Rippled Waters (Surprise)

Rippled Waters



This filly is out of a grey thoroughbred mare by American Trust who is by Sadlers Wells.  Sadler Wells was a great racehorse who was bred in the United States and raced in Europe, he is most recognized as a sire to other racehorses who have gone on to win all over Europe.  Sadlers Wells winning such events at 3 in 1984 as the Airlie Coolmore Irish Two Thousand Guineas (Ire-I), Coral-Eclipse Stakes (Eng-I), and Phoenix Champion Stakes (Ire-I). In France, where he ran second in that year’s Prix du Jockey-Club (Fr-I), he was a champion miler; he was later retired the same year.  In addition to dominating Europe with wave after wave of group I winners and champions, Sadler’s Wells achieved plenty of fame in North America. His offspring have won a record six Breeders’ Cup (gr. I) events, including the 2003 John Deere Turf, in which High Chaparral finished in a dead-heat for first. They also won two runnings of the Arlington Million Stakes (gr. IT).  Sadlers Wells total LTE663,423 USD.  Coolmore Ranch manager Christy Grassick said: “He (Sadlers Wells) was undoubtedly the best sire Europe has ever seen... he has left a wonderful legacy at Coolmore and his influence looks set to continue for many years to come. We all feel privileged to have been involved with such a special horse.”  The sire of this mare American Trust was originally trained then sold to race in Europe for $750,000 USD but during the long journey to Europe his tendons in his legs bowed and he was unable to race.  He was then sold and has now been retired as a stallion.  This mare has the top and bottom bloodlines to produce some very fast and intelligent minded offspring.  We could not pass up the opportunity to own this mare just because we believe so much in her ability.  To inquire about future offspring of "Surprise" feel free to contact us via email or by phone.  Thanks for stopping by.
