Grade 1 winner Archarcharch was represented by his first foal on Saturday evening when a filly was born at September Farm in Versailles, KY.
The dark bay or brown filly is out of the Kingmambo mare Enfiraaj and was bred by Robert and Val Yagos, who campaigned Archarcharch on the racetrack.
“She's an impressive filly – strong foal, good bone and has been perfect so far,” said Robert Yagos. “You couldn't ask for a horse with more heart than Archarcharch, and obviously he was very talented. We wanted to support his stallion career, and we made it a point to go to the sales and buy some quality young mares that were due early and would match up well with him. Enfiraaj bred to him last Valentine's Day.”
Archarcharch, who bred 159 mares in his first book at stud in 2012, broke his maiden in the six-furlong Sugar Bowl S. at Fair Grounds as a 2-year-old before going on to win the 2011 Arkansas Derby (G1) and Southwest S. (G3) at Oaklawn Park at 3. The striking dark bay son of Arch retired with earnings of $832,744.
Archarcharch, a participant in Spendthrift's Share The Upside program, will stand his second season in 2013 for a fee of $10,000 stands and nurses.
