Mystic Guide (Ghostzapper/Music Note) broke his maiden at FG and became a TDN Rising Star. IIRC, Darley bred a lot of their A.P. Indy mares to GZ in 2016, so this guy might be the best they got from that cross in their 2017 crop.
I forgot how good Music Note was- even as a huge fan of Indy, she’s slipped through the cracks...Has she produced anything of note?

No. 3 winners, 4 starters, 6 foals(aged 3+), 1 unplaced in 1 start. Her top earner is the claimer, Venture Highway, who won 12 of 66 starts, with earnings of 217k. He sadly brokedown last fall.

Aww, too bad (and a shame about Venture Highway)...that’s surprising as Indy is such a great broodmare sire. Hopefully that’s changed with this guy...

Thanks !

I spelled his name wrong... it was supposed to be Ventura Highway.

That's what I thought; I assumed he'd been named after the famous street in LA

Are you sure Ventura Highway broke down? He finished his last race in Nov 2019. DId he break down in a work? There's no death report at the JC.

Two places said he suffered a catastrophic breakdown in his last race but the chart says nothing. I made myself watch the race and he crossed the finish line. So maybe he is okay? I mean idk why 2 places would lie about a horse breaking down though.

Bonny South (Munnings - Touch The Star, by Tapit) won the Fairground Oaks(G2). Her 2nd dam is Willstar, 3rd dam Nijinsky Star, 4th dam Chris Evert. Lots of G1 winners in this family.
Interesting read about her pedigree and Nijinsky Star.

I've always liked that name. It means 'Sun Daughter' and the stories of her have always fascinated me.

Hopefully this filly will live up to it. It's a bit unusual for Baffert to debut a horse in a turf sprint, but I don't know how much to read into it here.
