Renda

DK B, foaled February 8, 2006
Medaglia d'Oro - Ten Carats, by Capote

Dam of multiple G1 winner Rock Fall

by Byron Rogers - The brilliant mare Renda could lay claim to being one of the fastest and most precocious daughters of the leading international sire Medaglia d’Oro. Breaking her maiden by a widening five lengths on debut over five furlongs in the summer of her two year old career, Renda started six times at two, winning three races, two at stakes level from distances of five furlongs to a mile.

Graded stakes placed at three, Renda is out of the similarly quick and precocious Capote mare Ten Carats. This is the family of the brilliant Ancient Regime (Top filly on The 1980 French 2YO Free Hcp, Deauville Prix Morny, gr. I) and Cricket Ball (Champion sprinter in Italy in 1987, Deauville Prix Maurice de Gheest, gr. II). Renda’s sire, the El Prado stallion Medaglia d’Oro is already responsible as a broodmare sire for not only Rock Fall but the gr. I winner Rachael Valentina along with four other stakes winners from just 80 starters (7.5% SW/Starters) making him one of the most promising young broodmare sires in North America.

With this much speed in her family, it is unsurprising that Renda has already produced one of the fastest and most talented horses seen in 2015 in the shape of the ill-fated Rock Fall. A son of the Eclipse Award winning sprinter Speightstown, Rock Fall reeled off seven straight victories including wins in the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap gr. I and Vosburg Stakes gr. I at his most recent starts. Renda’s current two year old is Barbarenda, by Sidney’s Candy, who cleared out to win her maiden by four lengths at her only start to date.

Grade One winner Rock Fall is the first foal out of Renda and it is worth noting that nearly one out of every five mares that produce a graded stakes winner early in their career, will produce another before their career is over making Renda an outstanding investment for a high class breeder. Additionally, mares that produce a graded stakes winner in their first four foals, invariably see their subsequent foals sell outstandingly well in the sales ring on the understanding that mares such as her are more likely to produce another superior runner. In foal to the promising Awesome Again stallion Paynter, Renda represents a unique opportunity to secure a young high class mare by a promising broodmare sire that has already produced a Grade One winner in her short career to date with the promise of more to come.
