Bio

Imported from Argentina as a 4-year-old in 1991, Paseana became a two-time Eclipse Award winner under the care of trainer Ron McAnally.

 

A daughter of Ahmad out of the Flintham mare Pasiflin, Paseana was bred by Haras Vacacion and won five races in Argentina before being purchased by Sidney and Jenny Craig to be campaigned in America.

 

Sent to McAnally’s base in California, Paseana finished second in her first North American start in 1992 before embarking on a seven-race win streak that included five Grade 1s: the Santa Maria Handicap, Santa Margarita Invitational Handicap, Apple Blossom Handicap, Milady Handicap and Vanity Handicap. Paseana later won her sixth Grade 1 that year with a dominant victory in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff by four lengths. With a record of 7-1-0 from nine starts and earnings of $1,518,290, Paseana won the 1992 Eclipse Award for Champion Older Mare.

 

As a 6-year-old, Paseana repeated in the Apple Blossom and Milady and added another Grade 1 win in the Spinster Stakes. However, her attempt to repeat in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff came up a nose short to Hollywood Wildcat. Paseana’s campaign was still considered the best of her class and she once again won the Eclipse for Champion Older Mare.

 

In 1994 as a 7-year-old, Paseana won the Santa Margarita Handicap for the second time and added a Grade 2 victory in the Chula Vista Handicap. She won the Grade 2 Hawthorne Handicap the following year at age 8 before being retired in the summer of 1995 with a career record of 19-10-2 from 36 starts and earnings of $3,171,203. Paseana won a total of 14 graded stakes in America, including 10 Grade 1s.

 

Paseana died on June 21, 2006 at Haras San Ignacio de Loyola in Argentina at the age of 19.
