Toast To Vino Rosso: Filly Out Of Shaken ‘Gets Better Every Day’

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 time around, we’re looking at a filly out of the Grade 2-placed Uncle Mo mare Shaken.

This filly was born on Feb. 7, bred in Kentucky by Mark Stansell and boarded at Waggoner Farm in Lexington.

“She’s exceptional,” Stansell said last week. “I just flew in from Texas, and we’ll be carrying her home tomorrow. She’s a very exceptional filly. It seems like every day, she gets better.”

The filly is the second foal out of Shaken, whose family includes Grade 2-placed Sway Away and Grade 3-placed Knights Cross.

Stansell said the decision to send Shaken to Vino Rosso wasn’t complicated. He expected the way the stallion proved himself on the racetrack would make his foals commercially attractive.

“Vino Rosso was a champion,” he said. “He’s going to be very commercially sought-after horse. If you have a good individual, he was made on the track, so I expect his foals will be well-received this November.”

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.
