HEART'S CRY (JPN) - HILDA'S PASSION,
by
CANADIAN FRONTIER, 2014 B

SUNDAY STRONG

"What a racehorse Yoshida has been for his connections. In the last two seasons, he has contested 10 races — 9 Grade 1s and one Grade 2, on dirt and turf, ranging from the Queen Anne at Royal Ascot on turf to the 10-furlong Breeders’ Cup Classic and Dubai World Cup on the dirt. He is a Group 1 winner at nine furlongs on both surfaces and has earned over $2.4 million to date, split almost equally between dirt and turf.

Yoshida is by Heart’s Cry, one of the top sire sons of Sunday Silence, the greatest sire in the history of Japan and a major international influence through his own sons and especially Deep Impact, and he is out of the G1-winning mare Hilda’s Passion. When we rate sire prospects, the one element we factor in besides their race record is how good a race mare their dam was because that does statistically enhance a horse’s chances at stud.

Yoshida has great credentials, and he’ll get a chance at one of the world’s leading stud farms."

- Bill Oppenheim

"Through sires such as Sunday Silence, Deep Impact, Southern Halo, More Than Ready, and Saint Ballado, the Halo line has exerted a remarkable global impact providing champion runners and sires in North America, South America, Europe, Japan, and Australia. Yoshida - out of a Grade 1-winning sprint mare - and himself a Grade 1 winner on dirt and turf exemplifies the class and versatility for which the Halo line has become world-renowned."
-Alan Porter

"Yoshida proved to be a versatile racehorse, winning prestigious Grade 1 races on dirt and turf. He is out of a very fast Grade 1-winning mare and brings back the Sunday Silence/Halo blood to America through his sire Heart’s Cry. He is an outstanding physical that possesses heart as a racehorse that everyone is looking to breed into their foals"
