Congrats, one of the leading 2015 sires of winners, has the promising 2-year-old filly Forever Darling stepping up to the big stage in Friday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at Keeneland.
Forever Darling drew post 5 in the field of ten, with Rafael Bejarano set to ride.
Bejarano has been aboard the Richard Baltas trainee in both starts, including her maiden special weight win on Sept. 26 at Santa Anita.
Baltas owns Forever Darling in partnership with Hebert Bloodstock and J K Racing LLC. She was bred in Kentucky by Debbie Oxley and is out of the two-time stakes winner Darling My Darling, who is a half-sister to Zenno Rob Roy, Japanese Horse of the Year and one of the sport’s all-time leading money earners.
With 129 winners to date, Congrats’ progeny have earned in excess of $5.6 million this year. He will stand the 2016 season at WinStar Farm for $20,000 live foal.
