Bluegrass Cat colt takes G3 Highlander S.
Monday, July 08, 2013
Go Blue Or Go Home wired his rivals in Sunday's $200,000 Highlander S. (G3) at Woodbine to give the 3-year-old son of Bluegrass Cat his first graded stakes victory and fifth win in seven lifetime starts.

Originally carded for the grass at six furlongs, the race was moved to the Polytrack because of heavy rains at the Toronto oval. Go Blue Or Go Home set all the fractions getting the quarter in 22.08 and the half in 44.88, before being pressed in early stretch by stablemate and 2008 Canadian Horse of the Year Fatal Bullet. The eventual winner comfortably handled that challenge and widened to win by five and one-quarter lengths in 1:10.46.

Owned by Jim and Susan Hill, Go Blue or Go Home opened his 2013 season with an impressive victory in the Boyes Memorial at Presque Isle Downs on June 10. Unraced as a 2-year-old, Go Blue or Go Home has bankrolled $273,084 after Sunday's $113,460 payday.

The Hills bought Go Blue or Go Home for $90,000 as a weanling out of the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale. Bred by the partnership of Morgan's Ford Farm and WinStar Farm, Go Blue or Go Home is out of the stakes-placed Irish mare Go Baby Go.

With five stakes winners, 10 stakes horses, and over $3 million in progeny earnings, Bluegrass Cat is New York's leading sire of 2013 and in the top 30 on the North American General Sire list.
