Rockbridge Bloodstock gets RESULTS!
Mike Recio’s Rockbridge Bloodstock offers a wide array of bloodstock services from mating advice to public and private purchases.
A total of EIGHT Rockbridge Bloodstock purchases have earned blacktype over the past year:
- Tonalist’s Shape – G2 Davona Dale S., G3 Forward Gal S., etc.
- Jais’s Solitude – 2nd G3 Virginia Derby, 3rd Sophomore Turf S.
- Silver Kitten – 2nd G3 Honey Fox S.
- Taishan – 3rd Oaklawn S.
- Getouttamyway – 3rd Parx Spring Oaks
- Irish Danzing – 3rd Joseph A. Gimma S.
- Irish Hustle – 3rd Elge Raspberry S.
- Dunph – 3rd Mystic Lake Derby, etc.
2020 multiple graded winner & Kentucky Oaks contender Tonalist’s Shape is a Rockbridge Bloodstock-brokered private purchase for partner Doug Branham.
Rockbridge Bloodstock & Grey Price OBS March purchase Taishan is also generating Classics buzz after a sensational Allowance victory and subsequent 3rd in the $200,000 Oaklawn Stakes. He earned an automatic berth in the Arkansas Derby (G1) with that effort.
Rockbridge Bloodstock has also made many astute broodmare purchases. Almada was purchased privately for Brushy Hill Enterprises well before her half-sister Maqsad scored a victory in the Pretty Polly Stakes. Venturini, now a sister to a 2019 Group 3 winner, was also purchased for Brushy Hill carrying a Temple City colt who is now a stakes-placed juvenile in 2019.
At the 2018 Keeneland November Breeding Stock sale, Rockbridge purchased a pair of mares that have produced 2019 stakes winners – the Medaglia d’Oro mare Glory Gold, now the dam of multiple New York stakes winner Espresso Shot and Causey, dam of Santa Barbara S. (G3) heroine Causeforcommotion. Rockbridge also purchased the mare Native One at KEENOV 2018 carrying a foal by Mastery who sold less than a year later for $325,000.
The Bob Baffert-trained Just a Smidge has added Graded blacktype to her resume since Rockbridge Bloodstock purchased her dam Pooh Corner at the 2019 Keeneland January sale. Credit Swap has placed in four Stakes in 2019, including the Grade 3 Virginia Derby. Her dam, Fantastic Shirl, was purchased at the 2018 Keeneland January auction.
