The first foal for Grade 2 winner Keepmeinmind was born Saturday at Sequel New York in Hudson. Bred by Sequel Thoroughbreds LLC and Lakland Farm, the filly is the third foal out of the unraced Carpe Diem mare Wintrily.

“We couldn’t be happier with how this foal is built,” said Sequel’s Becky Thomas. “She has a great size and shape to her, plenty of leg and has all the parts and pedigree to be a great racehorse.”

Keepmeinmind, a 6-year-old son of the late and former leading New York-based freshman sire Laoban, stands for $5,000 at Sequel New York. A major player on the 2021 Triple Crown trail, Keepmeinmind retired with a record of 2-3-3 in 14 starts and $903,237. He won the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at 2, finished fourth in the 2021 Preakness Stakes and placed in two other graded events at 3 and finished third in the Grade 1 Woodward Stakes at 3.

Wintrily is out of the stakes-winning Any Given Saturday mare Winter Book, who is also the dam of New York-bred stakes winner Tricky Temper. Winner of the Key Cents Stakes last year at Aqueduct, Tricky Temper finished third in the recent Franklin Square Stakes at Aqueduct.

Bred by Sequel and Lakland, Wintrily is the dam of two other New York-bred foals. Her first foal, the 3-year-old Audible colt Burkan, sold for $57,000 at the 2022 Keeneland September yearling sale. Burkan is placed in two starts.

Wintrily third foal, an unnamed 2-year-old New York-bred son of Omaha Beach, sold for $110,000 at last year’s Fasig-Tipton Saratoga New York-bred yearling sale.
