Filly. Goldencents - Miss Baby Betty (Warrior's Reward)

Keeneland September Yearling Sale
Auction Price: $15,000

 

We went to the Keeneland September Yearling sale with our trainer Randy Morse, focusing on Books 5 and 6 of the sale. Our goal was to look beyond the breeding and focus on finding yearlings that had strong physical conformation and were athletes. By doing this, we believed we would find great value - we're looking for a racehorse, not necessarily a stallion or broodmare. 

What We Liked About Her...

- We saw plenty of horses go through the ring at Keeneland, with big price tags. Don't be fooled by her purchase price. She's a big, gorgeous filly that carried herself with lots of class throughout the process. 

- She has a beautiful, straight walk with a stride that covers plenty of ground. This is a Top 3 factor for trainer, Randy Morse.

- Her breeding alone was worth the $15K price tag, with some really solid production on the dam side. Our filly's sibling (Upstart) has made one start and finished 3rd at Saratoga this summer. He was a $410K purchase by Peter Brant, so they obviously thought very highly of him. 

- Other production on the dam side includes stakes winners Sweet Whiskey and Doc's Doll. What we like most about their win production is that a lot of it occurred in their 2yo seasons, so not only are they getting to the track, but they're getting to the track early.

In-Depth Pedigree Analysis

St. Olaf Rose - f. Goldencents x Miss Baby Betty (Warrior’s Reward)

  • Warrior’s Reward has been a stellar broodmare sire, with his daughters producing 12.9% stakes winners from 62 starters

  • The cross of Into Mischief over Warrior’s Reward has produced 6 winners and 2 stakes winners in 6 starters, led by graded stakes winner Highly Motivated

  • Goldencents is linebred to his tail-female family 4m via his grandsire Harlan’s Holiday

  • Miss Baby Betty is a half-sister to GSW Sweet Whiskey, whose sire Old Fashioned is from the same family 4m as Goldencents and is by family 4m’s Unbridled’s Song, creating parallels to this filly’s pedigree despite coming from different sirelines 

  • Goldencents has produced graded stakes winner That’s Right from this Lowe family, and his top earner By My Standards is also from this same “G2a” mitochondrial haplotype


There is a lot to like about this filly’s pedigree from top to bottom. Goldencents has been a solid value sire, producing 62.4% winners and 3.8% stakes winners in his career, including horses such as G1 winner Going to Vegas and graded stakes winners By My Standards and Phantom Currency. Goldencents is another stallion with linebreeding to his tail-female line - his grandsire Harlan’s Holiday is also a member of family 4m, a huge stallion family that also includes horses such as Unbridled’s Song and Dixie Union. Interestingly, his damsire Banker’s Gold was also bred on a similar pattern, being from family 1l and by family 1n’s Forty Niner. Family 1l also shows up in the bottom of St. Olaf Rose’s pedigree in El Prado, the grandsire of Warrior’s Reward. 

 

Miss Baby Betty did not win in three starts, but did hit the board in two of her races, including a third-place effort on debut at Arlington Park as a two-year-old. She is a half-sister to graded stakes winner Sweet Whiskey, who was by a stallion in Old Fashioned that, like Goldencents, was from family 4m and linebred to that family via his sire, Unbridled’s Song. 

 

Miss Baby Betty is a daughter of Warrior’s Reward, a talented son of Medaglia d’Oro who was multiple graded stakes placed at three and won the G1 Carter Handicap at four. As a broodmare sire, he has been promising so far, with 66.1% winners and an incredibly exciting 12.9% stakes winners from 62 starters to date. 33.9% of starters out of his daughters have been winners at age two. 

 

The cross of Goldencents with Miss Baby Betty gets an “A++” from TrueNicks, and it’s hard to find better statistics from a small sample size - in 6 starters out of mares by Warrior’s Reward by Into Mischief or his sons, all 6 are winners and two are stakes winners. Goldencents’ only starter out of a mare by Warrior’s Reward is the mare Fire of Gold, a very solid claiming horse who has started 29 times with 5 wins and 7 additional in-the-money finishes. She’s earned just over $78k in her career. Goldencents has also had success with another son of Medaglia d’Oro, producing stakes winner Jackpot Baby out of a mare by Violence. 

 

St. Olaf Rose is a member of family 9f, which means she has the “G2a” mitochondrial haplotype. She traces back to the 19th century mare Astrology, who is also the tail-female ancestor of horses such as Eclipse champion West Coast and G1 winner Get Stormy. Goldencents has produced graded stakes winner That’s Right from a different branch of family 9f, as well as his top earner By My Standards from the genetically related family 9.
