Champion I’ll Have Another’s First U.S.-Sired Foals Born In California

Champion I’ll Have Another’s first two North American foals have arrived. The first was dropped Jan. 14, 2020 at Rancho San Miguel in California. The 2020 filly is out of the winning mare Year of Light by Event of the Year. The filly was bred by Jacqueline Bousquet and Dr. Jeaneen Metzler.

She was followed shortly on Jan. 15, 2020 by a filly born at Ballena Vista Farm, also in California, out of the Tribal Rule broodmare Jennifer’s Joy bred by Harold and Pamela Tillema and Richard Tillema. Jennifer’s Joy is from the immediate family of millionaire California-bred Richard’s Boy. Richard’s Boy is a multiple stakes winner and Grade 1-placed.

The 2020 fillies are from the first domestic crop of 3 year old champion I’ll Have Another, winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. I’ll Have Another began his breeding career in Japan at Big Red Farm and was repatriated by Ballena Vista Farm for stud duty in California.

“I love the profile, bone and body on this very pretty 4-hour-old filly,” Ballena Vista Farm manager Miguel Jimenez said of the Jennifer’s Joy filly. “She’s as good a foal as I’ve seen in my 30-plus years of raising racehorses.”
