PERFORMING SPELLS

Year 23 Chestnut Thoroughbred Mare (Performing Tricks x Meditation, by Punishment)

13: 3-2-4 $73,750

Foundation Mare for Thoroughbred Turf Milers

PERFORMING SPELLS was my the second DTD yearling that I won as a newbie.  She was a wings galloper that ran third in a stakes for her debut, and then won a MSW her next start.  She won only twice more -- a NW2 and a sponsored NW3 for GBR-breds.  But she also placed in a GBR-bred stakes and never ran worse than fifth her entire career.  PERFORMING SPELLS' dam was a half-sister to four millionaires, and she herself produced four six-figures earners.  Therefore, it shouldn't be surprising that this DTD yearling with modest track success has way out-produced herself in the shed, despite only being a "good"" broodmare.  She is the dam of the farm's first "scary good" Thoroughbred and Steward's Cup winner.
