Daughter of $12,000 mare bags G2 Pocahontas Stakes
“She’s [Cristina’s Journey] a very good filly,” Romans told the TDN, “she was pressed today and she drew off clear and looked good to me.”
Cristina’s Journey could be next seen in the Alcibiades Stakes (G1) at Keeneland on October 3.
Bought for $37,000 by Romans at the 2013 Keeneland September Sale, Cristina’s Journey is the fourth foal out of Toss The Feather, also the dam of multiple winner Ives Hill. By Dixie Union, Toss The Feather is out of stakes winner Dancing Mirage and from the further family of top sprinter Kinsale King.
Toss The Feather was purchased by Chad Schumer as agent for $12,000 in foal to Even The Score from Bona Terra Stud at the 2012 Keeneland November Sale.
Hummingbird Kiss, the dam of Milehigh Butterfly, was purchased at this year’s Keeneland January Sale from Four Star Sales in foal to Scat Daddy. In addition to Milehigh Butterfly, the daughter of Smart Strike has also bred the stakes-placed Kiss In The Forest.
