Molly Corbin, who is in foal to Triple Crown winner Justify, represents a rare opportunity to buy a young broodmare from the sensational international family of Broodmares of the Year Better Than Honour and Best in Show.
The daughter of War Front epitomizes all the desirable features of a broodmare: impeccable international pedigree, on-track success, youth, beauty and global market popularity.
Six Grade/Group 1 winners are under her first two dams, including half-sister Peeping Fawn, a champion in Europe, and Eclipse Award winner Rags to Riches. Her third dam is Broodmare of the Year Best in Show and another close relative, Better Than Honour, also received the distinction. Other notable family members are Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Blush With Pride, Belmont (G1) winner Jazil, Irish champion Malinowski, Irish highweight Man of Iron and French Group 1 winner Thewayyouare. Her half-sister Crimson Rock sold for $1 million at the 2015 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
Molly Corbin sold as a weanling at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale for $650,000. After proving her worth in the marketplace, she confirmed her athletic ability by winning at age 2 in her second start. In that turf race against 11 rivals, Molly Corbin rallied from off the pace and prevailed after outdueling a challenger through the stretch. In her only other start, she was runner-up against a full field on an all-weather surface.
