Multiple G1 winner Constitution sires first foal
Wednesday, January 11, 2017
WinStar Farm’s Constitution, the multiple Grade 1-winning son of Tapit, sired his first reported foal Monday night when a filly was born at Crestwood Farm in Lexington, KY.

Bred by RMJ Stables, the flashy chestnut filly is out of the Point Given mare Katouni, a Juddmonte-bred daughter of the stakes-winning Danehill mare, Kithira (GB).

“She’s a really nice chestnut filly,” said Marc McLean. “We’re big fans of the stallion and will be breeding this mare back to him in 2017.”

On the track, Constitution became the first son of leading sire Tapit to win Grade 1 events in back-to-back seasons, capturing the Florida Derby (G1) as a 3-year-old before returning at four to win the Donn Handicap (G1).

Constitution was named a TDN Rising Star after capturing his debut in a seven-furlong Maiden Special Weight race at Gulfstream to start his career. A month later, he stretched out to 1 1/16 miles to score a 3 ¼-length victory over Grade 1 winners Tonalist and Wicked Strong in a talent-filled Allowance race, before becoming an undefeated winner of the Florida Derby. At four, Constitution earned a 111 Beyer winning the Donn H., still the fastest Beyer ever recorded around two turns by a son or daughter of Tapit.

Constitution, who retired to WinStar in 2016 with earnings of $1,031,596, hails from the multiple graded stakes-producing Distorted Humor mare, Baffled, also the dam of 2016 Group 2-winning 2-year-old colt Boynton and Grade 3-winning 2-year-old filly Jacaranda. Constitution bred 172 mares in his first book in 2016, and he was North America’s No. 1 Freshman Covering Sire with a sales average of $508,142 from in-foal mares sold last year. He’s set to stand his second season at WinStar for a fee of $25,000 stands and nurses.

“Constitution is a true blueblood, and we saw that last fall when his dam sold for $3.5 million, his sister sold for $2 million, and his first in-foal mare sold for $2.2 million,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar President & CEO. “Fittingly, he was the No. 1 Freshman Covering Sire over horses like American Pharoah, Tonalist, Honor Code, Liam’s Map. Constitution is an extremely popular stallion, and we’re very excited about the arrival of his first foals.”
