Dublin, winner of Saratoga's Hopeful S. (G1) at two, sired his first foal when a filly was born on Jan. 18 at Newtown Anner Stud Farm in Millbrook, NY.
Bred by Jim Moloney, the chestnut filly is out of the Untuttable mare Heaven's Grace, a full sister to G2 winner This Ones for Phil.
“She's a strong early foal with great bone and great conformation,” said Morris Reagan, owner of Newtown Anner Stud.
On the track, Dublin scored his biggest win in the Hopeful a month after impressively breaking his maiden in 1:09 2/5 at Saratoga. His Hopeful time of 1:23 2/5 was faster than that of his champion sire Afleet Alex, who also captured the Hopeful five years prior. At three, Dublin placed in all three major Kentucky Derby preps at Oaklawn Park, including the Arkansas Derby (G1), and retired with earnings of $438,949.
Dublin, who bred 102 mares in his first book at stud in 2012, hails from the Storm Bird mare Classy Mirage, a Grade 1 winner and five-time graded winner in New York. Dublin stands as a Spendthrift stallion at Keane Stud in Amenia, NY for a fee of $7,500 stands and nurses, and is a participant in Spendthrift's “Share the Upside” and “Breed Secure” programs.
