Pedigree

Divine Park--Betty's Solutions, by Eltish

Download Full Pedigree (PDF)

Blonde Fog got off to a flying start, romping in her maiden debut prior to just being caught when trying to wire the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet.

In that way, the bay miss followed in the hoofsteps of her sire, Divine Park, who captured the first three races of his career when starting out as a sophomore, including the Grade 3 Withers.

Divine Park would go on as a four-year-old to post another three-race win streak that included the Grade 1 Met Mile and Grade 3 Westchester Handicaps.

Blonde Fog is from Divine Park’s first crop to race and, along with romping stakes winner Dancinginthecircle, is considered his best offspring to date.

Blonde Fog is out of the Eltish mare Betty’s Solutions, making her a half-sister to listed-placed Francesca d’Gorgio, who is best known as the dam of last year’s Group 1 Fillies’ Mile third Amazonas.

Betty’s Solution never competed against stakes company, but this female family is loaded with black-type.

Among the successful runners are Grade 1 queen My Trusty Cat and Grade 2 mother-son duo Crowned and Best of Luck, the latter of whom also ran fourth in the Belmont Stakes.

This is also the female line of Grade 2-placed Kentucky Derby hopeful Dewey Square.
