Grade 1 stakes winner Don’t Tell Sophia is a daughter of Congaree and a half-sister to Canadian stakes winner Summer Song. She is being offered in foal to leading sire Medaglia d’Oro. A model of consistency throughout her five-year racing career, Don’t Tell Sophia finished first, second or third in 20 of her 24 lifetime starts for earnings of more than $1.3 million. She won 11 races, seven of those in stakes company. She captured the Juddmonte Spinster (G1) in thrilling fashion last fall at Keeneland, making a late charge rounding the far turn to defeat a field that included champion Close Hatches and Grade 1 winner Ria Antonia. Her strong closing kick also powered her from last place to victory over favored Wine Princess in the 2013 Chilluki Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs. Trainer Phil Sims purchased Don’t Tell Sophia at Keeneland’s 2009 September Yearling Sale; he co-owns the mare with Jerry Namy.

2014 Juddmonte Spinster (G1)
She's got that one big run and it doesn't matter how far the distance is. Phil Sims, owner/trainer
She kind of gallops behind them and does her thing back there. When it comes time for her to put in her run, it sure is explosive. Joe Rocco, Jr., jockey
She's tough as nails...She shows up every time. We're so delighted with her. Phil Sims, owner/trainer
That was fun...She always gives you a lot of confidence. She picked it right up at the half mile pole and did it all on her own. Channing Hill, jockey
