Isabella Sings, Eskendereya’s first winner as a sire in 2014, got her first stakes win on Sunday with a front-running, three-quarter length win in the $60,000 Little Silver S. at Monmouth Park.

The 3-year-old chestnut Eskendereya filly was the first of two stakes winners, along with Conquest Pacemaker in the $125,000 Toronto Cup, on the day for the Taylor Made stallion. Eskendereya moved into the top five on the Second-Crop Sire list with over $1.5 million in progeny earnings. His 32 winners to date are also second-most for any sophomore sire.

Isabella Sings, owned by her breeder Siena Farms, was challenged early in Sunday’s 1 1/16-mile turf affair by Catcha Rising Star and in deep stretch by favorite Pine Needles, but handled both threats with class to prevail in a driving finish. 

The final time was a very good 1:40.79 on the firm turf course.

Abel Castellano was handling the riding duties for trainer Todd Pletcher on the Kentucky bred filly, who ran her mark to 3-2-0 in eight starts, with earnings of $161,110. 

Isabella Sings is out of the British mare Isobel Baillie and is a half-sister to two-time stakes winner Alaura Michele, another Siena homebred. Isabella Sings’ fourth dam produced the great Singspiel and one of the top sires of the last quarter-century in Rahy.
