City Zip--Antique Crystal, by Devil His Due
Like rival Touch Magic, Gal About Town is by a top 10 leading stallion, in her case Grade 1 winner City Zip.
City Zip found success sprinting and at route distances as well as running in two starts on turf. He captured six graded contests and placed in seven others, gaining credit in four total Grade 1s during his time on track.
City Zip’s offspring have, to date, earned more than $36 million in purse money, and some of his notable offspring include unbeaten Grade 1 winner Bustin Stones, last year’s Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup victress Dayatthespa, multiple Grade 2 queen City to City and Grade 2 diva Reneesgotzip, who was third behind the boys in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint last November.
Antique Crystal didn’t find the kind of success City Zip enjoyed on track, but the Devil His Due mare hit a homerun with Gal About Town.
This female line has also been responsible for Group 1 heroine Chelsea Rose as well as dual French champion and classic winner Sicambre.
