WinStar Farm Acquires Half Interest in My Mane Squeeze

WinStar Farm has acquired a half interest in three-time stakes winner My Mane Squeeze . A homebred for William “Buck” Butler foaled in New York, the 3-year-old daughter of Audible   is currently pointed toward the April 6 Gazelle Stakes (G3) at Aqueduct Racetrack.

All three of My Mane Squeeze’s stakes wins have come against her fellow state-breds, including a last-out 4 1/2-length score in the Feb. 18 Maddie May Stakes at Aqueduct. A $200,000 1 1/8-mile test for sophomore fillies, the April 6 Gazelle will be the Mike Maker trainee’s first time stepping up to open company and could be her chance to earn points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks. The Gazelle offers Kentucky Oaks qualifying points on a 100-50-25-15-10 scale.

“We have to see her 1) go two turns and 2) face open company, so fingers crossed,” Butler said.

My Mane Squeeze is nominated to the May 3 Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs. Butler previously expressed long-term interest in the May 17 George E. Mitchell Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (G2) at Pimlico Race Course.

Butler said WinStar’s interest in My Mane Squeeze stemmed from the fact that the filly’s sire, second crop stallion Audible, stands at their Versailles, Ky. farm. Currently ranked number one on the second crop sire list, Audible is also represented by Sweetest Chant Stakes (G3T) winner Life’s An Audible  in 2024. The son of Into Mischief   stands for a fee of $15,000.

Her speed figures and performance figures (those that take into account ground loss) are also suggestive of graded quality.

“I’m excited. I have a wonderful relationship so far with Elliott (Walden, president and CEO at WinStar Farm), and we’ll see where we go from here,” Butler said. “These are the dreams that you have when you get into the business, at least it has been so far.”

My Mane Squeeze is the second stakes winner produced from Butler’s mare In Spite of Mama . The daughter of Speightstown is also responsible for the multiple stakes-winning, graded-placed sprinter Rotknee , also campaigned by Butler and trained by Maker.
