Metropolitan Handicap (G1) winner SILVER STATE sees his first in-foal mares offered in coming weeks at the Kentucky November breeding stock sales with one on offer at Fasig-Tipton November and 18 cataloged at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

A granddaughter of multiple graded stakes winner and Grade 1 producer Daydreaming, Special Treat proved her own abilities as a broodmare over the summer when Chocolate Gelato won the Frizette (G1). That Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) contending filly is the third foal out of the winning Candy Ride mare, who also has a yearling filly by Palace Malice and weanling filly by Outwork to come.

In addition to Daydreaming, Special Treat’s family has proven the young mare is set to be a top producer. Her third dam is the Grade 3 winner Get Lucky, who is the granddam of Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Super Saver and third dam of Grade 1 winner Callback among others. Get Lucky is also a full sister to champion Rhythm and successful sire Not For Love.
