Gabe Grossberg’s Subsidiary used her quick turn of foot to capture a 4 1/2-furlong Maiden Special at Woodbine on June 2. The victory made the flashy chestnut filly the first winner for her New York-based sire Central Banker.
Grossberg purchased Subsidary from the South Point Sales consignment at the 2017 Fasig-Tipton July sale for $70,000, the highest price paid for a filly in Central Banker’s first crop.
Out of the gate well from post eight, Subsidiary was hustled to the front and gained control by the first point of call, clocking the first quarter-mile in 23.46. Pressed along by Einstein’s Babe around the far turn, she shook free at the top of the stretch. Hand-ridden home by jockey Gary Boulanger, the pair hit the wire with a 1 1/2-length advantage over Einstein’s Babe. The final time was :53.53 over the Woodbine synthetic oval.
Subsidiary was bred by James and Janeane Everatt and Arika Everatt-Meeuse, the family behind the renowned Ontario thoroughbred nursery Shannondoe Farm. Her dam Wouldthisbemagic is a Clever Trick half-sister to graded winner Street Magician.
Central Banker, a speedy Grade 2 winner by Speightstown, stands at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in Saratoga Springs. Subsidiary is one of 70 live foals in his first crop.
