Two Japanese Winners for Global Sire Point of Entry

01.21.2018 -

When Dynaformer's five-time Grade 1 winner Point of Entry retired to stud he brought with him the credentials to be the next important Global Sire. His latest first crop winners, both in Japan on January 21, are the latest examples of his growing international prowess.

Best My Way, a Point of Entry colt out of the Medgalia d'Oro mare Hug It Out, scored in his fourth outing going 9 furlongs on the dirt at Kyoto. The colt first signaled his quality at last year's OBS March Two-Year-Old in Training sale where he sparked a bidding war. When the dust settled the handsome bay was purchased for $675,000, giving his sire $500,000-plus juveniles on both sides of the Atlantic. A month earlier, a Point of Entry colt sold for 390,000gns ($515,000 USD) at the Tattersalls Breeze Up auction in England.

Holiday Mode showed Point of Entry's versatility as a sire by scoring his Maiden victory on the grass course at Nakayama that same afternoon. Out of the Harlan's Holiday mare Ski Holiday, the nearly turned three-year-old won at third asking and showed an impressive turn of foot to capture the 10 furlong contest.

Point of Entry now has winners in five countries on dirt, turf and all-weather surfaces ranging in distance from 5 1/2 to 10 furlongs. Among his other winners is the sensational unbeaten Graded winner Analyze It and the Canadian Stakes winner Glamanation.
