Multiple G1 winner Mor Spirit gets first mare in foal
March 8, 2019
Spendthrift Farm’s new stallion Mor Spirit, winner of the Los Alamitos Futurity (G1) at two and Met Mile (G1) at four, had his first mare check in foal earlier this week.
Set’n on Ready, a two-year-old stakes winner on the racetrack by More Than Ready, hails from the immediate family of multiple graded stakes winner Comic Strip and Grade 2 winner Silver Comic. She is owned and boarded by Wynnstay Farm in Winchester, KY.
On the track, Mor Spirit broke his maiden as a two-year-old by 4 ¼ lengths at Santa Anita before capturing the Los Alamitos Futurity (G1) to close out his juvenile campaign. He opened his three-year-old season right where he left off, winning the Robert B. Lewis S. (G3) at Santa Anita. Mor Spirit also finished runner-up in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) and San Felipe S. (G2) at three.
As a four-year-old, Mor Spirit went on a three-race win streak and established himself as one of racing’s best milers, most notably capturing the prestigious Metropolitan H. (G1) at Belmont with a 117 Beyer – the fastest Beyer recorded up to a mile in 2017.
