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
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.
