We recently recommended the acquisition of Tiz Emily and Jill as a broodmare prospect for our friends at Wasabi Ventures Stables.
Tiz Emily and Jill put together a career record of (33) 4-3-9, earning $146,070 while racing from 3- through 7-years-old. She broke her maiden in her second start as a sophomore going 5-1/2 furlongs in a Pimlico maiden special weight, took a 6-furlong Laurel allowance at 5, and scored another pair of victories at 6.
Tiz Emily and Jill is one of five winners from six foals to race out of her unraced dam, Lakefront. Those other four winners include the stakes winner Dattts Our Girl, and Lakefront also has an unraced 3-year-old filly of 2019 named Nellie Nellie (by Shanghai Bobby and breezing regularly towards her debut in Kentucky), a yearling colt by Speightster (who was a $110,000 Keeneland November weanling), and she was bred to American Freedom for 2019.
Lakefront is herself a half-sister to the stakes winner Sluice (by Seeking the Gold, and who went on to produce Grade 1 winner Mushka (by Empire Maker)), to Flying Spur (by Giant’s Causeway, and who finished 3rd in the Kentucky Oaks-G1), to Front Range (by Giant’s Causeway, and who was Grade 2-placed), and to the stakes-placed winner In Excelsis. They are all out of the four-time Grade 1 winner Lakeway (by Seattle Slew).
Lakeway’s unbeaten dam, Milliardaire, was a $2.7 million yearling purchase who was a full-sister to the $2.2 million yearling purchase and Grade 1 winner Saratoga Six. Milliardaire was also a half-sister to Group 1 winner Dunbeath. Their dam, Priceless Fame, was a full-sister to Kentucky Derby-G1 and Belmont-G1 winner Bold Forbes, and she set a record when selling as a broodmare for $6 million in 1984.
Nellie L, the granddam of Priceless Fame and Bold Forbes, won the Kentucky Oaks and the Acorn, and was out of Champion 2-year-old filly Nellie Flag, who, in turn, was out of Champion 3-year-old filly Nellie Morse.
She will be bred for the first time in 2019, and visits first-year, classic-placed Maryland stallion Irish War Cry in a Housatonic Recommended Mating that you can read about here.
