First Foals for Millionaires Johannesburg and Red Bullet

The first reported foals by international champion Johannesburg and Preakness Stakes (gr. I) winner Red Bullet were born the beginning of January. Johannesburg's first offspring is a filly born Jan. 2 at Winchester Farm near Paris, Ky. She is the first foal from the Danehill mare Darling Dancer, who is a half-sister to European group I stakes-placed runners Le Destin and Plaisir des Yeux. Five-year-old Johannesburg (Hennessy--Myth, by Ogygian) stands at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky. His 2004 fee of $30,000 is the same as last year's price.

Red Bullet, who stands at Frank Stronach's Adena Springs South near Ocala, Fla., is the sire of a Florida-bred filly foaled Jan. 3. She is the second foal from the Skip Trial mare Skip Lightly, who is a half-sister to grade II winner Comeonmom. Second dam Single Blade is a grade I winner. Seven-year-old Red Bullet (Unbridled--Cargo, by Caro) will hold court once again for $30,000.
