Vinery A.P. Indy Son On A Roll

Tuesday, 27th November 2012

Imposing Vinery Stud shuttler Congrats (A.P. Indy-Praise, by Mr. Prospector) continues to excel, with his third crop this week providing 3 individual 2YO winners from a third crop of only 29 foals (now 2YOs). This mirrors his US stats of 13 2YO runners for 7 winners, including exciting filly Toasting (Congrats-Ponderway, by Prized) who was 3rd in the Gr1 Frizette Stakes. Vinery's Adam White commented: "Congrats hadn't had any runners on the track prior to him covering this smaller third crop… [he has] now covered good books of quality mares and is somewhat of a boom horse in Kentucky where he stands at Vinery… And all the while his yearlings, weanlings and two-year-olds in training were all getting noticed and making good money at the sales. Congrats has currently sired 122 winners from 157 runners which is a massive 77.7% strike rate and 26 of those are stakes-performers."
