One of the great female families lies behind Saturday’s Woodward Stakes winner Havre de Grace. The daughter of Horse of the Year Saint Liam and the Carson City mare Easter Bunnette traces to the great producers Toll Booth (third dam and producer of seven stakes winners) and Missy Baba (fourth dam and producer of six stakes winners).

Toll Fee (Topsider) was one of Toll Booth’s seven stakes winners, and although Toll Fee failed to produce a stakes winner herself, four of her daughters have produced a graded stakes winner to date. Aside from Havre de Grace, the pick of them is Riskaverse, who won thrice at the premium level.
