Rockbridge Bloodstock gets RESULTS!
Mike Recio’s Rockbridge Bloodstock offers a wide array of bloodstock services from mating advice to public and private purchases to stallion placement.
13% of all Rockbridge Bloodstock 2YO purchases have earned blacktype! These purchases have won or placed in 26 blacktype races since 2017.
The Critical Way, purchased by Rockbridge Bloodstock at the 2016 OBS June Two-Year-Old in Training sale, is still going strong in 2021. The 7-year-old scored his 7th blacktype victory in the $200,000 Parx Dash (G3) on August 31, continuing his mad dash to the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1).
Rockbridge Bloodstock private purchases and matings have also excelled on weekend afternoons.
Multiple graded winner Tonalist’s Shape is a Rockbridge Bloodstock-brokered private purchase for partner Doug Branham.
Breeders’ Cup starter Stubbins, a course record-setter in the Woodford S. (G2) and Graded Stakes-placed Colonial Creed are among the winners mated on advice of Rockbridge Bloodstock.
Astute broodmare purchases are also a Rockbridge specialty. Is It Gold was purchased out of western Canada just before her half-sister Swiss Skydiver emerged as North America’s Champion 3-year-old filly. Gal Factor was a Rockbridge Bloodstock claim for just $5,000 and she’s now worth considerably more after her half-brother Super Stock scored in the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby. She’ll go through the ring in November of 2021.
Six Rockbridge Bloodstock-purchased mares have produced blacktype horses in 2021 including the dams of four Stakes winners:
- Teroda, dam of Florida Oaks (G3) winner Domain Expertise
- Hot Coffee, dam of Purple Martin S. winner Abrogate
- Twinkling, dam of Roar S. winner & G2-placed Moonlite Strike
- Hard Lovin Woman, dam of Woodhaven S. winner Hard Love
