A beautiful chestnut, Bint Marscay (or just Binty to her friends) was a champion 2-year-old Down Under having broken her maiden in the Warwick Farm Stakes and winning the GR3 Canterbury just a month later., At three she went on to win the Tooheys Golden Slipper Stakes (GR1) and the Magic Night Stakes (GR2). At 4 she was still in top form, capturing the Chirnside Side Stakes (GR2), among others.
Binty made her way to the U.S. to be a broodmare at The Vinery in Lexington. There she had only a few offspring as she was plagued with reproductive issues, but her few babies were, like their Mom, top notch. Her outstanding daughter Bollinger was a GR1 winner and the dam of Louisiana Derby winner and Kentucky Derby contender Friesian Fire.
These days her global status is behind her, as she spends her days side by side with another great race mare, Eclipse Award winner Hidden Lake
