Twin Creeks Farm has announced that 21 of its Kentucky-based mares have been officially booked to two-time grade II-winning millionaire Mission Impazible for the 2013 breeding season. The first-year stallion by Unbridled's Song stands at Sequel Stallions in New York.
The Empire State also will serve as the new home for the 21 mares, who will be eligible for New York's lucrative breeding program.
"We have hand-selected an outstanding group of mares at Twin Creeks Farm to breed to Mission Impazible in hopes of giving him the best opportunity to become New York's leading sire," said Randy Gullatt of Twin Creeks. "New York has the best state-bred program in North America for both breeders and racehorse owners, and we're excited about the future and being involved in New York."
Of the 21 mares chosen, 17 have earned black-type in their careers, including 13 stakes winners. Notables include grade I-placed Queen of Hearts
and Unspoken Word
and graded stakes winners Little Miss Holly
. Notable among the top producers is Deputy Reality
, dam of grade II winner Teeth of the Dog
, who was a leading 3-year-old in 2012 in New York.
Mission Impazible scored his biggest wins on the track in the 2010 Louisiana Derby (gr. II) and 2011 New Orleans Handicap (gr. II), and was runner-up in three grade I races.
