Ruby Lips is out of the Rubiano mare It’s a Ruby, who never managed to break her maiden on track but has found success in the breeding shed by producing stakes winners Like a Gem and Win and Reign as well as dual Grade 3-placed Cool Gator.
Like a Gem is herself the dam of Grade 3 winner Hard Not to Like, who, like Ruby Lips, is a daughter of Hard Spun. Hard Not to Like ran sixth in last year’s Kentucky Oaks following a runner-up finish in the Grade 1 Ashland.
Hard Spun was a Grade 1 winner on track, earning more than $2.6 million while placing in the likes of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Breeders’ Cup Classic.
His offspring includes the likes of reigning champion three-year-old filly Questing as well as Grade 1 diva Zo Impressive.
Ruby Lips’ dam is a half-sister to Grade 1 winner and sire Firery Ensign as well as stakes scorers Senor Verde and Kimberlight.
This female family is also responsible for Venezuelan champion Tan Bonita, dual Canadian champion Ben Fab, and Grade/Group 2 heroes Run Away and Hide and Davide Umbro.
