A first-crop Vino Rosso colt out of Maggie Maggie at Elm Tree Farm.
Throughout the breeding season, the Paulick Report will be sharing photos of foals from the first crop of Spendthrift Farm‘s Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Vino Rosso in the “Toast to Vino Rosso” series.
This time around, we’re going back to Elm Tree Farm in Paris, Ky. to visit a colt out of the Majesticperfection mare Maggie Maggie.
This is a Feb. 20 foal, bred by Nancy Shuford, from the family of Grade 3 winner Poker Player.
Elm Tree Farm’s Jody Huckabay has been a big believer in Vino Rosso from the jump. Speaking with Huckabay earlier this year, he said he had five foaling out on the farm this season, between his own and for clients. He was so impressed by the first couple that hit the ground in the early months of the year, he bought a couple more seasons to the stallion in 2021.
Huckabay said he was big on the leg Vino Rosso was putting onto his foals. Looking at the scope of the stallion himself and the other foals we’ve seen in this series, it’s clear Vino Rosso is defining his stamp quickly.
Vino Rosso, a 6-year-old son of Curlin, stands at Spendthrift Farm for an advertised fee of $25,000.
Vino Rosso won won six of 15 starts and earned $4,803,125 on the racetrack. In addition to his signature Breeders’ Cup Classic score, the stallion picked up victories in the Grade 1 Gold Cup at Santa Anita Stakes, and the G2 Wood Memorial Stakes.
