Pedigree Time Machine: Convenience

Convenience, a two-time winner of the Vanity Handicap (gr. I) in 1972-73, is the third dam of this weekend's Obeah Stakes (gr. III) winner Miss Singhsix (by Singspiel). One day later, Zenyatta became the first mare to win three Vanity Handicaps.

The favourite Susan's Girl was the 3 yo champion and twice older mare champion.She is the dam of Copelan.

For my money, Ms. Singhsix and Zenyatta descend from two of the greatest broodmares ever, Moment Of Truth II and Mrs. Peterkin, respectively. Their relative lack of influence today prevents some from appreciating their true quality.

The fifth-place finisher, Belle Marie, was the dam of one of my favorites, champion older male Lemhi Gold.

I love looking through charts of old distaff stakes and seeing just how frequently the stakes fillies of yesteryear show up in the pedigrees of later stars!

Interesting that Tizna, 2nd dam of Cee's Tizzy, was scratched from this race. She didn't return until the end of December, running twice before beating Convenience in the 7f Santa Monica H. (gr. II) in January; Convenience defeated Tizna in the 8.5f Santa Maria H. (gr. II) in February; then Tizna beat Convenience again in the 9f Santa Margarita (gr. I) in March.

Nice subject ! I love looking at old Racing Forms and Race Progams ! I have a program from the 1989 Preakness ! I bet $2 to win on Sunday Silence and kept the ticket ! It was a terribly hot day at Pimlico! I remember my handicapping strategy that day , bet Desormeaux ! He ruled the Maryland circuits back then ! I have had offers for the program and ticket but, For a thoroughbred lover like me , I'ts priceless :)
