Two-time grade I winner General Quarters had his first reported foal, a chestnut filly out of Hannah's Ink, by Pentilicus born at Jim Loebig's Red Sunset Farm near Ocala, Fla., in early January.
"She's a very well put together filly with a beautiful body reminiscent of General Quarters himself," said Lisa Simoff, director of bloodstock services for Woodford Stallions at Stonewall Farm Ocala. "General Quarters is an exciting young sire, and we couldn't be more pleased with the support he's receiving from breeders both in Florida and Kentucky."
General Quarters, by Sky Mesa --Ecology, by Unbridled's Song, won both the 2009 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) and the 2010 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic Stakes (gr. IT) during a career in which he earned more than $1.2 million on the racetrack for owner and trainer Tom McCarthy. He stands at Woodford Stallions at Stonewall Farm Ocala for $10,000.
"This is very exciting for me," McCarthy said. "I spent so much time with General Quarters he is like a member of my family. Each new foal is like an addition to our family. I have two mares in foal to him that are due in April, and I can't wait to train his babies."
