OUR RACING BLOODLINES

Bloodlines is the term traditionally used to denote the transmission of inheritance. These pages describe the “bloodlines” we are using in our breeding and racing program.We have bred the daughters of Street Cry and Distorted Humor to stallions such as Invasor, Awesome Again, Freud and Jump Start. Please read our website pages carefully for they are the heart of what we are trying to accomplish at Bloodlines Racing Partnerships.

MARES OF BLOODLINES RACING

VERY FUNNY

Very Funny’s first two foals are Champion Invading Humor and Distorted Beauty. Invading Humor won the John Hettinger Stakes in 2014, the Mt. Vernon Stakes and the Ticonderoga Stakes in 2015, setting Stakes records in both the Mt. Vernon and Ticonderoga. Invading Humor was named NYB Champion Turf Female of 2015.

Distorted Beauty was second in the Pebbles Stakes in 2014, third in the Intercontinental Stakes in 2015 and second to full sister Invading Humor in the 2015 Ticonderoga Stakes.

Very Funny is a daughter of Distorted Humor, the #1 North American Broodmare sire in 2014 and is #1 in the World as of September, 2017. Distorted Humor is one of the world’s top sires, producing horses such as Kentucky Derby winner Funny Cide, Belmont Stakes winner Drosselmeyer, Commentator, and Flower Alley. Since our mare, Very Funny, has the same father as these horses, she is a half sister to them and to all of Distorted Humor's 134, and counting, stakes winners. Very Funny was in the Adena Springs 2 year old-in-training sale in 2006. Of the 114 horses catalogued in that sale, Very Funny was the sale’s topper, selling for $400,000. As you would expect from a horse that sold for $400,000, Very Funny has an impeccable conformation. She is a beautiful chestnut mare with good size and scope and should be able to continue to pass those qualities along to her offspring. Her first two babies, both by Invasor, are good indications of that.

STREET SINGER

Our mare, Street Singer, is a daughter of the sire, Street Cry. Street Cry was one of the world’s leading sires. In his first three crops Street Cry had already sired 11 Grade 1 winners including Kentucky Derby winner, Street Sense, record-breaking Street Boss, and the incomparable mare and Champion, Zenyatta. Unfortunately, Street Cry died in 2014. His influence will continue to be felt through his sons and daughters, such as Street Singer, as they complete their racing careers and head to the breeding sheds.Street Singer (our mare), having the same father as all these horses, is genetically a half sister to them. This includes Street Sense, Street Boss and Zenyatta. This is an exciting gene pool to be in! Street Singer is a dark bay filly and, as you can see in this photo, she has nice size and conformation.

An interesting note: in 2005, both Street Singer and Zenyatta were sold at auction. Street Singer was 9 months old when she sold at the Keeneland Breeding Stock Sale for $75,000. Zenyatta was 17 months old and sold in the Keeneland September Yearling sale for a price of $60,000.

Street Singer has had two foals to race and one beginning her career in 2017 - Our Philly Girl.

Grape Cottage

Grape Cottage is a daughter of the great international sire Street Cry. Please read about him on our Street Cry page. As a 2 year old, Grape Cottage won a MSW race in her second start, then was beaten by 3 1/4 lengths in the $150,000 Jessamine Stakes at Keeneland in her third start, then beaten by 1 1/4 lengths in the Caressing Handicap in her fourth start. While never winning a stakes race, Grape Cottage demonstrated class as a racehorse.

Grape Cottage's dam is Mirta, a daughter of the influential sire, Theatrical. Mirta's dam is the G1 winning Argentina race mare, Miss Carlotita, who foaled 2 U.S. Stakes Winners - Sudana (course record setter at Gulfstream Park), and Dowty ($961,311 and 3rd in the Breeders Cup Classic).

Mirta produced 6 foals, 5 of them winners, including Tatuto, who was 3 times Stakes Placed (two of them in Graded Stakes) in S. America.

Grape Cottage has had one foal to enter a Bloodlines Racing Partnership, the New York Opportunity filly of 2017. Please refer to the NY Opportunity page for more information on this Partnership.
