Broodmare's breeding status:

In foal:No
Selling with a foal at foot:No

UPPER CRUST is a beautiful big, roomy mare that boasts a Champion pedigree and looks to match. Already a proven producer UPPER CRUST is the dam of 3 named foals, 2 to race, both of them winners. Her progeny have not only been a success at the track but have also provided great returns through the sale ring. Her Sebring colt made $110,000 at auction this year and was purchased by the inform stable of David Hayes and Tom Dabernig.

A pedigree that would rival any in the stud book, UPPER CRUST is by the racetrack phenomenon in Octagonal, sire of a Champion stallion in LONHRO. She is out of the first class mare FLITTER (by Bluebird), previously crowned Champion 4yo+ mare in Australia. A dual Group 1 winner who performed at Group and Stakes level on no less than 16 occasions during her career, winning almost $800,000 in the process.

Not in foal, UPPER CRUST is currently being prep'd for the upcoming breeding season and provides the perfect opportunity to head to the breeding barn on a nice early cover. Furthermore she offers an outcross to any of the Danehill line horses currently standing at stud.
