Smashing win for Saracosa
Saracosa ran out the smashing winner of her maiden for Brendan Walsh on Friday, drawing clear to win by close to nine lengths.
Brought along steadily by Walsh and her owner-breeders Chad Schumer and Meritage Ventures, Saracosa has shown promise throughout her brief career to date, running placed at both Churchill Downs and Keeneland prior to Friday’s win at Ellis Park.
The Bernardini filly was purchased in utero by Chad Schumer for $105,000. She is the first foal out of Homeschooling, a $500,000 yearling herself who is a Medaglia d’Oro granddaughter of blue hen Korveya, the dam of Bosra Sham and Hector Protector among others.
Homeschooling has a yearling colt by Shanghai Bobby catalogued as Lot 2650 at the Keeneland September Sale and a filly foal by Shackleford.
