Somewhat overlooked in his first start of the year, FORDUBAI was always in contention in the $100,000 Louisiana H. at Fair Grounds on Jan. 18, and charged for home to capture his second career stakes win in stellar fashion, earning a 103 Beyer Speed Figure while completing the mile and a sixteenth in 1:43.37. A little over a length back was JUMP START’s millionaire son PRAYER FOR RELIEF.
Bred and owned by Jim Tafel, FORDUBAI has now won five of his 11 career starts, for earnings of $327,452. A stakes winner and graded
stakes-placed at 3, he has now won on the turf, all-weather and dirt.
E DUBAI has been a sire of diversity - from Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Desert Code to graded/group winning milers to Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Fort Larned. The sire of 33 stakes winners in his first seven crops to race, E DUBAI was the nation’s leading sire standing outside of Kentucky in 2012 and the Mid-Atlantic region’s leading active sire in 2013. A tremendous value, right here in the Mid-Atlantic region - definitely not to be overlooked!
JUMP START is the sire of three stakes horses in January, including exciting 3-year-old JUST CALL KENNY, winner of the Spectacular Bid S. at Gulfstream Park. His son PRAYER FOR RELIEF, his richest runner with $1,590,913 in earnings, has won or placed in 16 stakes, and has hit the board in stakes each year for five consecutive years. JUMP START runners keep going, and going, and going!
