Multiple Grade I winner Yoshida (Jpn) (Heart's Cry {Jpn}–Hilda's Passion, by Canadian Frontier) was represented by his first reported foal when a colt out of Gravata (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}) was born at WinStar Farm Saturday night. The foal was bred by Anastasie Astrid Christiansen-Croy.

“We're thrilled to welcome the first Yoshida foal here at WinStar Farm on behalf of our client Ms. Christiansen-Croy,” said Liam O'Rourke, WinStar's director of bloodstock services. “Yoshida has repatriated the Sunday Silence line to America and these foals represent the next generation of that world-class sire. Yoshida was an elite and versatile racehorse and will be strongly supported again in his second year at stud in 2021.”

Campaigned by WinStar Farm, China Horse Club International and Head of Plains Partners and trained by Bill Mott, Yoshida won the 2018 GI Woodward S. and the GI Old Forester Turf Classic.

Yoshida bred 148 mares in his first book in 2020 at WinStar and he will stand the upcoming breeding season for $15,000 S&N.
