Multiple Grade 1 Winner RUSHING FALL to be offered at Fasig-Tipton November
Female turf division leader RUSHING FALL, a Breeders’ Cup Champion and multiple Grade 1 winner, will be offered at this year’s Fasig-Tipton November Sale. The five-year-old mare will be consigned by Indian Creek, agent, on behalf of the Edwards family’s e Five Racing Thoroughbreds.
Trained throughout her career by four-time Eclipse Champion trainer Chad Brown, RUSHING FALL is a six-time Grade 1 winner of $2,553,000. She is one of just three females in the modern era to win Grade 1 races at 2,3,4, and 5, alongside BEHOLDER and LADY ELI.
Since winning her career debut at Belmont in September of her two-year-old year, RUSHING FALL has competed exclusively in graded stakes company, amassing 10 career graded stakes wins at five different tracks from coast-to-coast. Her impeccable record counts 11 wins and two seconds from 14 career starts.
At two, RUSHING FALL won the Jessamine S. (G3) by more than three lengths in her second career start. In her next start, she captured the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) on her way to being named a finalist for Eclipse Champion Two-Year-Old Filly.
At three, she notched wins in the Appalachian S. (G2) and Lake Placid S. (G2), followed by a gate-to-wire win in the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II S. (G1).
She began her four-year-old campaign with another scintillating front-running win in the Jenny Wiley S. (G1). She followed that win up with a victory in the prestigious Just a Game S. (G1) in near course record time.
This year, at five, RUSHING FALL is in arguably the best form of her career. She began her 2020 campaign with another brilliant wire-to-wire victory in the Beaugay S. (G3), and then successfully defended her title in the Jenny Wiley S. (G1), setting a new course record for 1 1/16 miles in 1:39.02. Most recently she captured Saratoga’s prestigious Diana S. (G1) in near course record time on August 23.
RUSHING FALL is now pointing towards a return to the Breeders’ Cup, prior to the Fasig-Tipton November Sale on Sunday, November 8 in Lexington, Kentucky.
Purchased as a yearling at Fasig-Tipton’s Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale by agent Mike Ryan on behalf of the Edwards family, RUSHING FALL is by leading international sire MORE THAN READY. He is the sire of the dams of more than 90 black-type winners worldwide.
RUSHING FALL is out of the FORESTRY mare AUTUMNAL, a 100% winner-producer. She is a half-sister to stakes winner and multiple graded stakes placed MILAM, as well as stakes placed AUTUMN SONG. RUSHING FALL is also a half-sister to HOMECOMING DANCE, the dam of stakes winner EMPIRE LINE, as well as HANG A STAR, a graded stakes placed performer this year. Her immediate family includes G1 winners ALBERT THE GREAT and TRUMPET’S BLARE.
“RUSHING FALL is one of the more brilliant turf females we have seen in some time, compiling a near perfect record in capturing her division’s most prestigious and competitive races,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning. “She is a true collector’s item, and we are honored that the Edwards Family has entrusted her sale to Fasig-Tipton.”
