Consigned by Harris Training Center, the filly is out of the accomplished mare Five Star Daydream and is a half-sister to the speedy Grade 2-winning filly, Gas Station Sushi.

Hit It a Bomb remains the only Breeders’ Cup winner by leading sire War Front. He captured the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) from the 14-hole at Keeneland to cap an undefeated 2-year-old campaign for Aidan O’Brien.

Hit It a Bomb is standing the 2020 breeding season for a fee of $5,000 S&N and is participating in the farm’s “Safe Bet” program that insures breeders by guaranteeing at least one graded stakes-winning juvenile in 2020 from Hit It a Bomb’s first crop or no stud fee will be owed for resulting foals in 2021.

The annual two-day OBS March sale begins Tuesday, March 17th and will conclude on Wednesday, March 18th.
