“Champion RAGS TO RICHES, winner of the 2007 Belmont Stakes ( gr.1 ) became the first filly to win the Belmont Stakes in 102 years beating the favorite Curlin who later became Horse Of The Year delivered a HENRYTHENAVIGATOR colt March 17, 2010 in Ireland. I sure miss the stately presence of this chestnut beauty perhaps one day she will be back in the USA.
I do believe that this filly, Rags To Riches, started the female quest to oust the boys at the top. You just gotta love this filly!
It has been confirmed by Coolmore Stud Ireland, that Rags To Riches will be bred sometime this year to Galileo. That is one breeding worth waiting for.
HENRYTHENAVIGATOR is the sire. He’s a beauty isn’t he!!! Out of Sequoyah, Sadler Wells (Ireland) by Kingmambo, Mr.Prospector. This photo was taken in 2008 as he was winning the Saint James Palace Stakes at the Royal Ascot racetrack, Berkshire, England.”
