Union Rags - Classic Strike, by Smart Strike | HIP #245E

Union Strike

HIP NO.245E | CONSIGNED BY Taylor Made Sales Agency, Agent

Competing in top stakes company, Union Strike proved her talent immediately, winning the Del Mar Debutante (G1) in only her second start. At 3, Union Strike easily won the Santa Paula Stakes at Santa Anita and finished second by a head in the Eight Belles (G2) at Churchill Downs. This year, she employed her characteristic come-from-behind style to win the Gallant Bloom (G2) at Belmont over a strong field of stakes-winning fillies and mares.

“Being a Grade 1 winner by top young sire Union Rags makes her a very special offering. We sold her at Keeneland as a weanling, so I know her conformation matches her resume on the track.”
