Informed Decision, a 2009 Eclipse champion, delivered her first foal, a colt by Street Cry, at Arthur B. Hancock III’s Stone Farm in Paris, Ky., on March 11.
“Informed Decision had a crackerjack colt,” said Hancock. “He is a ‘10’ and is a tribute to both his mother and to Street Cry.”
Raced by George Strawbridge’s Augustin Stable and trained by Jonathan Sheppard, Informed Decision won graded stakes at 3, 4, and 5—every year she raced.
Her most spectacular campaign was her 4-year-old season when she dominated the division and earned the Eclipse Award as champion female sprinter. That season she won six graded stakes from seven starts, including the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (gr. I), Humana Distaff (gr. I), and Vinery Madison (gr. I).
Informed Decision, a gray/roan daughter of Monarchos —Palangana, by His Majesty, completed her career with 14 wins from 22 starts and earnings of more than $2.2 million.
