Name: FLORENCIO - Colt
Foaled: March 12, 2014
Dam: Jasmine Gardens by Mineshaft
Sire: Flower Alley

There was very little not to like about this colt. He stood over a lot of ground. He had a big
walk with a great over stride. He looked like he could grow a bunch. So, how did he stay
affordable? Well, he is from Flower Alley, a great race horse and the best sire by Distorted
Humor. However, the fickle buying market never fell in love with this sire and prior to this
horse walking through the sale ring it had been announced Flower Alley was sold to South
Africa. Also, buyer's have short term memories. Recent visions of American Pharoah
obscured the not-so-distant near triple-crown run of Flower Alley's son, I'll Have Another.
Couple the lackluster sire enthusiasm, with a short tail and an early spot in the auction and
we were set up well to pounce on this one at a good value when he came through the ring.

This horse has trained well. He has also grown significantly since the fall. We have him
turned out right now, because he is bred to run Classic distances and there is no reason to
rush him along. Flower Alley won the Travers and ran second in the Breeder's Cup Classic.
Florencio's Dam, Jasmine Gardens, was stakes placed twice and won four races all at a mile
or more. Her sire, Mineshaft, won more than $2.2MM during his four-year-old year,
winning seven stakes at distances between 9-10 furlongs. We like what we are seeing in
Florencio, but will need to be patient to start him at the right distances later in his two-yearold
year. What could be more exciting than having a well-bred colt, designed to run
distances between 8-12 furlongs heading into his three-year-old year? Who knows…good
things often come to those who wait.
