I'll Get Along

I'll Get Along (foaled 1992 in Kentucky) is a Thoroughbred Filly racehorse by Champion Sprinter Smile and out of the stakes winning Foolish Pleasure mare Don't Worry Bout Me, tracing tail female to the mother of all blue hens, La Troienne. She was selected and purchased for Roy and Patricia Chapman by trainer Bob Camac for $40,000 at the 1993 Keeneland September yearling sale.

Trained by Camac, I'll Get along was a stakes winner of $276,969, but is best known as a broodmare through her mating to Elusive Quality that produced Smarty Jones, the 2004 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner who was voted American Champion Three-Year-Old Male Horse honors.

In 2004, I'll Get Along was sold for $5,000,000 to Gaines-Gentry Thoroughbreds, then in foal with an Elusive Quality filly. At Coolmore Stud in Ireland, she was bred to Champion sire, Sadler's Wells.
