ITO's first foal is here
This year, foaling season started by the end of January at Gestuet Bernried, and G1 winner BALTIC BARONESS was the one to open the round. The granddaughter of the great BORGIA delivered a bay colt by top sire SEA THE STARS on January 26. The G3-placed LIGHT THE STARS wasted no time following suit. The half-sister to sire LOPE DE VEGA by Sea The Stars foaled a bay filly by FRANKEL on February 2. Only two days later, SAVANNE by Rock of Gibraltar delivered a bay colt by the French derby winner NEW BAY.
February 11 then turned out to be a special day for freshman sire ITO as he became a father for the first time ever on that day. The Swiss guest mare MISTIC WORLD foaled a healthy filly by the handsome Schlenderhan-bred. Perhaps the fact that Ito's first born is a Sunday child proves to be a good omen for the approaching sire career of the expressive Adlerflug-son!
