First foal is a colt for G1 winner Paddy O'Prado


Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Grade 1 winner Paddy O’Prado sired his first foal on Sunday when a chestnut colt was born at B. Wayne Hughes' Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, KY.

The colt is out of the young Group 1-winning Argentinian mare True Passion (Arg), by Orpen, and was bred by Spendthrift Farm, LLC.

“He's an athletic foal with a lot of substance,” said Ned Toffey, Spendthrift general manager. “It's a great start for Paddy O'Prado as a sire.”

Paddy O'Prado, who bred 142 mares at Spendthrift in his first book at stud in 2012, was a five-time graded stakes winner and earner of $1,721,297 on the track. He was an Eclipse Finalist as a 3-year-old in 2010 after capturing four graded stakes wins, including the Secretariat S. (G1). Paddy O'Prado also placed in the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Blue Grass S. (G1), and was a Grade 1 performer on all surfaces.

By El Prado out of the Grade 2-winning mare Fun House, Paddy O'Prado will stand his second season in 2013 at Spendthrift for a fee of $15,000 stands and nurses. He is a participant in Spendthrift's “Share The Upside” program.
