First foal for dual Grade 1 winner Midshipman
THE first foal of Midshipman, the Kentucky based sire who took up stud duties last year, has been born.
The new arrival was born on the 26th February at Darley's Stonerside base in Paris, Kentucky and is out of Freefourracing, who won the Group 3 Prestige Stakes for Brian Meehan as a juvenile.
The filly foal is a half-sister to Listed winner Speedway and the stakes-placed duo Free Brave and Ready Racer.
Midshipman, a son of Unbridled's Song, was a dual Grade 1 winner as a juvenile - he won the Del Mar Futurity by a nose and followed up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile for trainer Bob Baffert.
