Gemologist – Tartan Lady by Malibu Moon
2015 Empire, LLC
Unbeaten graded stakes winner at two, G1 Wood Memorial winner at three, Gemologist has all the tools to become a terrific sire. The son of two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner and standout sire Tiznow hails from a strong female family and Pirate’s Treasure is a member of his first crop. Tartan Lady, a daughter of the outstanding Malibu Moon, is a half-sister to a pair of graded stakes winners in Queenie Belle and Canon Can. In addition to earning over $600,000, Queenie Belle is the dam of Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic winner Unrivaled Belle.
Pirate’s Treasure is in training with Jimmy Jerkens at Belmont Park. He is entered in the First Race on Sunday, March 18 going six furlongs in a 4YO&up Maiden Special Weight race for New York breds. Jockey Angel Arroyo gets the mount and will break from post position three in a field of six.
