Don't Get Mad has first winner


Saturday, June 12, 2010
Don’t Get Mad, a multiple graded stakes winner of almost $800,000, sired his first winner on June 12 when his 2-year-old colt Dontgetgladgetmad broke his maiden with a huge closing kick in a five furlong  race at Delaware Park.
 
Eight-year-old Don't Get Mad, who was bred in Kentucky, was raced by B. Wayne Hughes. By Stephen Got Even out of the twice Grade 3-placed Jolie's Halo mare Class on Class, Don't Get Mad won the Indiana Derby (G2) at Hoosier Park and both the Grade 3 Northern Dancer S. (where he set a stakes record of 1:42.46 for the 1 1/16-miles) and Derby Trial at Churchill Downs. In just seven days after the Trial, he came back in the Kentucky Derby (G1), where he was fourth beaten about three lengths.
 
Dontgetgladgetmad was making his debut for trainer Juan Vazquez and owner Florence Patitucci. He was in the fifth spot out of the gate, and with a quarter mile to go, he was still some ten lengths off the lead, but kicked into high gear in the stretch, roaring home to stop the clock in 59.91 over a fast main track.
 
The bay colt earned $15,000 for his owners, who purchased him for $15,000 as a yearling at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Summer Sale. He is out of the mare Anna Lisa Beth, who has already produced 10 winners, including four-time stakes winner Synchronized and the stakes-placed duo of Itsawonderfulife and Christmas Affair.
 
Don't Get Mad stands at Spendthrift for a fee of $3,000 S&N.
