G1 winner Winter Memories has Street Cry colt as first foal
RSS Feeds Thursday, March 6, 2014
Multiple Grade 1-winning millionaire Winter Memories delivered her first foal on March 1st, a colt by Street Cry (Ire) born at John Phillips’ Darby Dan Farm in Lexington.

Foaled during a winter snow storm that blanketed Central Kentucky, the colt was described as "stellar" by Phillips, whose Phillips Racing Partnership owns the mare and foal.

“This foal represents six generations of Darby Dan horses, and very special horses, indeed,” Phillips said. “The second dam Memories of Silver achieved her greatest successes immediately following the death of my father. Winter Memories was foaled just three days after the death of my mother, who especially loved gray horses. This colt and his entire family mean so, so much to the entire Darby Dan family.”

A 6-year-old daughter of champion El Prado (Ire) out of multiple Grade 1 winner and millionaire Memories of Silver, Winter Memories was among the best of her generation every year she raced, from two through four. Trained by veteran Jimmy Toner, the flashy gray/roan was renowned for a devastating turn of foot, which she used in seven graded stakes wins, including the Diana S. (G1) and Garden City S. (G1). Winter Memories also was runner-up in the $1,000,000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, and retired to the Darby Dan broodmare band with a record of 12-8-2-0 and career earnings of $1,268,100.

Winter Memories is boarded at Darby Dan alongside her dam and two of her half-sisters. She is booked to War Front later this season.
