In just her second lifetime start My Generation became Speightstown's newest stakes winner March 5 at Dundalk Racecourse in Ireland with a commanding victory in the Patton S.
The 3-year-old filly, who had debuted just three weeks ago when third in a maiden race, proved she was up to the task in Friday's seven-furlong contest. After getting boxed in behind horses, she finally found and opening in upper stretch, and after taking over between foes, she powered away to win by some five lengths.
“Her half-brother (Crossfirehurricane) won (this race) last year and he's a nice horse, so she's going to be a valuable prospect as a broodmare in time,” said stable representative Brendan Powell. “She's got her black-type now. She's very relaxed and Crossfirehurricane was the same. They are lovely, relaxed horses and put their head down and gallop.”
My Generation is the third winner out of the stakes-winning Louvakhova, herself a half-sister to Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) winner Flotilla (FR). My Generation was bred in Kentucky by Cindy and Courtney Heider and is owned by Scott Heider.
Speightstown is currently the leading General Sire of 2021 with more than $5.5 million in progeny earnings. He has three stakes winners and 10 stakes horses overall this year.
