000 go at the Keeneland sales you ask? "Cherokee Summer" is another two year old winner, 2nd time out, for Sales Agent Kim Smith and trainer Terry Eoff, October 2018. ALSO, two year old winner "He’s A Ranger", a $1500 Keeneland sales purchase by Agent Kim Smith for Trainer Terry Eoff, still running and winning 4 years later with over $93,000 in earnings - and Stakes Placed!
