Super Saver, by Maria’s Mon, is finishing his first season as a stallion at WinStar. He will have his first crop of foals in 2012. Brethren, Supercharger’s 2008 foal by Distorted Humor, was impressive as a stakes winner earlier this year on the Derby trail when he won the Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa. After an 11th place finish in the Arkansas Derby, Brethren was returned to Kentucky for a rest and training at the WinStar training facility.
Other broodmare updates:
Stardom Bound had her first foal on April 18, 2011 at Katsumi Yoshida’s Northern Farm in Hokkaido, Japan. The grey colt is by champion Big Brown, who won the Kentucky Derby and stands at Three Chimneys Farm near Midway, Ky. A Northern Farm representative said Stardom Bound is doing well as a first-time mother!
Rags to Riches has a 2011 Galileo colt in Ireland and has been bred back to Galileo. Her first foal, an unnamed 2-year-old filly by Giant’s Causeway, now is with JJ Pletcher at his Payton Training Center in Ocala, Florida. The filly likely will move into training at the track with Todd Pletcher in July or August of this year.

Playa Maya had a Broken Vow colt on Feb. 1, 2011, at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky. The dam of champion 2-year-old Uncle Mo, Playa Maya is back in foal to Indian Charlie. Uncle Mo will be one of the favorites at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 7.
