Lotta Kim, Dam Of Rachel Alexandra, Bred To Bolt d’Oro

Lotta Kim, the dam of 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, was bred to Spendthrift Farm‘s first-year stallion Bolt d’Oro on Tuesday, Spendthrift announced on social media.

Owned by Dede McGehee’s Heaven Trees Farm, Lotta Kim’s five foals to race are all winners. Chief among them is Hall of Famer Rachel Alexandra, whose five Grade 1 victories included the Preakness Stakes, Haskell Invitational Stakes, Woodward Stakes, and Kentucky Oaks. In retirement, Rachel Alexandra became a Grade 1 producer herself when Rachel’s Valentina took the G1 Spinaway Stakes as a homebred for Stonestreet Farm.

Lotta Kim, an 18-year-old daughter of Roar, is also the dam of Grade 3-placed Dolphus.

On her own accord, Lotta Kim won two of four career starts as a homebred for the late Dolphus Morrison, winning the Tiffany Lass Stakes and finishing second in the G2 Golden Rod Stakes.

Though this was the first meeting between Lotta Kim and Bolt d’Oro, it’s a familiar pedigree cross. Bolt d’Oro is a son of Medaglia d’Oro, who is himself the sire of Rachel Alexandra. A subsequent mating between Lotta Kim and Medaglia d’Oro produced Samantha Nicole, who was a two-time winner that sold to Stonestreet for $700,000.

Bolt d’Oro, a 4-year-old, stands at Spendthrift Farm in Lexington, Ky., for an advertised fee of $25,000.

He retired with four wins in eight career starts, highlighted by victories in the G1 Del Mar Futurity and FrontRunner Stakes, as well as the G2 San Felipe Stakes. He is out of the winning A.P. Indy mare Globe Trot.
