Breeders' Cup champ Court Vision sires first foal


Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Five-time Grade 1 winner & Breeders' Cup champ Court Vision had his first reported foal arrive when a filly was born on Jan. 20 at Hill 'n' Dale Farm in Aurora, Ontario.

Bred by Knob Hill Stable, the dark bay or brown filly is out of the stakes-producing mare Panteccaria, by San Romano, and is a half-sister to $386,114 earner Nicki Knew, a stakes winner of one leg of the Canadian Triple Tiara at Woodbine.

“She's a big, lovely, correct filly with a ton of bone. She was 127 pounds at birth, and just beautiful,” said Glenn Sikura of Hill 'n' Dale Canada. “I've been doing this on a full-time basis for over 30 years, and I don't get easily excited. But this is what a foal is supposed to look like. We're thrilled.”

Court Vision enjoyed a stellar career on the racetrack that culminated with a win in the 2011 Breeders' Cup Mile (G1) in his final start. He also won the Hollywood Derby (G1), Shadwell Turf Mile (G1), Gulfstream Park Turf H. (G1) and Woodbine Mile (G1), Aside from his five Grade 1 triumphs, the multimillionaire also owns graded wins in the Remsen S. (G2) and Iroquois S. (G3) on dirt as a juvenile. He retired with earnings of $2,656,435.

A son of Gulch, Court Vision is out of a half-sister to champion sire and leading sire of sires A.P. Indy. He stands at Park Stud in Ontario as property of Spendthrift Farm Canada, and is a participant in Spendthrift's “Share The Upside” program. His 2013 fee is $10,000 stands and nurses.
