Great looks—a $1.85 million Saratoga yearling sales topper. . . By GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, one of the world’s most sought after sires... Recorded one of the fastest Beyer speed figures of 2007... A multiple graded stakes winner who won easily at a classic distance...FAIRBANKS is the destination for anyone searching for a top-echelon horse at a reasonable price. And the proof was in his first book of 103 mares bred in 2009, tops in the Mid-Atlantic region!
From his first crop of nearly 70 foals, many out of stakes-winning or stakes-producing mares, FAIRBANKS sired the co-highest priced weanling at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December Mixed sale, and had a $115,000 yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Eastern Fall sale, the fourth-highest price at that sale. FAIRBANKS is also the sire of a $50,000 Keeneland colt and a $45,000 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic filly – of his yearlings sold, half brought $21,000 or more.
His average for the Eastern Fall Sale was $31,611 for nine sold, an impressive return on investment. And he has plenty more to come. The popular son of GIANT’S CAUSEWAY has had books of more than 70 mares each of the past two seasons.
A multiple graded stakes winner of $879,768, FAIRBANKS ran a 115 Beyer speed figure when scoring in the 2007 Tokyo City H.-G3 by nearly seven lengths at Santa Anita. Only one other older horse running a distance on dirt had a higher number that year, Eclipse Award winner LAWYER RON.
And FAIRBANKS consistently put up big numbers – in 13 starts on the main track at ages 4 and 5, he recorded Beyers of 100 or higher seven times, with the other six in the 90s. A half-brother to Gr. 2 winner and $462,854-earner KEATS and Gr. 3-placed juvenile GRAND SCORE, FAIRBANKS is out of a half-sister to DARN THAT ALARM, STRONG PERFORMANCE and JIGGS ALARM.
Watch for his exciting first crop of runners at the races this year!
