The Beautiful Balance

Balance won five stakes including three grade I races—the Santa Anita Oaks, Las Virgenes Stakes, and Santa Margarita Invitational Handicap. Raced by John and Jerry Amerman, she was trained by David Hofmanns.

A millionaire, Balance was retired in November of 2007 as a 4-year-old to Dr. and Mrs. John Chandler’s Mill Ridge Farm near Lexington, Ky.
By Kentucky Derby winner Thunder Gulch and produced from the 2008 Broodmare of the Year Vertigineux by Kris S., Balance is a half-sister to Zenyatta.

Juan Gonzalez handles Balance at the Poplar Grove division of Mill Ridge. “Balance is the leader,” said Gonzalez. “The other mares knew something was up when I got her ready today. She is a nice mare.”

The first foal produced from Balance, an A.P. Indy colt, became the highest priced yearling of the 2010 Keeneland September yearling sale when the bay colt brought $4.2 million. Balance produced a chestnut Street Cry colt on Jan. 25, 2010, and presently is in foal to Street Cry on a March 24 cover.

Let me know what you guys think of the beautiful Balance. Also, for my next entry I will be paying a visit to a filly I know you will all be excited to see. (A large group of you at least based on your previous comments. Hint. Hint.)
