Don't Fly Mad turned his debut into a one-horse show with a 12 3/4-length gallop in his unveiling at Mountaineer Park on Dec. 17. The bay son of first-crop sire Don't Get Mad was never headed at any point in the 5 1/2-furlong maiden dash, increasing his lead at every point of call.
Don't Fly Mad is a Kentucky bred who is also owned and trained by his breeder Albert Skinner. He is the fourth winner out of his dam T. City Flyer.
Eight-year-old Don't Get Mad, who was also raced by B. Wayne Hughes, was undefeated at two, won the Indiana Derby (G2), Northern Dancer S. (G3), and Derby Trial at three. He was also fourth in the 2005 Kentucky Derby (G1) just one week after his Trial victory.
Don't Get Mad will stand the 2011 season at Spendthrift for $3,000 LFS&N.
