WinStar Farm’s Outwork, the Grade 1-winning son of Uncle Mo, sired his first two reported foals only an hour and a half apart late Sunday, Jan. 14th when both a colt and a filly were born.
A bay colt arrived at around 9 p.m. in New York out of the Wheelaway mare Twistaway, who was stakes-placed as a 2-year-old on the racetrack. The colt was bred by Classic Bloodstock’s Danzel Brendemuehl and Sean Mahoney’s & Britt Wadsworth’s Mahoney Eden Manor.
“We are very impressed with the size, bone, and substance of this colt. He had quite the ‘wow’ presence at delivery,” said co-breeder Britt Wadsworth. “He has a great temperament and is a tremendous representation of his father. We’re very excited.”
At around 10:30 p.m., a bay filly was born at Millennium Farms in Lexington, KY out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Win Crafty, a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Harmony Lodge and Grade 2 winner Graeme Hall, and a full sister to Grade 3 winner Win McCool. The newborn filly was bred by Millennium Farms.
“We wanted to acquire a mare in November in foal to Outwork. We are very happy with the filly Win Crafty has produced,” said J. Ted Neel, general manager of Millennium Farms. “She has a great profile and a lot of presence about her. We’ve been rewarded for our hard work in November, and look forward to seeing this filly develop.”
Outwork was his sire Uncle Mo’s first winner as a 2-year-old, and became the first Grade 1-winning son of Uncle Mo to retire to stud following his 3-year-old campaign. Outwork scored his biggest career victory in the $1 million Wood Memorial (G1) at Aqueduct, and was also a narrow runner-up in the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) behind a track-record-setting performance.
Outwork retired with earnings of $701,800 to WinStar, where he covered 168 mares in his first season at stud in 2017 – second most among all first-year stallions in North America. Bred and campaigned by Repole Stable, Outwork is out of the Grade 1-placed Empire Maker mare Nonna Mia, a half-sister to multiple Grade 2 winner Cairo Prince.
Outwork, whose stud career has been partnered on by Mike Repole of Repole Stable, WinStar and Woodford Thoroughbreds, is set to stand his second season in 2018 for a fee of $15,000 S&N.
