This royally-bred colt out of Mission Brief from the first crop of Greenshoe arrived recently at Hunterton Farm in Kentucky. It is the third foal out of the blazingly-fast Mission Brief, who earned $1.6 million and posted a mark of 1:50.2 at 3. Mission Brief has also produced a Father Patrick filly named Adirondack that sold for $400,000 to Diamond Creek Racing at the 2019 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale.
Adironack earned over $16,000 in five starts at 2 in 2020 for trainer Per Engblom. Mission Brief also has a Walner filly named Jaya Bae sold to Courant Inc. as a yearling for $725,000 at the 2020 Lexington sale. Mission Brief is owned by Glencairn Racing Stable, Martin Schmucker, Tom Schmucker, Steve Stewart, Black Creek Farm, Dublin Valley Farm and Maumee River Stables.
