G1 winner Known Agenda sires first foal
January 9, 2023
Spendthrift Farm’s Known Agenda, the 2021 Florida Derby (G1) winner by Curlin, sired his first reported foal on Jan. 7 when a filly was born at Glendalough Farm in Lexington, KY.
Bred by Phillips Farm LLC, the flashy chestnut filly is out of the Henny Hughes mare Sunandsea, a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Sailors Sunset.
“We are just overjoyed with this filly,” said Joshua Phillips of Phillips Farm. “She’s exceptionally well-muscled, has a nice hip and a lot of leg underneath her. Just a physically strong individual like the good Curlins. We looked at a lot of different stallions for this mare and Known Agenda stamped this filly beautifully.”
On the track, Known Agenda broke his maiden as a two-year-old before going on to capture his biggest victory in the prestigious Florida Derby by 2 ¾ lengths at Gulfstream as a three-year-old.
An earner of $641,700, Known Agenda became the first Florida Derby winner for his sire Curlin. He is also a Grade One winner by a Grade One winner and out of a Grade One winner, as his dam Byrama captured the 2013 Vanity S. (G1) on the main track at Hollywood Park.
Known Agenda is set to stand his second season at stud for a fee of $10,000 S&N.
