Top ranked colt, filly for Artie Schiller
Thursday, January 30, 2014
Artie Schiller's Grade 1-winning tandem of We Miss Artie and My Conquestadory were ranked near the top of The Jockey Club’s 2013 Experimental Free Handicap for colts and fillies, respectively, released Jan. 29 by The Jockey Club.

The Free Handicap, published annually since 1935, is a weight-based assessment of the previous year’s leading 2-year-olds.

We Miss Artie, winner of the Grade 1 Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland, was weighted at 117 pounds. The dark bay or brown colt, campaigned by Ken and Sarah Ramsey, compiled a record of 2-2-0 in six starts, earning $327,000. Ramsey purchased We Miss Artie for $90,000 out of the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

The newly-turned 3-year-old ran second in the $100,000 Kitten's Joy S. Jan. 19 at Gulfstream Park, his 2014 debut in Florida with his conditioner Todd Pletcher.

My Conquestadory, who also tasted Grade 1 glory at Keeneland, in the Darley Alcibiades S., was weighted at 120 pounds, just three off the top spot, on the fillies' list.

Trained by Mark Casse for Conquest Stables LLC, My Conquestadory also beat males in the TVG Summer S. (G2) at Woodbine. Her $415,908 in earnings made her Artie Schiller's top moneymaker of 2013.

My Conquestadory is the first foal out of the stakes-placed mare Golden Artemis.
