Graded Stakes Producer Prospective Joy Dead

Prospective Joy, dam of grade I winner Hookedonthefeelin, died in March of foaling complications. Owned by Rick Porter, the 16-year-old daughter of Allen's Prospect was boarded at the Taylor family's Taylor Made Farm near Nicholasville, Ky. Her foal by Malibu Moon  also died.

Prospective Joy not only was a grade I producer, but so was Hookedonthefeelin. Sired by Citidancer and winner of the 1999 La Brea Stakes (gr. I), Hookonthefeelin produced Pussycat Doll (by Real Quiet), who has captured three grade I stakes, including the 2005 La Brea.

Bred in Maryland by Fourbros Stable, Prospective Joy won or placed in all six races for Skeedattle Associates. Trained by Carlos A. Garcia, she won the restricted Jameela Stakes at Laurel and was twice stakes-placed.

Prospective Joy was sold at the 2006 Keeneland November breeding stock sale to dissolve a partnership that included the Pons family's Country Life Farm. Consigned by Bluegrass Thoroughbred Services, she was purchased by Sport Thoroughbreds in foal to Malibu Moon for $90,000.

Prospective Joy, who was produced from the Rollicking mare Jovial Joy, foaled nine named offspring, eight of which are of racing age. Five of them are winners.
