Graded Stakes Winner by TAPIT to Northview Maryland for 2015

bandbox2BANDBOX, a four-length winner of the 2014 General George H.-G3 and a son of Leading sire TAPIT, will stand his first season at stud in 2015 at Northview Stallion Station, in Chesapeake City, Maryland, according to an announcement from the farm. His stud fee will be $2,500 live foal and he is now available for inspection at the farm.

“We’re extremely excited to stand BANDBOX here in Maryland and, as far as we know he is the first Graded Stakes Winner by TAPIT to stand outside of Kentucky,” said Richard Golden, President/CEO of Northview Stallions.

In the $250,000 General George H.-G3, BANDBOX got away well and was sitting in sixth down the backstretch, about four lengths off the lead. He began his rally around the final turn but found himself behind a wall of horses as they neared the top of the stretch. BANDBOX swung six-wide into the stretch and then accelerated away from the field to win impressively registering a 102 Beyer Speed Figure.

Raced by Ellen Charles’ Hillwood Stable and trained by Rodney Jenkins, BANDBOX won his first three starts at two, including a 9 1/2-length runaway win in the $100,000 Charles Town Juvenile S. He also rallied, after stumbling at the start, to take Belmont’s Sleepy Hollow S. as the heavy favorite, and in his debut he put in a rally to win on the turf. In the fourth and final start of his juvenile year, BANDBOX finished on the board in the Remsen S.-G2 behind To Honor and Serve and Mucho Macho Man after a troubled trip throughout.


Summertime fun with JUMP START!

Graded stakes, winning streaks. . . 3-year-olds and older runners. . . distances short, long and in between. . . JUMP START runners have been having great fun during this summer season!

The JUMP STARTs were jumping the last week of July into the early days of August. His millionaire son PANTS ON FIRE returned to the races for the first time since a December trip to Japan, and hit the board in the Gr. 2 Monmouth Cup S. at Monmouth Park on July 27. It was the dark bay 6-year-old’s 11th time on the board in a stakes race, his eighth in graded company. George and Lori Hall’s handsome homebred now has earned $1,217,635.

It was a Grade 1 effort for JUMP START’s 3-year-old daughter MISS BEHAVIOUR, who finished second in Saratoga’s Gr. 1 Test S. on Aug. 2. Seven times in nine starts Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum’s pretty bay filly has earned black-type. And she has also earned $442,000.

Sprinting is the name of the game for UNCLE TODD, a 5-year-old JUMP START son who earlier this year captured the four and a half-furlong Webb Snyder Charles Town Dash S. and on Aug. 2 finished third at the same distance in the West Virginia Legislature Chairman’s Cup S. at Mountaineer for owner Robert L. Cole Jr.

BULLSBAY’s first winner is tough and game!

bullheadThere was no bullying this BULLSBAY! Making his first start at historic Saratoga 

on Thursday, July 31, 2-year-old BULLHEADED BOY survived being banged around at the start, a quick pace, going wide around the far turn and a stretch battle to win by a half length going five furlongs! He is the first winner from the first crop for BULLSBAY.

Owned by Gary Barber and trained by Todd Pletcher, BULLHEADED BOY, who last sold for $115,000 at the Ocala Breeders Sales Company 2-year-olds in training sale, completed the distance in :58.67 over a sloppy (sealed) track while defeating seven others as the 3-to-5 favorite. The colt, bred in New York by Zeke Kobak and Danny Bramer, is eligible for many lucrative programs – in addition to racing in New York, he is from a Maryland-sired crop of BULLSBAY and can also target the Maryland Million.

BULLSBAY stood his first three seasons at Northview Stallion Station in Maryland before moving to Northview PA for the 2014 season. One of the best of Tiznow’s runners at stud, BULLSBAY also proved his love for Saratoga with a win in the Gr. 1 Whitney Handicap in 2009.

JUMP START's Argentine sensation!

livingstoneLIVINGSTONE, an Argentina-bred 3-year-old son of JUMP START, has become one of the best milers in South America after taking the Gr. 1 Gran Premio Estrellas Mile, the Argentine version of the Breeders’ Cup, while facing older runners on Saturday, June 28 at Hipodromo Argentino de Palermo. The striking blaze-faced dark bay defeated a field of 10 while stopping the clock in a dazzling 1:33.41 on the main track. Rated patiently off swift fractions of :21.86, :44.02 and 1:07.89, he swept past the pacesetter in midstretch, drew off quickly and held the lead safe to win by a length. 

LIVINGSTONE's Group 1 win comes hot on the heels of his obliteration of the field in the Gr. 2 25 De Mayo De 1810 in May, which he won by 21 lengths! LIVINGSTONE now has five wins from 13 starts. JUMP START is the sire of 11 graded stakes winners, and is the leading active sire in the Mid-Atlantic region this year by number of stakes winners, with seven.

ORIENTATE'S son DECLASSIFY wins Grade 1 battle!

DeclassifyORIENTATE'S 4-year-old son DECLASSIFY did not back down and did not give up as the lightly-raced Bob Baffert-trained colt battled down the stretch to win the $300,000 Gr. 1 Triple Bend Stakes at Santa Anita on Saturday, June 28. After leading early and being passed on the far turn, the Kaleem Shah Inc. colorbearer caught Cyclometer in the final strides to win by a nose in his stakes debut.

“I thought I was beat at the top of the stretch,” said rider Martin Garcia. “My horse was trying everything, every step of the way. He never gave up. Cyclometer moved into me a little bit in the stretch and my horse was intimidated. He responded again though, he’s such a good horse.”

Final time for the seven furlongs was a snappy 1:22.03.


JUMP START and GREAT NOTION fillies charge to stakes victories at Pimlico!

Miss BehaviourThe sun appeared and brightened the day, and so too did the girls by Northview sires, as MISS BEHAVIOUR and OUR EPIPHANY led the way in their respective stakes to score on Black-Eyed Susan Day!

Stepping up first was MISS BEHAVIOUR. The filly from the first Pennsylvania-sired crop by JUMP START was seeking her first win of the year after a spectacular juvenile campaign as graded stakes winner and Pennsylvania-bred champion.

Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum’s homebred filly ran a solid third in the Stormy Blues S. in her sophomore debut in April. On one of the biggest stages of the year she ran fantastic in the $100,000 Miss Preakness S. Taking command from the start, the pretty bay blistered through fractions of :22.74 and :46.03 and still had plenty left to hold off eight other fillies. She cruised home by nearly two lengths in 1:10.85 for six furlongs over a drying out track rated good after torrential rains in the morning. Trained by Phil Schoenthal, MISS BEHAVIOUR now has a record of four wins from seven starts, plus a second and a third, for earnings of $312,000.
