First starter is a winner for Kodiak Kowboy
Monday, April 22, 2013

Freshman sire Kodiak Kowboy, a three-time G1 winner and Eclipse Champion, sired his first winner from his first starter when his 2-year-old filly Bear Facts captured her debut in a Trial race at Turf Paradise on April 19.

Bear Facts broke sharply in the 4 1/2-furlong heat and turned back challenges in the stretch to finish on top, stopping the timer in 52.55 over a fast local main track. The chestnut filly hails from the Boston Harbor mare I’vegothemusicinme, and was bred in Kentucky by C. Kidder and N. Cole. She is trained by Molly Pearson for owner Bar Diamond Ranch, Morgan, Robert W., Avena, Daniel.

Champion Kodiak Kowboy won or placed in 18 of 23 races and earned $1,663,363 on the track. At 2, he won three consecutive stakes after breaking his maiden, including the Saratoga Special S. (G2), Bashford Manor S. (G2) and Victoria S. Kodiak Kowboy also placed in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) and Futurity Stakes (G2), and was voted Canada’s champion 2-year-old male. At 3, he was a leading sophomore sprinter with wins in the Amsterdam S. (G2) and Sport Page H. (G3) in New York.

Kodiak Kowboy enjoyed his best year as a 4-year-old, winning three Grade 1s – the Cigar Mile (G1), Carter H. (G1) and Vosburgh S. (G1) – en route to being named as Eclipse Champion Sprinter before retiring to stud duty.

Standing at WinStar Farm, Kodiak Kowboy’s 2013 fee is $6,500 stands and nurses.
