The 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.Add a comment Add a comment
When in Maryland, how can you not visit the "Big Guy"?
Steve and Carolyn Coburn spent an early afternoon during Preakness week visiting Not For Love, the sire of their mare Love the Chase, dam of Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome. Making the trip the morning of May 15 to Chesapeake City, they got up close and personal to Maryland's leading sire. The Coburns and Perry Martin and his family, who make up DAP (Dumb-Ass Partners) Stable, purchased Maryland-bred Love the Chase as a 3-year-old from a partnership they had once been involved. The first foal Coburn and Martin bred is California Chrome.Add a comment Add a comment
Kudos to Not For Love grandson California Chrome, winner of the 140th Kentucky Derby! Lion Hearted grandson Commanding Curve completes Derby exacta
The first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs proved a showcase for Northview Broodmare Sire Power, as Derby favorite California Chrome, out of the Not For Love mare Love the Chase, cruised home to win by an eased up one and three-quarter lengths, with Commanding Curve, out of the Lion Hearted mare Mother, closing best of the other 18 starters to finish a rousing second in the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.
Not For Love is the broodmare sire of five stakes winners this year, more than the likes of Gone West, Unbridled, Deputy Minister and Giant's Causeway, and he ranks fifth among the nation's broodmare sires by earnings. The Mid-Atlantic region's all-time leading sire by stakes horses, Not For Love is now the grandsire of the Derby winner. Classic lines, classic results, that's Not For Love!Add a comment Add a comment
A Pennsylvania-bred JUMP START filly, a mid-May foal, turned in an impressive pre-sale work, and continued to impress buyers when sold for $160,000 at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 2014 Spring Sale of Two-Year-Olds in Training on Wednesday, April 23. Alex and JoAnn Lieblong purchased the filly out of the Dayjur mare Taanis, who is also the dam of graded stakes-placed Jockey Ridge. The family includes group winner Muqtarib.
The filly, from the second Pennsylvania-sired crop of JUMP START, is one of eight six-figure juveniles by the son of A.P. Indy to have sold over the years. Twenty-three of his sales juveniles were fillies, who have averaged more than $80,000!
The sire of 69 stakes horses in his first eight crops to race, JUMP START has gotten off to a fantastic start with his Pennsylvania-sired crops. The first, now 3-year-olds, has yielded four stakes horses this year, including Gulfstream Park stakes winner JUST CALL KENNY and Parx stakes winner ELEVATED, as well as 2-year-old graded stakes-winning filly MISS BEHAVIOUR.Add a comment Add a comment
