Unbridled's Song – Fleet Lady (Avenue Of Flags)
Stands and nurses. Standing at Jonabell Farm, Kentucky
Eclipse Champion two-year-old, the best at that age by Unbridled’s Song and, like him, a record-breaking Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner. His 18% career Black Type horses from starters continues to be among the best in the business – no stallion under $50K can do better. 10 juvenile Black Type horses in 2019 - more than any other stallion in America! His latest two-year-olds include two-time Stakes winner and 14-length Del Mar maiden winner Leucothea and 10-length Stakes winner Relentless Dancer. And his current crop of 107 yearlings is his biggest crop yet.
