Corinthian - Mr. Prospector - Nijinsky
2010-2022 16.0h Thoroughbred mare
Approved Mare Book I with the Westfalen NA
Bird is a confident well-bred classy and athletic mare. She's a powerhouse who loves to show off her versatility. She passes on her good look, lovely gaits and stamina. She is approved for breeding in the Main Mare Book of the Westfalen and received great comments and excellent marks about her type and conformation. Bird earned $48,053 during her racing career.
Her sire, Corinthian, was purchased at the Fasig-Tipton 2004 Saratoga yearling sale for $385,000 by the Centennial Farms racing partnership led by Donald V. Little Sr. of Ipswich, Massachusetts. Trained by Jimmy Jerkens, Corinthian is best known for winning the 2007 Grade I Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Monmouth Park and the 2007 Metropolitan Handicap (Grade I) at Belmont Park. Following that win, he was retired to stud duty at Gainesway Farm, near Lexington, Kentucky. He earned a total of 1,276,273$ during his career. He is the son of Pulpit and grandson of A.P. Indy, two well known stallions in sporthorses pedigrees.
Her dam, Symbol of Hope, was a direct daughter of Mr. Prospector. He set track records for six furlongs that still stand at Gulfstream and Garden State Park. He was a leading candidate to challenge the great Secretariat in the spring classics of 1973, but nagging injuries prevented it. After posting seven victories in 14 races and earning $112,000 - he was out of the money only once - he was retired. Mr. Prospector's stud fee, even without the guarantee of a live foal, peaked at $460,000 in the early and mid-1980s.
Bird’s pedigree is full of ancestors that are often seen in sporthorses pedigree like Pulpit (A P Indy), Buckpasser, Nijinsky (Norhtern Dancer) and Raise a Native.
