21 Kentucky mares sent to Mission Impazible
Friday, February 8, 2013

Twin Creeks Farm has announced that 21 of its Kentucky-based mares have been officially booked to multiple Grade 2-winning millionaire Mission Impazible for the 2013 breeding season. The first-year stallion by Unbridled’s Song stands at Sequel Stallions in New York, which will also serve as the new home for the 21 mares, all of which will now be eligible for New York’s lucrative breeding program.

“We have hand selected an outstanding group of mares at Twin Creeks Farm to breed to Mission Impazible in hopes of giving him the best opportunity to become New York’s leading sire,” said Randy Gullatt of Twin Creeks. “New York has the best state-bred program in North America for both breeders and racehorse owners, and we’re excited about the future and being involved in New York.”

Of the 21 mares chosen, 17 have earned black type in their careers, including 13 stakes winners. Notables include Grade 1 performers Queen of Hearts and Unspoken Word, and Graded stakes winners Little Miss Holly and Nashinda. Notable among the top producers is Deputy Reality, the dam of Grade 2 stakes winner Teeth of the Dog who was a leading 3-year-old in 2012 in New York.

Mission Impazible scored his biggest wins on the track in the 2010 Louisiana Derby (G2) and 2011 New Orleans H. (G2), and was runner-up in three Grade 1 races, including the 2012 Donn H. (G1), 2011 Clark H. (G1) and 2011 Stephen Foster H (G1). He was also a TDN Rising Star after breaking his maiden first-time out as a 2-year-old during the 2009 Keeneland Spring Meet. Mission Impazible finished in the money in 13 of 21 starts, which included 17 Graded stakes races – 8 of which were Grade 1s. After accumulating $1,284,949 in earnings over a four-year career, Mission Impazible retired at the end of the 2012 season.

Out of the multiple Graded stakes-producing mare La Paz, Mission Impazible is set to stand his first season in 2013 at Sequel Stallions in Hudson, NY for a fee of $7,500 stands and nurses.
