As a racehorse Under Cover Lover excelled where ever she raced all over the world. Weather it was in a stakes races in New Zealand, Australia or North America, this daughter of In The Pocket was capable of mixing it with best harness racing mares in the world and beating them.

Being bred to American time meant she faced the best three year old fillies of her year in all three countries and beat them all to boot.

When she eventually was retired to stud, Under Cover Lover had won 21 races, taken a mark of 1:51.4s and won stakes totaling $864,923.

With all the racing and traveling she had done, many in the industry had doubts about the ability of Under Cover Lover to make her mark as a broodmare.

While she has yet to leave one as good as herself, Under Cover Lover is starting to build a very tidy record at stud with several of her descendants showing up in the winners list on a regular basis in the last few months.

Her first foal was Affairs Of State 2:00.1 ($50,111) who was prominent in the two and three year old fillies races without ever winning a big one.

Affairs of State is already the dam of this years very smart 2 year old, Chachingchaching 1:56.6 ($52,601).

The next winner from Under Cover Lover was the former smart 2 year old, Exotic Lover 1:59.5 ($110,336).

Exotic Lover's first two foals at stud are the talented pair of Abraxas 1:58.4 ($79,642) and Speights Girl 1:57.4 ($31,782) who both look to have plenty more wins in store.

Under The Odds, a daughter by Bettors Delight who was unraced is the dam of the smart Western Australian 2 year old this year in The Odd Lover 1:56.1 ($34,835) who will be hard to beat in this weeks $125,000 Golden Slipper at Gloucester Park.

Her only two sons to date have both ended up in Australia with Grand Cru 1:55.8  ($57,951) and High Valour 1:56.8 ($ 32,913) both in good form this season.

Two other daughters in Fortune Lover  and Art Lover (1:57.6)  have young stock on the ground in preparation for adding to the impact of Under Cover Lover at stud.

Of course a half sister to Under Cover Lover in Front Cover Lover is the dam of none other than Bettor Cover Lover 1:53.8 ($1,062,534) which just further enhances the family.

So overall Under Cover Lover is compiling a very tidy record and with young horses such as Chachingchaching and The Odd Lover looking stars in the making, her progeny and that of her daughters will continue to be highly sought after.
