Tequilita finished third in her final race before retiring to a life as a broodmare

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.

Tequilita Smart Halo 2016 615x400 thumbTequilita "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."

 

TEQUILITA is by Union Rags out of Sangrita, and Michael Matz trained both of her parents, including saddling Union Rags to win the Belmont Stakes.

Union Rags, who stands for $60,000 is currently the Leading Third-Crop Stallion by G1 winners.

Street Sense, who won the Jim Dandy and the Travers Stakes, stands for $50,000.

Tequilita , a multiple graded states winner, retired with$700,300 in earnings.

She raced twice in 2019, finishing almost identical third in both the G2, $200,000 Inside Information Stakes at Gulfstream on March 16 after finishing third in theG3 $150,000 Royal Delta Stakes at Gulfstream on Feb.16.

In the Royal Delata, Blamed won by 1 1/4 lengths over Jala Jal, who was a neck in front of Tequilita, and in the Inside Information, America's Tale won by 1 1/4 lengths over Razorback Lady, who was a head in front of Tequilita, who in both races was either 2 or 3 lengths in front of the fourth placed horse.
