United Spirit to Stand in New Mexico
RSS Feeds Thursday, February 10, 2011
United Spirit, an 11-year-old stallion by Mr Prospector, will stand the 2011 season in Anthony, New Mexico.

Bred in Kentucky by Mark Stanley, United Spirit is one of 10 foals produced by the late Her Temper, a mare by 1980 champion 3-year-old colt Temperence Hill who won the 1994 Beaumont Stakes (G2) at Keeneland Racecourse.

United Spirit's second dam, Marathon Girl, was a winning daughter of Fleet Nasrullah who ran third in the 1979 Spinaway Stakes (G1) at Saratoga Racecourse in New York. The mare foaled nine winners from as many starters, including Anthenian Girl, a stakes-placed daughter of Noble Nashua and half sister to Her Temper.

United Spirit traces back to his third dam, Miss Twist, a stakes-winning mare by Prince John who produced the stakes-winning Olden Times filly Pig Party, and Fleet Twist, a colt by Fleet Nasrullah who ran third in the '79 Bing Crosby Handicap at Del Mar.

United Spirit will stand with King Of The Hunt, a winning 15-year-old son of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew and full brother to Grade 3 winner and 1990 Hollywood Futurity (G1) runner-up General Meeting. To date, King Of The Hunt has sired two stakes winners and the earners of more than $1.3 million from 32 starters.
