Silky Serenade

 

July 12, 2011: Silky Serenade at Stonestreet Farms.

In 2011, I drove to Kentucky to spend a few days touring farms in the Lexington area. It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do. I went specifically because I made it onto the list to visit Rachel Alexandra at Stonestreet Farms. While I was there, I got to meet some of the broodmare band that calls Stonestreet home. What an amazing group of mares!

One of the more curious girls was Silky Serenade. She’s by Unbridled’s Song out of the mare Smooth As Silk, which makes her a half-sister to Grade 2 winner Private Vow.¬†Barbara Banke’s Grace Stables¬†bought Smooth As Silk for $1.35 million at Keeneland in 2006 while she was pregnant with Silky Serenade, so Stonestreet has been Silky’s home her entire life.

And she’s just as sweet as she looks in these pictures!

July 12, 2011: Silky Serenade was awfully curious about my camera.
