Welcome to Herringswell, Kids..

Meet some of our 2009 2-year-olds...

Angel's Cove
(bay filly)

By More than Ready, producer of our very own Saucey Evening. More than Ready's offspring seem to do very well over the turf.

You probably don't know: Angel's Cove is out of Minge Cove, who is a half sister to Mint. Who is Mint? The horse that dead-heated Secret Firm in the 1998 Amsterdam at Saratoga.

Cherokee Empire
(brown colt)

You may not know: Is a full-brother to the familiar Cherokee Focus, who won four races.

Embraceable Blue (bay filly)

By the Canadian, Dance With Ravens.

Interesting: She is out of Hugsie, who is a half-sister to millionaire and juvenile filly champion Storm Song.

Fugitive Angel (bay filly)

She wins the award for most ties to Herringswell.

Try this one out: Her dam is Screening, who is out of Recording. Recording is a half sister to stakes performers Deal Making and Smart Bid. Recording is out of 1993 Diana Handicap winner, Ratings, who Graham galloped while working for Jonathan Sheppard. How about that?

Quechee (gray colt)

By Preakness and Belmont hero Afleet Alex.

More ties: Out of Tarika, who is a full-sister to Tikkanean. Tikkanean won the BC Turf for Jonathan Pease.

Smokey Slope (bay colt)

Another Classy Augustin:
Closely related to Alice Springs, winner of the All Along Stakes. Alice Springs also finished second in the prestigious Beverly D. for Mr. Strawbridge.

Source of Humor (bay filly)

That's exciting: A full-sister to GI winner Commentator.

Straight Talk (gray colt)

Been around the block: Is a half brother to the productive handicap horse, Temporary Saint.

Taking A Chance (gray filly)

With the big girls: Is closely related to our Miss Lombardi.

Zilva (bay filly)

Come together: She is out of a sister to Smart Seattle's dam.

Now that you've learned more about some of our babies, catch up to our level of excitement. We are looking forward to these guys and gals making it to the races.
