Delighted to have a Phoenix of Spain filly out of Centime, a stakes producing sister to Group 1 winners Ticker Tape and Brando.
Centime will now visit Far Above.
We look forward to supporting both stallions heavily with quality mares like Centime in 2021 and beyond. pic.twitter.com/rI8JOpmNpr

Exciting filly for GHF by Kantharos out of Inaugurate, about two weeks old. Goes back to one of our oldest families and excited to have a filly. We bred Inaugurate and recently repurchased her from good friend George Krikorian. She ends up being a 6th generation homebred. pic.twitter.com/U5yZEkzs20

Bonus Cute Animal of the Week:
Every week we feature another adorable animal in addition to our cute foals. This week is a dog showing he doesn’t need a human to throw his favorite ball – he’s got it taken care of.
