The following feature was originally published in the Paulick Report Special, our print edition distributed at the Fasig-Tipton Florida Sale
Hip 33 Swift Humor (b c by Distorted Humor x People’s Princess, by Meadowlake)
By leading sire Distorted Humor, who has sired Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Funny Cide, Whitney Stakes winner Commentator, Travers Stakes winner Flower Alley, and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Drosselmeyer, among his 110 stakes winners. This colt is out of G3 stakes winner People’s Princess, one of three full siblings out of the Cormorant mare Cassowary that won stakes. People’s Princess has already produced G2 winner Carolyn’s Cat (by Forestry) and a Speightstown colt named Griffin Gate who has won more than 62 million yen in Japan ($709,163) without picking up a race that is recognized as international black type.
Hip 85 All Most Famous (b c by Unbridled’s Song x Wild Gams, by Forest Wildcat)
By a sire of horses with unquestionable talent, this colt is out of the three-time graded stakes winner Wild Gams, a full sister to stakes winner Diamond Wildcat. Both are out of the stakes winner Diamonds and Legs, a daughter of the rugged sire Quiet American. There is great toughness and speed in the depths of this pedigree.
Hip 103 (dk b c by Lemon Drop Kid x Burnish, by Menifee)
A son of Belmont Stakes winner and leading sire Lemon Drop Kid (Kingmambo), this colt is out of G3 Miss Preakness Stakes winner Burnish, a half-sister to stakes winners Bright Launch (G2 Saratoga Special) and Bright Valour (G3 Hanshin Cup). This is a fast, precocious family with class.
Hip 124 (dk b f by A.P. Indy x Foxy Danseur, by Mr. Greeley)
From the standpoint of scarcity, this filly will be a premium, as she is from the last crop of the splendid sire A.P. Indy, a classic winner, Horse of the Year, and leading sire and broodmare sire. There won’t be any more of these. This filly is out of stakes winner Foxy Danseur, a racer with high speed by the important stallion Mr. Greeley. Foxy Danseur won a pair of stakes and was second and third in G3 events. This is her first foal.
Hip 128 b c by Elusive Quality x Grace Anatomy, by Aldebaran)
By a leading sire who has gotten horses of championship quality like Kentucky Derby winner Smarty Jones. This colt is the first foal out of Grace Anatomy, who ran third in the G1 Alcibiades and second in the G3 Santa Ysabel. The dam is a full sister to the stakes-placed Position A, and their second dam is G1 winner Plenty of Grace (Yellow Ribbon Stakes).
