A Shin Forward was represented by his first American-born foal on March 5, when Miney’s Awesome (Awesome Again – Mine Tonight by Upper Nile) produced a filly. Miney’s Awesome is the dam of six winners of seven to race, and is a half-sister to three stakes horses. The filly was bred by Vivien Malloy’s Edition Farm.

A Shin Forward (Forest Wildcat – Wake Up Kiss by Cure the Blues), who raced in Japan, was also bred by Mrs. Malloy. The defining victory of A Shin Forward’s racing career came in the 2010 Group 1 Japan Autumn International Mile Championship. The same year he also won the Group 3 Hankyu Hai. Over five campaigns, A Shin Forward won three stakes and placed in five more, and retired with $3,416,216 in earnings. He is the third all-time leading New York-bred earner and the state’s all-time leading earner on the turf.

A Shin Forward, who already has five crops of racing age in Japan, is owned in partnership by Edition Farm and Lady Sheila Stable, LLC.
