In memoriam: Game Plan

Danzig – Cadillacing by Alydar  
May 2, 1993 – January 7, 2015 
 

52 Black-Type Performers and Counting 

By five-time champion sire Danzig, Game Plan has sired 25 stakes winners and 27 stakes horses to date, including 8 graded stakes performers led by Grade-1 winner MISTICAL PLAN.

Game Plan’s offspring have so far bankrolled more than $13.5 million in earnings. His sire statistics boast over 240 winners and average earnings per starter of more than $41,000.  Top runners are multiple graded stakes winners MISTCAL PLAN ($816,790), current multiple Grade-2 stakes winner ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR ($727,504), followed by Grade-3 stakes winner CELTIC DREAMIN ($600,543) and stakes winners and multiple graded stakes placed MELANIEHASTHEPAPERS ($311,152) and LADY GAMER ($292,115).

Bred in Kentucky by Ogden Phipps, Game Plan hails from a premier female line: His dam was the brilliant Grade-1 winner and producer Cadillacing, by Alydar, and a full sister to Easy Goer, the Eclipse Award-winning 2-year-old colt and classic winner at age 3. His second dam was the Eclipse Award Champion handicap mare Relaxing.

Excellence runs deep in Game Plan’s immediate family since he is a full brother to Grade-1 winner and sire Strolling Along. He is also the half brother of Grade-2 winner and graded stakes producer Cat Cay, and of multiple graded stakes placed sire Lion Hearted.

Update: Game Plan was humanely put to sleep at E.A. Ranches after he was found recumbent in his pasture on the morning of January 7, 2015. He was 22 years old.
