Exciting news! 1st Oscar Performance foal

January 15, 2020

Happy New Year! 

We are so excited to announce the arrival of the 1st OSCAR PERFORMANCE foal.  CONGRATULATIONS!

OSCAR PERFORMANCE SIRES FIRST FOAL Mill Ridge Farm's multiple Grade I winner Oscar Performance (Kitten's Joy--Devine Actress, by Theatrical {Ire}) was represented by his first foal Jan. 15 when a bay filly out of Proud Heroine (Proud Citizen) was born at Starwood Farm. Bred by George Krikorian, the filly is a maternal great-granddaughter of the breeder's MGISW Hollywood Story (Wild Rush). "I'm in love with her," Starwood farm manager Tony Burton said. "She is a beauty." Bred and raced by John and Jerry Amerman, Oscar Performance was a Grade I winner at two, three and four, taking out the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf in 2016, the GI Belmont Derby and GI Secretariat S. the following year and the GI Woodbine Mile in 2018. He also annexed the GIII Poker S. at Belmont Park, stopping the timer in course-record and world record-equalling time of 1:31.23. "It is so fitting that Oscar Performance's first foal is born on my mother Alice Chandler's birthday," said Mill Ridge's managing partner Headley Bell. "Both are very special." Oscar Performance covered 118 mares in 2019 with 90% fertility. Oscar Performance's fee is $20,000 LFSN or $15,000 for multiple mares.
