A three-quarter brother to Grade 1 multimillionaire Well Armed was born at
WinStar Farm on April 14th. The bay colt is from the first crop of multiple
Grade 1 winner Colonel John – Tiznow's top performer at stud.
The colt is out of Well Dressed, a stakes-winning Notebook mare who has
already produced graded stakes winners Witty, by Distorted Humor, and the
aforementioned Well Armed, who recently retired as Tiznow's leading earner
with $5,171,009 in career earnings. A two-time Grade 1 winner, Well Armed is
best known for his record-breaking 14-length triumph in the 2009 Dubai World
“He looks like Well Armed when he was a foal and has everything you would
want to see in a new baby,” said Bill Casner, who owns Well Dressed. “He
weighted 136 lbs and is very correct at this stage. He nursed within an hour
and took several laps in the paddock the first day. I was fortunate enough
to be at the farm to witness the foaling – the experience always amazes me.
Well Dressed is the perfect mama.”
