- Backwood Bay
- Breeders' Cup
If you want a winner, a great place to start is with a colt by a leading sire. This stunning colt is the spitting image of his Grade 1-winning sire VIOLENCE, who last year was the #1 Third-Crop Sire by Lifetime Earnings, Black-Type Winners, and Graded Stakes Horses. In 2019 VIOLENCE had 18 stakes winners and 36 stakes horses, including Grade 1-placed/Grade 3 winner TALK VEUVE TO ME (who also sold for $1.3 million), Group 1 Stakes Winner DANDY DEL BARRIO, Group 1-placed Stakes Winner REINA LEONA, etc. etc., and he’s shown no signs of slowing down in 2020 as he the sire of 3 more Grade 1 winners this season including VOLATILE (Alfred G. Vanderbilt H.-G1), NO PAROLE (Woody Stephens Stakes-G1) and DR. SCHIVEL (Del Mar Futurity-G1). VIOLENCE was also last year’s leading Third-Crop Sire by Lifetime Yearling Average with sales of $850k, $725k, $575k, $500k, $475k, $450k, $425k, $400k, etc.
This big colt is out of the young stakes-placed GIROLAMO mare Backwood Bay, who is a half-sister to black-type runner Permanent Vacation as well as OIL EMPRESS, who is the dam of no less than three stakes horses including a Graded Stakes performer at Belmont. Backwood Bay’s first foal, a New York-bred filly by FREUD, is currently breezing at Belmont Park in preparation for her first start, plus she has an exciting EXAGGERATOR yearling colt coming for her. This could get exciting!
