The Phippses took the path from La Troienne to Super Saver

  1. This is all very timely as I have noted in the past of the lack of great Pedigrees still left in this Country. When one sees the body of work from a lifetime of these mating’s and the number of champions and great race horses one has to marvel at what a fine job was done all the way down the line. Thanks for the fine article

  2. John, thanks for the comments. Readers should be aware that you—Glencrest Farm—had an intimate role in the pedigree of the Derby winner as the breeder of Wavering Monarch, the sire of Maria’s Mon.

    To readers: John purchased privately the Buckpasser mare Uncommitted from Odgen Phipps and then bred her to the Phipps sire Majestic Light to obtain Wavering Monarch, the grandsire of Super Saver. John also had the filly Devil May Care in the Super Saver’s Derby.
