Champion NOBLE MISSION (GB) was represented by his first foal born earlier this week. The three-time Group 1 winner produced a filly from the mare Forgotten Miss at Woodspring Farm in Versailles, Kentucky.
Owned by Michael Connelly, Forgotten Miss is an unraced, half sister to graded stakes winner Woodlander. She is also half sister to the dam of promising three-year-old and With Anticipation Stakes (G2) winner AZAR for Alto Racing and Todd Pletcher.
NOBLE MISSION (GB) bred 146 mares in his first season at stud. His book of mares was the second best of any Freshman sire in 2015 by C.I. and C.P.I. His first mares in foal sold for as much as $525,000 during the fall sales.
