Toast To Vino Rosso: Colt Out Of Differ Brings ‘A Lot Of Size And Scope’

Throughout the breeding season, the Paulick Report will be sharing photos of foals from the first crop of Spendthrift Farm‘s Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Vino Rosso in the “Toast to Vino Rosso” series.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve spoken to several breeders about what Vino Rosso brings to the table as a stallion, and plenty of them have said they wanted to add some leg to their mare.

We’ve got another example of that, with this colt out of the winning Pulpit mare Differ. He was born on March 15 at Burleson Farm, and his second dam is the Grade 3-placed stakes winner Contrast.

“We’re extremely happy with him,” said breeder Lyn Burleson. “He’s got a lot of leg, got a lot of size and scope, really good hip. Just a really nice foal.”

Burleson said the decision to send Differ to Vino Rosso was swayed by the stallion’s generous leg, and what that could contribute to the ensuing foal.

“She mated well with him, and their physical types matched up well,” he said. “She’s a Pulpit mare with a really big hip, not so much leg, and he was a scopier type of horse, so we thought they’d compliment each other well.

“He’s got more of Vino Rosso’s leg and scope, but he’s the color of the mare,” he continued.

Vino Rosso, a 6-year-old son of Curlin, stands at Spendthrift Farm for an advertised fee of $25,000.

Vino Rosso won won six of 15 starts and earned $4,803,125 on the racetrack. In addition to his signature Breeders’ Cup Classic score, the stallion picked up victories in the Grade 1 Gold Cup at Santa Anita Stakes, and the G2 Wood Memorial Stakes.
