Winner of the June 13 GI Ogden Phipps S., She’s a Julie (Elusive Quality–Kydd Gloves, by Dubai Millennium) has been retired from racing and will be offered as a broodmare prospect at the Nov. 8 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. Denali Stud will consign her for the partnership of Bradley Thoroughbreds, Tim and Anna Cambron, Denali Stud, Rigney Racing, and Madaket Stables.
In addition to her win in the Ogden Phipps this year as a 5-year-old, She’s a Julie also captured the GI La Troienne S. last year and three other graded stakes during her career in addition to placings in both the GI Alabama S. and the GI Personal Ensign S. After four years of campaigning, she retires with a record of 21-7-2-4 and earnings of $1,196,380.
“Her talent was obvious with two Grade I wins on top of her other graded stakes wins and Grade I placings,” said Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen. “She was the real deal on the racetrack, but you have got to see her in person to understand what a beautiful mare she is. Named after my wife, she is so very special to me and my family. It is really hard for me to let this one go.”
She’s a Julie’s dam is a half-sister to Untouched Talent (Storm Cat), who produced GISW and sire Bodemeister (Empire Maker) and sold for $5 million at Fasig-Tipton’s same sale in 2012.
