Ashford Stud's three-time Grade I winner Jack Christopher (Munnings) was represented by his first reported foal when a filly was born Jan. 11 at River Valley Farm in New York.

The filly is the first produce from the unraced She's a Go Go Girl (Union Rags), who was acquired by Whitecloud Bloodstock for $30,000 at last year's Keeneland November. The deeper female family includes Grade II-winning juvenile filly Magicalmysterycat (Storm Cat).

“We couldn't be happier with this filly,” said Dr. Scott Ahschwede who bred her along with his wife Dr. Patricia Ahschwede and fellow veterinarian Dr. Scott Pierce. “A pretty first foal with leg and size. A great start to our season.”

Winner of the GI Champagne S. as a juvenile, Jack Christopher won the GI Woody Stephens S. and GI H. Allen Jerkens S. over seven furlongs at three.

Jack Christopher was an exceptional talent,” said his trainer Chad Brown. “I've never had a dirt horse with such brilliance. He never disappointed us in a workout or a race and was just a pleasure to train.”

Jack Christopher is one of 73 stakes winners for his sire, who also stands at Ashford.
