With the 2022 breeding season underway, we continue to feature a series of breeders' mating plans. Today we have Mike Schiano Di Cola of Schiano Racing Inc.

“Schiano Racing Inc. is an operation that mainly breeds to sell with the advice of my agent/partner–but most of all, friend–Carrie Brogden of Machmer Hall,” said Schiano Di Cola.

ASH ZEE (m, 15, Exchange Rate–Wickedly Wise, by Tactical Cat), to be bred to Quality Road

Purchased her in 2018 with lots of activity in her pedigree since then. Grade II-placed herself and graded-placed producer; nothing less than my best mare!

PRIVATE BEACH (m, 6, Malibu Moon–Let's Get Married, by More Than Ready), to be bred to Liam's Map

Expensive yearling; bought her in foal to Accelerate in 2020; from the family of the 2021 Keeneland September top seller ($1.7-million colt by City of Light). She's in foal to Practical Joke.

RESTRAINT OF TRADE (m, 5, City Zip–Helena's Triomphe, by Arch), to be bred to Silver State

This young mare from the immediate family of Collected produced a big, beautiful colt (her first foal) by Thousand Words Feb. 9.

BELIEVE IN ANGELS (m, 9, Flatter–Malamado, by Broken Vow), to be bred to Mitole

Big, gorgeous mare bought by Carrie Brogden for Schiano Racing. She foaled a beautiful filly by Collected this year.

TIZ HER NOW (m, 6, Tiznow–Dirty Rush, by Wild Rush), to be bred to Independence Hall

Full-sister to GII-placed Rush Now. She had a beautiful filly (in 2021) by Maximus Mischief and we decided to breed her back to him (for 2022). She's due soon with a full-sibling.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING (m, 13, Harlan's Holiday–Shop Here, by Dehere), to be bred to Thousand Words

Purchased this mare in foal to Palace Malice. The resulting colt–named Anmer Hall–won first time out at Del Mar last August in a maiden special weight. She's in foal to Gift Box.

I also have four more mares in partnership:

WALTZING (m, 9, Candy Ride {Arg}–Dancing Alone, by Kingmambo), to be bred to Independence Hall

She's in foal to Army Mule in partnership with St. Simon Place.

SENTIMENTAL (m, 5, Honor Code–Smooth Performer, by Benchmark), to be bred to Game Winner

In partnership with Machmer Hall.

SOCIALIZED (m, 10, City Zip–Smooth Performer, by Benchmark), to be bred to Independence Hall

She's currently in foal to Tiz the Law in partnership with Machmer Hall.

WILL YE GO LASSIE (m, 7, Trappe Shot–Valentine Fever, by Stormin Fever), to be bred to Rock Your World

This mare is currently in foal to Complexity in partnership with Mullikin Thoroughbreds.
