Caleb's Posse represented by first mares in foal


Multiple Grade 1 winner Caleb's Posse, who is standing his first season at Three Chimneys Farm in Midway, Ky., was represented by his first four mares confirmed in foal this week.

Divine Cindy, Dontstealmythunder, Numero d’Oro and Elusive Sabu were all scanned in foal off their February covers to the 5-year-old Posse horse. All four mares are boarded at Candy Meadows Farm for Everett Dobson who, along with Don McNeill, co-owned Caleb's Posse during his racing career.

Divine Cindy, a 5-year-old Pulpit mare, is a half-sister to stakes winner Honor the Flag, stakes-placed Our Sacred Honor, and stakes producer Spencers Storm. Divine Cindy's second dam is Grade 1 winner Miss Josh; it is the family of Grade or Group 1 winners Royal Mountain Inn and Currency.

Dontstealmythunder, a 10-year-old Thunder Gulch mare, is the dam of two winners from three foals to start. Out of the Grade 3-placed Meadowlake mare Meadow Vista, she is a half-sister to Grade 3-placed stakes winner Bachata.

The unraced Numero d’Oro, a 5-year-old Medaglia d'Oro mare, is a half-sister to stakes-placed winners Ice Lady and One Dixie.

Elusive Sabu, a 5-year-old Elusive Quality mare, is a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Mykindasaint. Their dam, the Secretariat mare Swaalif, is a half-sister to four stakes horses.

Caleb's Posse won four graded stakes races in 2011, including a victory over classic winner Shackleford in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Churchill Downs. It was his second Grade 1 win of the season along with a win over champion Uncle Mo in the King's Bishop Stakes at Saratoga Race Course. Caleb's Posse also won the Grade 2 Amsterdam Stakes, Grade 3 Ohio Derby and Smarty Jones Stakes, and placed in two other graded stakes events.

Multiple Grade 1-placed as a 4-year-old, Caleb's Posse retired with eight wins from 19 career starts for earnings of $1,423,379.

Out of the Slewacide mare Abbey's Missy, Caleb's Posse is standing his initial season at Three Chimneys for a fee of $10,000.
