Spendthrift Farm stallion Mor Spirit, winner of the Los Alamitos Futurity (G1) at two and Met Mile (G1) at four, sired his first reported foal on Jan. 8 when a colt was born at Fairytail Farm in Texas.
Bred by KMA Ranch, the chestnut colt is the first foal out of the Exchange Rate mare Firstrate Proposal.
“This is a nice foal,” said Janine Winslow, owner of Fairytail Farm. “He has a beautiful head and really good bone.”
On the track, Mor Spirit broke his maiden as a two-year-old by 4 ¼ lengths at Santa Anita before capturing the Los Alamitos Futurity (G1) to close out his juvenile campaign. He opened his three-year-old season right where he left off, winning the Robert B. Lewis S. (G3) at Santa Anita. Mor Spirit also finished runner-up in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) and San Felipe S. (G2) at three.
As a four-year-old, Mor Spirit went on a three-race win streak and established himself as one of racing’s best milers, most notably capturing the prestigious Metropolitan H. (G1) at Belmont with a 117 Beyer – the fastest Beyer recorded up to a mile in 2017. The son of Eskendereya retired with six victories and earnings of $1,668,400.
Mor Spirit was one of the top five most popular first-season stallions in 2019, covering 176 mares. He’s set to stand his second season at Spendthrift for a fee of $7,500 S&N.
