The bay filly is out three-time stakes winner Pacific Heat, whose lone foal to race is a winner. Pacific Heat’s dam Hotlantic is also a multiple stakes winner and the dam of yet another two-time stakes winner in Long Hot Summer.
Omaha Beach’s first worker to go :09 4/5 was hip No. 161, a colt consigned by Eddie Woods, agent. The gray colt is his dam Two Sugars’ first foal. Two Sugars is a half-sister to Sham S. (G3) winner and multiple Grade 1-placed Calculator.
