Chad Brown unveils the first foal out of his champion Dayatthespa (City Zip), a filly named AVA MALONE (Curlin), in this spot. Dayatthespa captured a trio of Grade I wins and an Eclipse award during her tenure for Brown, including the 2014 GI Breeders’ Cup F/M Turf. The New York-bred retired with 11 victories from 18 starts and earnings of $2,288,892 at the end of her 2014 championship season and was purchased by Stonestreet Stables for $2.1 million at that term’s Fasig-Tipton November Sale. Arnaud Delacour unveils another firster related to a Brown-trained champion in Tenacious Jewel (Medaglia d’Oro). The dark bay is out of MGSW Bizzy Caroline (Afleet Alex), who is a half sister to Eclipse winner and Keeneland November topper Lady Eli (Divine Park). This is also the family of GISW Sweet Loretta (Tapit), MGSW millionaire Tejano Run (Tejano) and stakes-winning juvenile and ‘TDN Rising Star’ Cruel Intention (Smiling Tiger). TJCIS PPs.

Stonestreet Stables is represented by another well-related firster in this test in PASSION FLOWER (Tapit), a half-sister to MGISW and multi-millionaire Stopchargingmaria (Tale of the Cat). Stonestreet purchased their MSW & GSP dam Exotic Bloom (Montbrook) for $500,000 carrying a foal by Quality Road at the 2013 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. At that time, Stopchargingmaria was just a MGSW & MGISP juvenile and she would go on to win six more graded events–three of which were Grade Is, including the Breeders’ Cup Distaff–and earn over $3 million. She summoned $4.4 million from Mandy Pope carrying a foal by Tapit at the recent Fasig-Tipton November Sale and Pope also purchased her first foal, a weanling Pioneerof the Nile filly, for $1.9 million at the same auction.
