Midshipman - Sister State, by A.P. Indy
This filly of 2020 is a MD-bred by Godolphin’s 2008 Champion 2-year-old colt Midshipman (link to TDN ad). Her dam, SISTER STATE, dazzled her rivals when running a “8” to break her maiden at Belmont Park, and then ran a “7” – a huge speed figure, in a Saratoga allowance. Just look at the chart from her sensational win at Saratoga, here. She earned $123,000 in the silks of the Godolphin Stud. This filly’s granddam is Well Related, a full-sister to Cara Rafaela, dam of A. P. Indy’s Preakness-winning son Bernardini. This is a great female line, and the filly has 1/2-siblings by Into Mischief and More Than Ready getting ready to run. She’s in training at Merryland as a 2-year-old.
