My Sistersledge brings it home in the All Brandy - Maryland Horse Breeders Association

John and Cheryl Banner’s multiple stakes-winning homebred My Sistersledge had the final say when she pushed past Ghoul’s Night Out to win the $75,000 All Brandy by a half-length on Maryland Pride Day, Saturday, Aug. 17, at Laurel Park.

Racing in the middle of the five-horse field early, My Sistersledge was conserved by jockey Julian Pimentel behind pacesetting longshot Anna Boo Boo and Ghoul’s Night Out, winner of the Jameela Stakes last time out. Coming around the final turn, Pimentel moved the 5-year-old mare to the outside, went five-wide down the stretch and drove to the wire, completing the one and a sixteenth-mile stakes for Maryland-bred or Maryland sired fillies and mares in 1:41.81.

The Mike Trombetta trainee, with a career mark of 8-2-7 in 24 starts and $404,182 in earnings, earned her sixth win in 10 career tries over the Laurel turf and has never been worse than third. Winner of the past two editions of the Maryland Million Ladies Stakes, My Sistersledge looks to continue her streak this fall.

A daughter of Etched out of the unraced mare Blushing Bride (by Miesque’s Son), My Sistersledge is one of six winners from seven starters for her dam. Her year-younger full brother, My Brothersledge, was an allowance winner over the Laurel Park turf in July. Blushing Bride produced a Mosler filly for the Banners this past March and was bred to Karakontie (Jpn).

MHBA and its sales history

The leadership of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association tackled a new venture in the association’s first decade. In November 1938, the MHBA held its first sale of yearlings, horses in training, mares and weanlings “where Eastern buyers can replenish their stables before going to winter races, where Eastern breeders can purchase desirable mares for their farms close to home, and where the local breeders can find a ready market for the products of their farms that they did not wish to send to Saratoga.”
