Supercharger (1995 b m by AP Indy x Get Lucky, by Mr Prospector) is one of the élite broodmares of the day. Already the dam of 2010 Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver (Maria’s Mon), the mare is also dam of the unbeaten Brethren (Distorted Humor), who won the Sam F Davis Stakes on Saturday at Tampa Bay.

Those two colts are not her first foals, however. Indeed, they are the 16-year-old producer’s fourth and fifth foals, and she had a rocky time as a broodmare till the birth of Super Saver in 2007. Since then, no major hiccups.
