First Foal for Brilliant Haskell Winner Verrazano

Verrazano, a brilliant son of More Than Ready, sired his first foal last weekend when Night Brigade produced a filly at Anchor and Hope Farm in Maryland.

Owned by Finn’s Nickle LLC Night Brigade is a juvenile winning half-sister to the Stakes winner Ms Vanenzza and is out of the G1-placed Stakes winner Speaking of Time.

Louis Merryman, owner of Anchor and Hope Farm, said “The foal is doing well and I’m impressed by her. She is going to develop into a nice first foal.”

Verrazano was one of the best 3yo’s of recent times when his wins included the G1 Haskell by nearly 10 lengths. He stands at Ashford Stud for $20,000.
