This independent foal is Kentucky bred by proven sire Northern Afleet. While younger stallions come and go, 23 year-old Northern Afleet continues to be a, nationally recognized, significant producer of quality runners. He has produced 28 Graded stakes winners, including the 2015 Graded stakes winning, three year-old colt, World Approval ($389,050). He has produced 71 black-type winners, 129 black-type horses and 11 Grade I winners, including five millionaires. In 2015 Northern Afleet was ranked in the top 50 Leading Sires List in North America with more than $4.6 million in earnings.
The bay foal’s dam is first time mother, Hallie Ruth (by Pleasant Tap out of Greenfinder by Buckfinder). A 2007 chestnut mare, Hallie was bred, then campaigned by Saddleback Stables during her racing career in 2010- 2014. Our durable and big-hearted Hallie raced in Illinois and Kentucky with an uncommon 50 starts, 3-6-8, with $43,571 in earnings.
“It is a fact of human nature that we take what we have for granted while being seduced by the apparent potential of the unexplored.”
One of the many ways in which this truism finds form in the bloodstock world is the marginalization of good stallions simply because they are getting older, as the allure of untried youngsters blinds breeders to the proven merit of the older brigade. Bill Oppenheim (Bloodstock Consultant, TDN)
We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to own a portion of this young filly, from a proven and established sire, and be a meaningful part of her development and career. “It is the allure of discovering that special horse, who is unnaturally driven to find the finish line first, that makes this game so compelling.” Mike Moore (Saddleback Stables)
