One of those daughters is La Pepite, whose sire Mr. Prospector also sired Grade 2-placed Lode (a champion sire in Argentina) and stakes winner Smackover Creek from Fanfreluche's stakes-winning daughter Grand Luxe (by Sir Ivor). La Pepite boasted no such credentials as a racer, placing twice from six starts, but she did fairly well as a broodmare, producing six winners from nine named foals.
Easily the best of those stakes winners was Soldera (by the good Maryland sire Polish Numbers), who won a listed stakes in England as a 3-year-old and was Group 2-placed. Her racing accomplishments plus her pedigree and a reasonably nice physical makeup made her an attractive broodmare prospect, and she sold for US$600,000 to Wertheimer et Frere at the 2004 Keeneland November mixed sale.
The Wertheimer brothers' investment paid off with Soldera's second foal, a 2007 colt by Maria's Mon. Named Exhi, he won the 2010 Coolmore Lexington Stakes (USA-G2), the 2011 Ben Ali Stakes (USA-G3), and three other races, earning $807,917. He cut no mustard as a sire, however, and in 2018 suffered the indignity of being sold for US$1,000 at the Keeneland November mixed sale. (He was at least more fortunate than some low-end horses, finding a home at Big Oaks Farm in Arizona, where he stood the 2020 season for a private fee.)
Soldera has since produced a second stakes winner as her gelded son Diluvien (by Manduro) won a listed stakes in France last year, but it is her daughter Soldata (a winning full sister to Exhi) who may be pointing the way to the future of La Pepite's branch of Fanfreluche's family. Already the dam of 2018 Prix Dollar (FR-G2) winner Alignement (by Pivotal), she added another credit to her record this week via her daughter Alda, who following up on earning Thoroughbred Daily News "Rising Star" status in her second start by winning the listed Catch a Glimpse Stakes at Woodbine.
A daughter of Munnings, Alda showed a strong closing kick and equally strong determination in nailing favored Dreaming of Drew at the wire, and those traits should stand her in good stead in her likely next start, the Natalma Stakes (CAN-G1) on September 20. In the meantime, her dam has the yearling Into Mischief colt Serifos and the weanling Tapit colt Dataman in the pipeline, both youngsters with the potential to add some more trimming to a well-ornamented family.
