    What a great idea! I did see where you posted a photo of Weekend Surprise. Her exercise rider Guy is a friend of mine. About a year ago he graciously gave me permission to share one of his personal photos of her on Sarbonne's page to educate others about this amazing mare he loved so much. You'll need to click onto the link to view the photo. Please indulge me for sharing her accomplishments on the track as well as All her famous offspring. For those who don't know, she was the daughter of SECRETARIAT.

    WEEKEND SURPRISE
    (Secretariat -- Lassie Dear, by Buckpasser)
    Foaled April, 8, 1980
    A multiple graded stakes winner on the racetrack, winning the Schuylerville Stakes, Golden Rod Stakes, and Pocahontas Stakes in 1982. She finished in the money 22 of 31, with 7 wins, 5 seconds and 10 thirds.
    She was one of the reasons that Secretariat became an outstanding broodmare sire. Weekend Surprise produced Summer Squall and A.P. Indy for the partnership of Lane's End Farm owner William S. Farish and W.S. Kilroy. Summer Squall, her first foal, won the 1990 Preakness Stakes (gr. I) after running second in the Kentucky Derby (gr. I). He was retired with earnings of $1,844,282 and entered stud at Lane's End near Versailles, Ky. His added-money winners include 1999 Horse of the year Charismatic.
    His grandson Summer Bird, “the chestnut thunderbolt,” won the 2009 Belmont and Horse of the Year honors. Summer Squall also sired Rainaway..
    Weekend Surprise also figures in the pedigree of Rags to Riches, the first filly to win the Belmont in 100 years in 2007.
    A.P. Indy came along two years after Summer Squall. He was the highest-priced yearling of 1990, selling for $2.9 million at the Keeneland July yearling sale, and earned back $79,815 more than his purchase price. He scored major wins in the 1992 Belmont Stakes (gr. I) and Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) and was voted Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old colt. He has developed into a major sire at Lane's End.
    When he took Horse of the Year honors in 1992, Weekend Surprise was named Kentucky Broodmare of the Year. He became one of the most influential stallions of his time.
    Weekend Surprise was said to carry the gene to pass on the “big heart” to her offspring. She inherited this “X-factor” from Secretariat, who was found to have a naturally huge heart that was two to three times the size of a normal heart for a racehorse. Other racing greats such as Man o’ War and Eclipse were also said to have the large heart.
    In fact, Weekend Surprise is said to be a “double-copy” mare, with the X factor present on both the top and bottom of her pedigree. That means she also got the large heart gene from her dam, Lassie Dear.
    Here is what Marianna Haun , who has studied the X factor for many years, said about Weekend Surprise: ”One double copy mare is the Thoroughbred Weekend Surprise, a daughter of Secretariat that is out of a double copy dam. Weekend Surprise’s dam, Lassie Dear, produced all winners and so has her daughter, which produced Horse of the Year A.P. Indy and millionaire Summer Squall. Both sires now are producing outstanding daughters, and when mated with large-hearted mares, are producing outstanding sons.”
    In the words of Leeanne Meadows Ladin, "Christopher Chenery, founder of Meadow Stable, who created “an empire built on broodmares” with Somethingroyal, Hildene, Imperatrice and other great mares, always stressed the importance of the mare in the breeding equation. In terms of the X factor, he may have been ahead of his time. We owe him, and Secretariat’s daughters such as Weekend Surprise, our heartfelt thanks!"
    Her offspring include Honor Grades, Tiger Ridge, Devongate, Amirati, Weekend Storm, Norway, Eavesdropper, Welcome Surprise, Saithor, and Weekend In Seattle.
