Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Super Saver sired his first reported foal over the weekend when a chestnut filly was born at the Versailles-based WinStar Farm – also the home of Super Saver.
Bred in partnership by WinStar Farm LLC and MR Capital, the filly is out of the High Yield mare Yield to Faith.
The 5-year-old Super Saver was a record setter and classic winner on the racetrack. A leading 2-year-olds of his crop, he set a new stakes record in the Kentucky Jockey Club S. (G2). Super Saver's biggest win came in the American classics at three when he impressively captured the highly-coveted Run for the Roses at Churchill in 2010.
By Maria's Mon, Super Saver is out of the A.P. Indy mare Supercharger. He retired to WinStar in 2011 with earnings of $1,889,766, and bred 145 mares his first season at stud. Super Saver will stand in 2012 for a fee of $20,000 stands and nurses.
