Wilgerbosdrift’s late sire Tiger Ridge, who has been in the news of late thanks to his G1 winning son Noah From Goa, was back in the headlines on Sunday.
However, this time it was a broodmare sire that the son of Storm Cat made news.
Tiger Ridge is the broodmare sire of promising 3yo colt Iron Rob, who won the Baffle Stakes at Santa Anita.
Now a two time winner, Iron Rob –who was picking up his maiden stakes success, is a son of Candy Ride horse Twirling Candy, whose seven wins included the G1 Malibu Stakes and G2 Del Mar Derby. Twirling Candy, whose first crop are now three, is currently North America’s second leading Second Crop Sire by winners.
Iron Rob’s dam, Cold Blooded, is an unraced full sister to Tiger Ridge’s top class daughter Leah’s Secret. The latter won nine races, and over $1 000 000, including the G2 Raven Run Stakes, G2 Chilukki Stakes and G2 Top Flight Handicap.
Cold Blooded and Leah’s Secret are out of the Capote mare Lady Cruella.
