The first reported foals by multiple grade 1 winner Imperial Hint   have arrived, according to Clear Creek Stud.

Kevin Atwood’s Colonel Thoroughbreds bred a bay colt, which is the third foal out of the Artie Schiller  mare Silent Brigade, whose first foal just turned 2.

Tommy Hewett’s Coulee Croche Thoroughbreds and Tracie Crochet bred a gray filly (that appears black) out of the Najran mare Brushfirefairytale , a winner of $118,632 and the dam of Jolie Gris, who scored on debut in September.

Bred in Florida by Shade Tree Thoroughbreds out of the Lahint  mare Royal Hint and campaigned by Raymond Mamone, Imperial Hint is a four-time grade 1 winner of in excess of $2.2 million. Nicknamed “The Little Rocket,” the son of Imperialism  took the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap (G1) at Saratoga Race Course and the Vosburgh Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park in 2018 and defended his title in both races in 2019 for trainer Luis Carvajal Jr. In the 2019 edition of the Alfred G. Vanderbilt, he set a track record for six furlongs in 1:07.92. He retired from racing with a 14-2-4 record from 25 starts.

 

Imperial Hint was bred to both Thoroughbred mares and Quarter Horse mares in 2021. He stands at Clear Creek Stud near Folsom, La. as the property of a syndicate for an advertised fee of $3,000 live foal.
