FINAL FURLONG RACING OFFERS NY BRED YEARLING FILLY BY FRESHMAN SIRE INSTAGRAND OUT OF ACTIVE FAMILY. MARE IS FULL SISTER TO AMERICAN LION AND A STAKE PRODUCER
We have a special name for a special horse. Farm House is a NY Bred yearling filly by Instagrand. The class of the Final Furlong stable right now is Venti Valentine and Farm House is the closest filly we have found that resembles Venti Valentine’s physicality and class. Farm House has exceptional length, leg and scope and will hopefully be the next big color bearer for Final Furlong.
Describing Farm House from head to tail, she has a smart looking head and a nice long neck that ties into a well-positioned and perfectly shaped shoulder with a deep girth underneath. She has a strong top line ending with a strong hip and gaskins. Farm House is beautifully balanced with great fluid motion and very noticeable front end reach even at a walk. She is very correct and has a lot of leg and size for a late April filly.
Farm House is from Instagrand’s first crop and we are quickly going back to the well as this is the second Instagrand filly we have purchased this year. First crop sires are always in high demand but we have been drawn to a lot of Into Mischief’s new sires at stud. Of the six fillies we purchased to race next year, four of them are by son’s of Into Mischief. The sire line seems to be throwing balanced, strong, sound and athletic foals. Instagrand sold as a 2YO for $1.2 million before winning first time out by 10 lengths in June of his 2YO year. He went on to take the Grade 3 Best Pal Stakes by over 10 lengths at Del Mar in his next start. He stretched out finishing third in both the Gotham and Santa Anita Derby trying to earn Derby Points and has been well supported by his owner Larry Best at stud being bred to many expensive race mares.
Farm House is out of the Tiznow mare, Storm Now. Tiznow gives Farm House her size, stretch, leg and elegance and Instagrand greatly improves the typical Tiznow body type with a sharp shoulder and strength in the forearms, gaskins and hip. Storm Now was a $450k yearling prospect who later sold as a broodmare prospect for $110k to the highly respected Chester Broman NY breeding operation. Storm Now is a full sister to sire American Lion. Storm Now has already produced a stake horse in Bank Frenzy who won an open MSW at Tampa Bay as a 2YO, was stakes placed in the $200k NYSS Stake at Saratoga and winner of a NY Bred allowance with $130k in earnings. Storm Now’s 5YO son, City Mischief, by Into Mischief, was a $350k yearling and just won an open allowance at Woodbine and now has earnings over $117k. Instagrand is by Into Mischief so City Mischief surely convinced the breeders to go back to the Into Mischief line which resulted in Farm House. Storm Now has had three foals to race and all three have been winners.
Farm House is from a deep female family including sires American Lion, Freedom Child and Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Champion Shanghai Bobby with active runner Closethegame Sugar winning a stake as Saratoga this summer.
Farm House is currently starting her breaking training at Rice Horse Farm in Ocala, FL. Farm House will join leading New York trainer Linda Rice as a 2YO next year. Linda Rice saw we purchased Farm House and liked the filly so much, she helped support the purchase of this filly. Farm House is bred and built to run a distance of ground so we expect her to start making her mark next fall.
