First Foal for MGSW & MGISP By My Standards


By My Standards | Coady

Spendthrift Farm's MGSW & MGISP By My Standards (Goldencents) has been represented by his first reported foal, a colt born Jan. 23 at Jacob Nance's IR Bloodstock in Midway, Kentucky. The newborn bay is the first foal out of the unraced mare Memento (Nyquist), whose third dam is GI Kentucky Oaks winner Blush With Pride (Blushing Groom {Fr}). This is the family of Broodmares of the Year Best in Show and Better Than Honour.

The colt was bred by Chester Thomas's Allied Racing, who also campaigned By My Standards to four graded wins, including the GII Louisiana Derby at three over the eventual Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners.

“We are very happy with this colt,” said Nance. “He has good bone, a nice shoulder and hip, and a lot of leg. He's a great representation of By My Standards, and I know Chester looks forward to racing (the stallion's) offspring.”

By My Standards enters his second season at stud in 2023 and will stand at Spendthrift for $5,000 S&N.
