The dynamics of success in breeding are elusive, to say the least. Few would have predicted great things for the Mister Frisky mare Brandon’s Ride, but she is now the dam of two stakes winners, including G1 winner Toby’s Corner, who won the Wood Memorial on Saturday.

Her produce record follows:

1st Dam: Brandon’s Ride, dkbbr, 1996. Bred by Diane D. Cotter (FL). Raced 2 yrs in NA, 6 sts, 1 win, $17,260 (ssi = 1.27).
