Leading the slew of Brittany-bred stakes winners this year is recent $500,000 Hempt Memorial victor Springsteen p,3,1:48.3f ($479,423), who won the Matron and an elim of the Governor’s Cup last term before his breakout score in the Hempt. The colt by Rock N Roll Heaven from American Charm was sold as a yearling by Brittany at the 2016 Lexington Selected Sale for a bargain $18,000.

Others making headlines that were bred, raised and sold as yearlings by Brittany include Earl Beal Memorial elim winners Manchego 3,1:52.4f ($929,688) and Six Pack 3,1:51.2 ($470,055).

Manchego was last year’s Dan Patch Champion “2-Year-Old Trotting Filly of the Year” and is drawing ever closer to becoming the 36th millionaire bred by Brittany. Both she and season’s record-setter Six Pack are headed to the Meadowlands for the Hambletonian and the Hambletonian Oaks.

Not to be overlooked are this year’s 2-year-old winners bred by Brittany… already 15 and counting, and soon enough they’ll be adding to the farm’s earnings total in freshman stakes races.

Those 2-year-olds are the first raised entirely at the new farm, with the second bunch heading to the yearling sales in October. To see them and their “live” TrackIT pedigrees, click here.
