BreederWertheimer et Frere
Halfbridled first hinted at brilliance when she sailed to victory in her career debut on July 27, 2003 at Del Mar. In her next two starts, she captured the Grade 1 Del Mar Debutante and Grade 2 Oak Leaf Stakes at Santa Anita Park. She capped her undefeated season with a clear triumph in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita Park and was named Eclipse Award champion two-year-old filly. Halfbridled returned to action the next year with a runner-up effort in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Oaks before closing her career with a second-place effort in the Grade 2 Beaumont Stakes at Keeneland Race Course. The daughter of 1990 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Unbridled never finished worse than second and earned just shy of $1-million. Richard Mandella trained her for Wertheimer Farm and she holds a special footnote as the first Breeders’ Cup winner in a non-steeplechase race to be ridden by a female jockey, Julie Krone.
