The 2010 Kentucky Derby (G1) Champion Super Saver is a millionaire Classic winner, by a two-time Derby sire, and from one of the industry’s great sire’s families.
Five-time Eclipse Award winner Todd Pletcher called Super Saver “my fastest two-year-old” his juvenile season, after he broke his maiden at Belmont by 7, then set a new stakes record in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club S. at Churchill Downs. He also:
- Won the $2,000,000 Kentucky Derby (G1) by 2 ½ lengths, defeating 11 other G1 winners, including Champion Lookin At Lucky
- Ran 2nd by inches in the $1,000,000 Arkansas Derby (G1)
- Ran 3rd by 1/2 in the $300,000 Tampa Bay Derby (G3)
Super Saver had an average victory margin of 4 ½ lengths, and was weighted at 122 lbs. on the Experimental Free H. at two, and 120 lbs. by World Thoroughbred Rankings at three.
Out of a full sister to the dam of top young sire Bluegrass Cat, he is from the immediate family of superior sires Private Account, Mutakddim, and Not For Love. Super Saver is a direct descendant of *La Troienne, replete with seven lines of the Foundation mare.
Renowned pedigree authority John Prather, who has been instrumental in shaping the books of many of the industry's top stallions, said of Super Saver: “His family is one of the best and most active you’ll find in the Stud Book. The sire power is tremendous.”
Super Saver bred superb books his first two seasons, encompassing 145 mares and 128 mares, respectively. His first weanlings went to market in 2012, and 22 of them averaged $61,000, an exceptional return on the stud fee. These include individuals who brought $175,000, $115,000, $110,000, $105,000, etc. His first yearlings sell in 2013.
