Kentucky Derby-winning connections visit Not For Love

CoburnWhen 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.

JUMP START juvenile among standouts at record breaking OBS Spring Sale

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.

Welcome Home E Dubai and Jump Start!

ED-JSNorthview Stallion Station's E Dubai and Jump Start, the top two active Mid-Atlantic sires in 2013, are back in the region and ready for the upcoming breeding season. E Dubai has taken up residence in his new home at the Maryland division, and Jump Start returns to Northview PA.

E DUBAI son FORDUBAI starts off year in grand style!

LouisanaSomewhat 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 3-year-old JUST CALL KENNY spectacular in Spectacular Bid

KennyJUST CALL KENNY, making his third career start and first in stakes company when an allowance race didn’t fill, produced a spectacular rally to capture the $100,000 Spectacular Bid S. going away at Gulfstream Park on Saturday, Jan. 4. The 3-year-old son of JUMP START, totally overlooked at nearly 20-1 in the field of six, scored by two and a quarter lengths while stopping the clock in 1:10.58 for six furlongs.

Breaking slowly and well back while last in the early going under Joe Bravo, JUST CALL KENNY shot to the front with a powerful move along the rail, flying past graded stakes horses Corfu, Hollywood Talent and hot prospects Trail Blaze and C. Zee. “This horse has really had a lot of talent all along,” said Bravo.

Trained by Patrick McBurney for ABL Stable, Bossone, Cahill, Donnely and Phantom House Farm, JUST CALL KENNY recorded his second win after taking his debut last August at Monmouth Park by three lengths. He was bred in Virginia by Althea Richards out of the Green Dancer mare Green Jeans. Add a comment Add a comment
