What's in a Name: Top Seed



by Andrea Branchini

6th-Gulfstream, $43,000, Msw, 2-5, 4yo/up, 6f, 1:10.10, ft. TOP SEED (c, 4, Orb–Trophy Wife, by Giant's Causeway) Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $25,800. O/B-Phipps Stable (KY); T-Claude R. McGaughey III.
The pedigree of recent Gulfstream winner TOP SEED contains more views about family and marriage than a book by Dr Phil. His dam TROPHY WIFE is out PLEASANT HOME, who is by SEEKING THE GOLD. Honesty and positive vibes in abundance. The name of the colt is a bit risque, but everyone in the family is entitled to have an exceedingly high opinion about daddy.

An Italian native, Andrea Branchini now lives in Lexington, Ky. where he works in the equine transport industry.
