MITOLE FILLY - IN TRAINING
What’s hotter than a first-year sire? Nothing, except when that freshman sire is what Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen called “The fastest horse I ever trained.” MITOLE set a new standard on the racetrack as the only 4-time G1-winning male on dirt in 2019, including the Breeders Cup Sprint-G1, Met Mile-G1, Churchill Downs S.-G1, and the Forego S.-G1 (where he also set a new stakes record), all on his way to earning more than $3 million. No wonder MITOLE was the landslide winner of the 2019 Eclipse Award for Champion Male Sprinter and a Horse of the Year finalist. Now he’s just as hot in the breeding shed: with 438 mares bred in his first two seasons at stud combined, those first foals made him a Top 4 Freshman Sire by Sale Average last fall with 15 six-figure sales, and this summer the yearlings are just as hot with prices such as $350k, $250k, $160k, $140k, $130k, etc. etc.
And looky here: this lovely filly is a half-sister to a stakes horse! First dam Secret Union (by DIXIE UNION) is a black-type runner herself, and once retired promptly produced multiple race winner and stakes-placed Longclaw (by KITTEN’S JOY). Secret Union herself is out of yet another stakes horse, and is a half-sister to multiple stakes winner DEPUTIFORMER. A page full of black type!
