The Unbridled mare Oatsee has proven herself an outstanding broodmare, potentially a truly great producer. The 14yo chestnut produced three cracking racers from her first three foals, including G1 winner Lady Joanne (Orientate) and G3 winner Baghdaria (Royal Academy). The mare’s first foal was a good athlete and a very attractive young mare who did not earn black type but who is now a very salty-looking young broodmare.
Oatsee was a good racehorse, winning twice and earning $106,945 in three seasons of competition. She was stakes-placed in a minor event but has left that far behind with the performances of her offspring, who are now headlined by classic winner Shackleford.
The appreciation in value caused by her producing success is obvious in the differing sales prices from her sale in January 2006 for $135,000 and in November 2008 for $1.55 million.
Current owner Leonard Reggio (My Meadowview Farm) has to feel elated at the continuing success of the broodmare, as well as the prospects for the young racing stock that he has out of her: a 2yo colt by AP Indy and a yearling colt by Johannesburg.
