Toast To Vino Rosso: Colt Out Of On My Way Bred On Close Cross To King Zachary

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.

This week’s subject is a Jan. 29 colt by Vino Rosso out of the winning Giant’s Causeway mare On My Way. He was bred in Kentucky by the partnership of Manganaro Bloodstock, Iapetus Racing, and Jayson Taylor Equine.

On My Way is the dam of three winners from four starters, with the most notable of that group being Grade 3 winner King Zachary. That’s a son of Curlin, just like Vino Rosso is a son of Curlin, making it a close cross to a proven formula.

The colt is also a half-brother to Happier, who wired a nice optional claiming field at Santa Anita Park last month.

Members of the colt’s extended family include Grade 2 winner Gaudeamus and Grade 2-placed Leo’s Luckyman.

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.
