Prominent producer Justenuffheart dies after foaling


Justenuffheart, dam of champion Dreaming of Anna and two other graded stakes winners, recently died due to complications after foaling a Galileo colt, Mt. Brilliant Farm of Lexington, Ky., announced on Friday. The Broad Brush mare was 18.

A stakes winner herself, Justenuffheart produced four winners from six starters. Her third foal was Dreaming of Anna, a millionaire Rahy filly who won 10 of 17 starts, including the 2006 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies to lock up the divisional Eclipse Award that season.

The mare also produced multiple Grade 2 winners and young sires Lewis Michael and Justenuffhumor.

Justenuffheart has a 2-year-old colt, Crowned Heart, in training with Live Oak Plantation, as well as Galileo colts foaled in 2012 and 2013.

Out of the Lear Fan mare Kitten's First, Justenuffheart was a half sister to champion and sire Kitten's Joy, as well as multiple Grade 1 winner Precious Kitten. It is the family of Grade 1 winner Down The Aisle, as well as Grade 1 winner and stakes producer Road Princess.
