Murphy’s Gift (KY)

As One acquired its newest member of the stable in April when it bought Hip No. 130 at the OBS April Two Year in Training Sale, a two-year-old bay filly by the stallion (father) Street Sense out of the broodmare (mother) Cali Thirty Seven. The father was the 2007 Kentucky Derby winner and the mother is a stakes winner herself with a promising future as a broodmare, including two other offspring currently racing. Our new filly comes from the same family as McKinzie, winner of multiple Grade I stakes races and second in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at 4.

As One is excited about our new filly and believe that Malhouitre’s diligence and preparation will pay off, but only time will tell. The filly spent time in Florida with Gene Recio at Lynwood Stable after her purchase and moved to Kentucky under the care of trainer Brendan Walsh in June. She has been working regularly at Churchill Downs since then and looks to debut in Kentucky soon.

With racing on the horizon, the As One partners named our young filly Murphy’s Gift. The name is a nod to Isaac Murphy, a black jockey from the late 1800s who once dominated the sport. Enshrined in the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame, Murphy was a three time Kentucky Derby winner and believed by many to be one of the greatest jockeys to ever ride. As One hopes that Murphy’s Gift can bring more attention to Isaac Murphy and make sure the history of African American jockeys continues to be told more and more.
