Imoto (FL)


TB, B, F, Foaled February 12, 2019

Imoto is by Handsome Mike (Scat Daddy / Classic Strike, by Smart Strike) who, in his 1st and 2nd crop was #1 by Black Type Performers, by Number of Winners, and by Progeny Earnings. In his 3rd crop he was #1 by Number of Winners and by Progeny Earnings. Currently, in his 4th crop season he is #1 by Number of Winners.

Handsome Mike is a millionaire and a multiple graded-stakes winner on dirt, turf, and synthetic. He won or placed in eight graded events and was on the board in stakes at 10 major tracks – coast-to-coast. Handsome Mike broke his maiden at Santa Anita in his second start at two, then finished second in the Gr.3 Generous Stakes at Hollywood Park in his third start. He won the Gr.2 Pennsylvania Derby by two lengths over Golden Ticket and Alpha – co-winners of the Gr.1 Travers Stakes.

Imoto’s dam, Kentucky-bred Red Baroness (Smarty Jones / Must Be A Lady, by Lord at War (ARG)) has produced three of Circle 8 Ranch and Tropical Racing’s current runners including Aizu, Stakes-Placed Yafa, and Imoto.
