PQ shows she was bred to Devil His Due but that's not the foal I'm looking for. 8-)
You actually can see the progeny of any horse who is in pedigreequery.com. I couldn't do this earlier when your question first appears (work and family took my time), but here is a link to the pedigree page for Melrose Wine. If you click "Reports" and select "Progeny" from the drop-down menu, you can see that the bay colt, Wild Wine, born 1997, by Devil's Bag, appears to have been her first foal (or first named foal) -- http://www.pedigreequery.com/melrose+wine
...and the reason I asked here was *because* I had already looked on PQ and he was not listed there. ;-) Thanks for adding him, MM!

I know, but didn't know anyone here had updated the pedigreequery.com info. As mentioned, I came to this late, and I was just trying to be helpful.

Can we show some love for Miesque?

I wasn't old enough to follow her when she was racing, but as a young fan I had a VHS of what was then considered to be the 10 best Breeders' Cup races ever. Her two Miles were featured of course, and I was just smitten with this filly who came over the States twice and whupped the boys. So I still get a kick when her name comes up in pedigrees.

Last weekend Alpha Centauri captured the Irish 1,000 Guineas. She is by Mastercraftsman with her third dam being Miesque.

And this weekend the handsome Study of Man, a son of Deep Impact, captures the Prix du Jockey Club. His second dam? Miesque.

Miesque was a queen. I love watching her BC Mile races!

Miesque was, and continues to be, amazing. A blue hen undoubtedly, like Toussaud. And it's interesting that some analytics/stats looks are considering inbreeding w respect to the mares... I think Urban Sea was mentioned as being similarly significant.

Found out this morning Champion #UNTAPABLE will be retuning home with 2 #FRANKEL colts (1 at foot, 1 in utero). Hopefully 1 of the 2 will be half the racehorse #CRACKSMAN is. @EpsomRacecourse @JohnGosden1 @FrankieDettori
Which farm is she going to be boarded?

Nice article about Preach and Yarn. Preach is still alive and kicking (and probably biting) at 29, sharing a pasture with fellow pensioners Starry Dreamer (dam of War Front), Hidden Reserve (dam of Reload and Defer), Matlacha Pass (dam of Point of Entry and Pine Island), and Cunning (dam of Quota).

VERY impressive bunch of mares! Wish they could be seen, out in the pasture as one of the tours. I am kicking myself for not going to Claiborne's mare tour a few years ago for Breeders Cup.

Nice to see that video, as well as the one of Ashado and her Into Mischief colt over in the 2018 Foals thread.
Kudos to Godolphin for deciding to be the anti-Coolmore, at least as far as being a more open operation when it comes to the broodmares.
When I think how long it took to learn about Vertigineux's passing, and how it seems that it is very hard to get information about the Coolmore broodmares.... :roll:

Rest in Peace, Scarlet Bouquet(JPN) 1988.
http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000213918/

She is remembered as one of the all-time great broodmares who lived in Japan, along with the multiple G1 winners producers likes of Mejiro Aurola(JPN) 1978 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000110449/, Pacificus(USA) 1981 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000383225/, Dancing Key(USA) 1983 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000383247/, Air Groove(JPN) 1993 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000275176/, Biwa Heidi(JPN) 1993 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000275176/, Oriental Art(JPN) 1997 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000316406/, Halwa Sweet(JPN) 2001 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000727544/, Cesario(JPN) 2002 http://www.jbis.jp/horse/0000743110/, and so on.

Scarlet Bouquet(JPN) was a very popular runner herself at the track, too.
And, yes, she had a Northern Taste's white.

Her dam Scarlet Ink(USA) was one of the Shadai's key foundation broodmares, whom Zenya Yoshida introduced to Japan in 1973.

Rest in Peace, Scarlet Bouquet.
Even if tinged in sadness it warms the heart to see a race horse lead a successful career on the track, successful career in the shed and live out their golden days with a nice, long life.
May her descendants get much of the same.

It goes without saying Scarlet Bouquet was my favorite mare, haha.. ;)
Hope Daiwa Scarlet can find her best partner before too long...
