Out of winning mare Melody Lady the colt is a full brother to dual winning juvenile filly Buy Sell Hold, who also placed at Grade Three level. A lovely grey boy, he is related to plenty of Graded Stakes winners, perhaps most notably Grade One victor Lady Tak.
He could be well on his way to his own big race success after securing victory on his debut at Ellis Park, taking the race on pure raw ability. He put in an even better effort to finish second at Churchill Downs next time up, recording an impressive speed figure in the process. He continued his excellent progression with an impressive victory back at the Kentucky track next time out making him a colt to watch in the future.
