G1 winner Line of David sires first foals

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Grade 1 winner Line of David sired his first reported foals when a colt and filly were both born recently in Central Kentucky.

The bay colt was bred by Eamon Cleary and gave birth on Jan. 19th at his Clearsky Farms in Lexington. He is out of the top racemare Sister Girl Blues, who most notably was runner-up to Azeri in the Grade 1 Vanity Handicap. Sister Girl Blues is also a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Mint Lane.

Six days later, a filly was born at Hurricane Hills Farm on Jan. 25th. Bred by Hurricane Hills owner Doug Branham, the chestnut filly is out of the mare Value Vetted, a half-sister to stakes winner Busy Prospect.

As a three-year-old on the racetrack, Line of David capped off a three-race win streak with his biggest score in the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) in wire-to-wire fashion. He defeated next-out Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver and Grade 1 winner Dublin, and his final time of 1:49.37 was faster than recent Arkansas Derby winners Curlin (1:50.09), Smarty Jones (1:49.41) and Lawyer Ron (1:51.38).

A son of Lion Heart, Line of David retired to Spendthrift Farm at the end of 2010 after amassing career earnings of $662,000. Out of the Capote mare Emma's Dilemma, he hails from the direct family of Mr. Prospector.

Line of David stood his first year in 2011 as part of Spendthrift's Share The Upside program, and he heads into 2012 as part of Spendthrift's Breed Secure program. Line of David stands for a fee of $7,500 stands and nurses.
