From the famed Serena’s Song family, Hip 752 is a three-quarter sister to Grade 2 winner Made You Look.

The filly consigned by Denali Stud is out of the Unbridled’s Song mare Night and Day, who has produced two winners from four to race, a daughter of champion Serena’s Song.

Consigned by Stuart Morris for Morgan’s Ford Farm as Hip 839, this filly out of Sun Salutation registered an update on July 11 when half-brother Alex Joon was second in the Edward P. Evans Stakes. That 5-year-old FLATTER gelding followed that up with an Allowance Optional Claiming Race on August 9.

Another of the filly’s half siblings also gave her dam three winners from three to race when she won back-to-back races at Colonial Downs on July 19 and August 1. Sun Salutation herself is a full sister to multiple graded stakes winner Redeemed.

CATHOLIC BOY’s Hip 1093 consigned by Twin Creeks Farm is a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Red Rife and stakes winner Notte d’Oro among her three winning siblings from three to race.
