I Am A. Luring runs tomorrow at Tampa Bay.

Can you guess who her grand daddy is?

Clue...... he sired 1 foal.🤔
Giants Causeway (top half) and Lure (bottom half) sired multiple foals, so I give up...

No. He didn't go to stud until 1995, his first crop is 1996. There was a fake 1993 foal listed on PedigreeQuery.

Up until recently, PQ listed Meghan's Joy as having a foal by unraced Lord Commander (a half to Bayern which isn't listed on the site anymore IIRC) named Toon World and I have to wonder...who takes the time to make fake horses and why?

Mostly kids playing games.
Sometimes fantasy farm or stable players get a but too carried away.🙃

I have seen foals listed as by Secretariat in the 2000's. He died in 1989. Also removed.

Star-crossed mare Royal Delta's only foal in training with Roger Varian
One of racing’s most poignant stories is set to continue in Europe as the only foal produced by the star-crossed three-time American champion mare Royal Delta, a now two-year-old bay filly by Galileo, will be trained by Roger Varian in Newmarket.

Benjamin Leon, the Florida-based healthcare entrepreneur who paid $8.5 million for Royal Delta at the 2011 Keeneland November sale and raced her to two champion older female titles, has named the filly Delta’s Royalty and hopes she will be as superior a runner as her dam.

“She will never be sold,” Leon declared when asked how much the filly means to him. “She is the most important thoroughbred that I have because of what she represents to me from Royal Delta.

“Her physics and beauty, and her size and strength – she seems to be perfect in everything. And according to what Roger Varian has told me, she’s very smart and has not had any kind of issue whatsoever.

"She’s pointing the right way – she’s doing everything perfectly. So far, so good.”

I've been looking at pedigrees today and I noticed that Bravazo is a dam-line descendant of Donut King. Neat.

Thank you so much for the information and link. The article brought tears to my eyes. Mr. Leon’s love for the beautiful Royal Delta is touching. I hope her little girl brings him many years of happiness both at the races and as a broodmare, happiness the eluded him with Royal Delta as a broodmare.

We visited Coolmore Ireland in 2015 and everywhere we went on the grounds the folks there wanted us to know Royal Delta was on site being bred to Galileo. They were in awe of her and so grateful they could be in her presence. Everyone adored her and I can only imagine the pain of her loss felt there too. This little girl is precious indeed. Yes, we hope she in some way fills the hole in the hearts of those who loved Royal Delta, for many years to come.

Omaha Beach (War Front - Charming) won Race 5 at Santa Anita for Fox Hill.

He's a half to Take Charge Brandi, and of course a descendant of Take Charge Lady.

EDIT: I forgot to mention...he won by 9.

Sparrow, how sweet is that story. I’m sure that that those at Coolmore we’re also heartbroken since she had been there close to 3 years. I wish I could have seen her in person, I remember that lovely photo of her and her trainer, so beautiful.

Everfast, who just finished second in the Holy Bull at 128-1 odds for Calumet, is o/o a full sister to Wilko. Sire is Take Charge Indy.

I hope Everfast wins the Kentucky Derby. Winstar deserves to suffer really painful seller's remorse for selling off Take Charge Indy in about a split second. :evil:
