The BC site seemed to imply Shop Again was something. Being by Wild Again a BC race winner. But as Gary points out she has simply burnt money as a Dam.

So I went to Equibase to see how she fared in competition. A Florida bred, she debuted @ SAR in 2004 and took until 2006 (some 16 races later) to win her first race. A 40-45k maiden claiming race at Belmont. Trained by H. Jerkens and ridden by Chantal (Lady Godiva) Sutherland. Claimed by James Imperion out of that race.

She left New York for easier pickings and found just that at Prarie Meadows and Remington. Eventually getting fast enough to win a minor Stakes and Allowance race in good time.

Apparently with a questionable racing future and the advancin=ng years she was sold to a Japanese buyer as breeding stock.

Bottom Line as you point out

She is/was a tomato can!

Whatever hope I had in Jasper Great, is a tiny fraction of what it was. How he won a stakes race at a major Japanese track (by 10 lengths) really clouds the picture probably reducing the amount of my bet to the minimum.
