Special Way Wins KYSS Championship

September 19, 2022

Brittany Farms-bred Special Way trotted back to her National Season’s Record of 1:52.2 in winning the $400,000 Kentucky Sire Stakes Championship for 2-year-old filly trotters at the Red Mile on Sept. 18. (Watch race)
That 1:52.2 mark for the Walner-Special Hill filly is the year’s fastest for freshman trotters, and she’s now won in 1:52.2 twice — in her KYSS leg on Aug. 15 and now in the rich final. Not only is she fast, she’s also wealthy, as her earnings of $325,975 make her the sport’s richest 2-year-old trotting filly.
The Ake Svanstedt trainee now makes her way to the major stakes meet at the Red Mile, then on to the Breeders Crown, where she will attempt to become the 29th Breeders Crown winner bred by Brittany.
Among the farm’s marquee yearlings at the Oct. 3-7 Lexington Selected Sale is the Walner full sister to Special Way, Hip No. 72 Special Talent. The opening night attraction — like her sister — is dual-eligible to the New Jersey and Kentucky Sire Stakes. Interested? View her pedigree and watch her video.
Also making news on the Kentucky Sire Stakes “Day Of Champions” was Brittany bred, raised and sold Pebble Beach p,2,1:48.4 ($1,057,650), who became the farms newest millionaire (number 45) after his second-place finish in the $400,000 KYSS 3YO Colt Pace Final.
Like Special Way, the 2022 $1-million North America Cup winner also has a sibling selling in Lexington, as Hip No. 324 San Jose (Pedigree/Video) is his Captaintreacherous three-quarter brother.
Brittany’s complete yearling roster and up-to-date pedigrees are available here, while the farm’s special yearling video section is available here. Potential customers are invited to call (859) 873-3878 and arrange a visit to the farm for a pre-sale yearling inspection. The consignment will be located at sale time in Barn 10 on the Fasig-Tipton grounds.
