    Leslie's Lady, already a star broodmare, seeks her first Derby winner
    By Nicole Russo DRF 04/26/2018
    The Kentucky Derby is not only a test of speed and stamina – it is a test of mental fortitude for a young horse, with the pressure cooker culminating in the “wall of sound” as the field turns for home in front of more than 160,000 at Churchill Downs. Mendelssohn has shown the speed and stamina, and his breeders think he has the mental fortitude to handle the stress of the May 5 Derby.
    Mendelssohn and his half-sister Beholder, a four-time Eclipse Award winner, were bred by the Clarkland Farm owned by Fred Mitchell and his mother, Nancy Mitchell.

  • "(Leslie's Lady) delivered an Eskendereya filly, then was bred to the good young sire Scat Daddy. The Eskendereya filly became ill with colic and died. Leslie’s Lady accompanied her ailing foal to the clinic, and the stress of the trip caused her to lose the Scat Daddy foal she was carrying. "

    Oh wow, poor girl :'( That had to be a really, really hard time for her.
  • When did the above happen?
  • 2014. She was bred to Scat Daddy again and this time got pregnant with Mendelssohn, who was born May 17, 2015.
