The 8YO Editor's Note mare Lead Story (owned by Stanley Gumberg's Skara Glen Stable & William Farish) won 3 Gr2-stakes & earned US$842,031; she is a half-sister to stakes-winner Capejinsky & her dam Gwenjinsky (by Seattle Dancer) is a half-sister to Gr1-winning millionaires Glitter Woman & Unbridled Elaine. Farish stands Bernardini's sire A.P.Indy at his Lane's End Farm in Kentucky. Darley chief operating officer Dan Pride confirmed: "Bernardini took to the mating naturally."
