Recent MSW winner and TDN “Rising Star” WINTER STAR (Tapit), racing for the Phillips Racing Partnership, is the second foal out of the 10-year-old WINTER MEMORIES (El Prado), winner of the G1 Diana and Garden City Stakes. WINTER MEMORIES is the best runner produced by MEMORIES OF SILVER (Silver Hawk), winner of the G1 Queen Elizabeth Challenge Cup and Beverly D Stakes. Third dam All My Memories (Little Current) was out of Java Moon (Graustark), one of three stakes winners and four stakes-placed runners produced by “BLUE HEN” Golden Trail (Hasty Road), whom John Galbreath had acquired for Darby Dan Farm in the early 1960s from the dispersal of Brookmeade Stable.
Kirkwood is proud to have started Winter Memories and Memories of Silver. Winter Star was also trained in Camden, but by Kirkwood friend Frank Smith.
