All thoroughbred foals are born into great hope, of course, but Shared Account’s first born will be watched closely. Bernardini, who won the Preakness in 2006 and was named the top 3-year-old that year, is highly thought of. His first group of colts included Stay Thirsty, his second had Alpha. Both ran in the Kentucky Derby and would go on to win the Travers Stakes later in the summer of their 3-year-old racing years. Bernardini also traces his lineage back to Secretariat and, if you go back far enough, Sagamore Farm’s biggest name, Native Dancer. The “Grey Ghost” is buried on the farm.
