First mares checked in foal to Super Saver
Thursday, March 03, 2011
Super Saver, the reigning Kentucky Derby (G1) hero, had his first mares confirmed in foal from his debut book at stud at WinStar Farm.

The first was Lunargal, a stakes winner and sister to several important stakes performers. The 8-year-old mare is owned and boarded at WinStar Farm, and she's one of several stakes winners and stakes producers from Super Saver's first book of mares, according to WinStar stallion seasons & bloodstock director Robert Hammond. Lunargal is a full sister to multiple graded stakes-winning juvenile Lunarpal, and also a half sister to graded stakes-winning juvenile and Kentucky Derby contender Astrology

Lunargal is just the first of four mares that have been confirmed in foal to date, Hammond reported, making Super Saver 4-for-4 from the first mares checked among his earliest covers.

Super Saver was a record-setting graded stakes-winner at two, capturing the Kentucky Jockey Club S. (G2) in stakes-record time. He went on to win the Kentucky Derby (G1) at three before retiring to stud for 2011. By Maria's Mon out of the A.P. Indy mare Supercharger, Super Saver is standing his first season at WinStar for a fee of $20,000 stands and nurses.
