Hip 185 | Keeneland

A partnership consisting of Coolmore’s M.V. Magnier, Mike Repole and St Elias Stable’s Vinnie Viola was extended to $1.5 million to acquire hip 185, a full-brother to MGISW New Money Honey (Medaglia d’Oro), consigned by Lane’s End on behalf of the colt’s breeder Summer Wind Farm. Trainer Todd Pletcher signed the winning ticket The Apr. 15 foal is a daughter of the unraced Weekend Whim (Distorted Humor), a full-sister to GISW Any Given Saturday, who is also the dam of MSP Coconut Shrimp (Giant’s Causeway). Hip 185’s second dam, Weekend In Indy (A.P. Indy), was also the dam of GSW Bohemian Lady (Carson City), who was responsible for the ill-fated Almoonqith (Dynaformer), a Group 3 winner in Dubai and in Australia. Summer Wind Farm acquired Weekend Whim for $1.4 million carrying this foal in utero at Keeneland November in 2017. In addition to New Money Honey, the cross of Medaglia d’Oro over Distorted Humor mares has resulted in ‘TDN Rising Star’ and MGISW Elate as well as GSWs Lady Montdore, Funny Proposition and Mrs McDougal.
