Marriage Material was a New York-bred daughter of Broken Vow, the sire of 64 career stakes winners, including Grade 1 winning fillies Unbridled Belle, Cotton Blossom, Rosalind and Sassy Image.
She was the first foal from her dam, Equisize, a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Equality and stakes winner Equal Opportunity, all three of whom are out of Equilibrate, a half to Grade 1 winner and Horse of the Year Peaks and Valleys, to stakes winner Alternate (the dam of Grade 2 winner Alternation and stakes winner Interrupted), and to a pair of other stakes producers. Marriage Material was inbred 4×4 to Pin Oak Stud’s foundation mare Strike a Pose, and bred on the same cross (by Broken Vow out of a Forestry mare) as three-time Graded turf stakes winner Divine Oath.
Unfortunately, after finishing 3rd once in 5 starts, Marriage Material suffered a fatal case of colic – a tragic ending for a very sweet, hard-luck filly who we purchased for $25,000 at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Timonium 2YO sale on behalf of a racing partnership.
