Wicked Strong filly fires bullet at OBS Under Tack show
March 7, 2019
A filly from the first crop of Grade 1 winner Wicked Strong worked an eighth-mile in a swift :9 4/5 seconds [WATCH] during Thursday’s session of the Under Tack Show in preparation for next week’s OBS March Sale, which will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 12 and 13.
The bay filly’s clocking matched the fastest of the day at the distance. Cataloged as hip No. 134 and consigned by Mayberry Farm, agent, the Kentucky-bred is scheduled to sell on Tuesday.
The filly is out of the Saint Ballado mare Diva Girl, who has produced eight runners, all winners, to date.
Wicked Strong also had another very strong work on Thursday from another filly, hip No. 110, who went a quarter-mile in :20 4/5 seconds [WATCH] with an impressive gallop out.
Consigned by de Meric Sales, the filly is out of the Street Cry mare Cry at My Wedding, who’s sister is the dam of Classic-placed Social Inclusion.
Wicked Strong, who covered nearly 400 mares in his first three seasons, is one of six Spendthrift stallions with first 2-year-olds this year that are part of the farm’s “Safe Bet” program for 2019. The Safe Bet guarantees that the stallion will have one graded or group winner in 2019 or the breeder will be completely relieved of stud fees for the 2020 foal.
