HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla--Dorothy A. (D.D.) Matz' Tequilita, trained by Michael Matz, finished third in both her final two Stakes races at Gulfstream Park and now will be shipped to Claiborne Farm in Lexington, Ky., to be bred to Street Sense.
"We'll let her settle down, and probably she'll go to Kentucky in a week or so," said D.D. Matz. "She'll stay in Kentucky to foal.I'd love to see her foal at home in Unionville, but I don't want to take any chances with her. They have all the experts in Kentucky."
Matz said she didn't care whether Tequilita has a colt or a filly.
"It doesn't matter," said Matz. "I love the fillies because I get to keep them, but hopefully she'll have more than one, so we'll sell the colts and keep the fillies."
"We're just hoping she has a healthy foal, one with all its legs going in the right direction," said Matz.
"She's been a great filly for me," said Matz. "I couldn't have asked for more."
