All American, record-setting G1-winning miler and millionaire, had his first mare pronounced in foal from his debut season on Northern Hemisphere time at John Phillips' Darby Dan Farm in Lexington, KY.
The mare, Erin's Golden Star, was a debut winner at two before finishing second to Grade 1 winner Bsharpsonata in the Irish Sonnet S. in just her second start. Owned by Alvin and Dede Hackman's Windsor Thoroughbreds, she was confirmed in foal over the weekend at Lisa Parkes' Steeple Hill Farm in Paris, KY.
The only graded stakes-winning juvenile standing in Kentucky from the Roberto sire line, All American won the Skyline S. (G3) in Australia before going on to defeat six G1 winners in course-record time in the $1 million Emirates S. (G1). He ran the mile in 1:33.98, establishing a new mark at the prestigious Flemington racetrack.
All American, who is standing his first season at Darby Dan for a fee of $10,000 stands and nurses, is by the Roberto stallion Red Ransom, and he's out of the Strawberry Road mare Milva, a half-sister to Rock Hard Ten.
