Echo Town | Sarah Andrew

Echo Town (Speightstown)'s first foals have arrived.

Miss Sephora (First Samurai), a half-sister to GSW Pataky Kid (Rockport Harbor), produced a bay filly by Echo Town bred by Allen Poindexter.

“She's a good, correct, leggy quality foal,” Tim Hamlin said. “Delighted with her. We'll be sending mares back to Echo Town in 2022.”

Then on Thursday, My Tempo (Declaration of War) foaled a chestnut colt at Chesapeake Farm by Echo Town bred by
Crown Chase Farm.

“He is a really nice colt, very correct with plenty of bone and quality,” Collier Mathes said. “After seeing him, Echo Town is definitely a stallion that I'd be looking to breed back to.”

Echo Town, winner of the 2020 GI H. Allen Jerkens S. at Saratoga and a half-brother to the brilliant unbeaten GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies heroine Echo Zulu (Gun Runner), stands for $7,500 at Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky.
