Explosive First Stakes Winner for Fort Larned

Blonde Bomber scored an impressive victory in the $75,000 Our Dear Peggy Stakes at Gulfstream...

Blonde Bomber scored an impressive victory in the $75,000 Our Dear Peggy Stakes at Gulfstream Park, becoming the first stakes winner for Breeders' Cup Classic champion Fort Larned.

Watch the Our Dear Peggy Stakes

"Nice seeing Blonde Bomber live up to the promise and talent-level many of us thought she had this summer," commented Gulfstream Park on-track host Jason Blewitt. "Nice Fort Larned filly for Arindel Farm."

The attractive gray placed in three of her first four outings, all at sprint distances. She broke through in her fifth start with a sparkling 4 1/2-length Maiden Special victory going six furlongs at Gulfstream on September 2.

Making her stakes debut in the one-mile Our Dear Peggy, Blonde Bomber broke well from post five and attended the early pace through a quarter mile in :24.96 and a half-mile in :48.30. Jockey Emisael Jaramillo gave his filly her cue midway around the far turn and she willingly assumed the lead. The pair coasted down the lane from there, greeting the wire with a 7 1/4-length advantage. 

Blonde Bomber is trained by South Florida veteran Stanley Gold and races in the colors of her breeder, Arindel Farm. She's out of the mare Girl Can Rock, a daughter of the former Adena Springs champion sire El Prado.

Updated October 24, 2017 

Fort Larned has a pedigree free of Northern Dancer and Seattle Slew and should click well with mares from a wide variety of broodmare lines.

Danzig, Storm Cat, Dixieland Band, Sadler’s Wells and Nijinsky II hold particular appeal among Northern Dancer-line targets for Fort Larned. 

The early Fort Larned SW Blonde Bomber is out of a mare by the Sadler’s Wells son El Prado. This cross worked for E Dubai as well: G2W My Gi Gi out of a mare by Sadler’s Wells and G3W Willy Dubai out of a Sadler’s Wells granddaughter. The Sadler’s Wells sire line is going strong in North America primarily through the El Prado sons Medaglia d’Oro, Kitten’s Joy and Artie Schiller. Medaglia d’Oro’s daughters and granddaughters are especially interesting as he is out of a Damascus-line mare. E Dubai has sired five stakes winners, including G2W High Heels, out of mares carrying the Damascus influence. 

Fort Larned's sire, E Dubai, has sired stakes winners out of mares by four different Danzig-line stallions: Dayjur, Langfuhr, Pine Bluff and Redoute’s Choice. Like Dayjur, War Front and Exchange Rate are bred on the Danzig/Mr. Prospector cross, making their daughters and granddaughters good candidates. Redoute’s Choice is by Danzig’s top son Danehill, whose North American sons include North Light

E Dubai and his sons have sired five stakes winners out of Storm Cat-influenced mares, three of them group/graded winners. The Storm Cat sons Bernstein and Pure Prize are represented in the sample. Fort Larned should also go well with mares showing the more ubiquitous strains like Giant’s Causeway, Harlan/Harlan's Holiday, Hennessy/Johannesburg/Scat Daddy, Forestry/Shackleford, Tale of the Cat, Forest Wildcat and Stormy Atlantic

E Dubai has sired a Grade 2 winner out of a Dixieland Band mare and a Grade 3 winner out of a granddaughter of Dixieland Band. This makes mares by Dixieland Band-line stallions Dixie Union, Union Rags and Gone Astray strong contenders for Fort Larned.

High Heels also shows Nijinsky II in her pedigree as do two additional graded winners by E Dubai. 

Mr. Prospector over A. P. Indy has produced in excess of 100 stakes winners. Many of A. P. Indy’s good sire sons are out of Mr. Prospector mares (Malibu Moon, Pulpit, Mineshaft, Congrats, etc.) and E Dubai and sons have sired six stakes winners out of mares that reinforce the Mr. Prospector influence. Two of those are out of mares that show Fappiano, including SW Fordubai out of a mare by Unbridled. This put mares from the Tapit and Bernardini offshoots in play for Fort Larned as both are bred A. P. Indy over Fappiano.
  
Fordubai is among the 40 stakes winners bred on the Mr. Prospector/Unbridled cross. Nineteen of those are out of daughters of Unbridled’s Song and another trio are out of daughters of Grindstone making daughters of his son, Birdstone, interesting for Fort Larned. Another Unbridled son, Broken Vow (out of a Nijinsky II mare), is the broodmare sire of two more stakes winners in this sample.
