Summer Wind homebred MORE MOONSHINE (Malibu Moon) looks to make good on her 'TDN Rising Star' debut while trying two turns for the first time here. Making her first trip to the post in a seven-panel event in the mud at this oval July 18, the dark bay rallied five-wide to post a powerful victory, earning her diploma by 6 1/2 lengths and an 86 Beyer Speed Figure. More Moonshine is a full-sister to MGISW Moonshine Memories; SW & GSP Indian Evening (Indian Charlie); and SP Mo for the Money (Uncle Mo). Her dam Unenchanted Evening (Unbridled's Song) is a half-sister to Horse of the Year Favorite Trick (Phone Trick). TJCIS PPs

When Summer Wind Equine is listed as breeder, you know you are looking at a horse with a big pedigree and first time starter SILVER STRAND (Frosted) is no exception. Jeff Drown went to $575,000 at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale to acquire the gray filly and her breeder, Summer Wind's Jane Lyon, stayed in for a piece. She is a daughter of the talented MGSW India (Hennessy), who has also produced Japanese MG1SW Mozu Ascot (Frankel {GB}) and SW Kareena (Medaglia d'Oro). India is out of Summer Wind matriarch, SW & GSP Misty Hour (Miswaki), who is also the dam of SW Pilfer (Deputy Minister), who in turn produced MGISW To Honor and Serve (Bernardini); GISW Angela Renee (Bernardini); and SW & GISP Elnaawi (Street Sense).
