Bump Bailey's eye-catching maiden special weight debut victory Feb. 14 at Santa Anita Park came at the expense of some high profile colts left in his wake, as the 3-year-old son of Fed Biz zipped over the sloppy going to win by nearly four lengths while being eased up in the final sixteenth [WATCH RACE
Despite the sloppy going and coasting home late, Bump Bailey stopped the timer in 1:02.65, just a second off the track record, and earned a stellar 91 Beyer Speed Figure.
“He’s a nice colt that we’ve taken our time developing,” Rockingham Ranch’s Brian Trump said. “(Trainer) Peter Miller has done a tremendous job gearing this horse up for his debut and we are excited for what the future will bring him.”

Bump Bailey, bred in Kentucky by Lynn Jones, is the 18th winner for Fed Biz, who has also accounted for promising 3-year-olds Zenden, second in the Swale S. (G3), and Family Biz, who placed in the $150,000 Jerome S.
Bump Bailey's unraced dam One Hot Senorita–a half-sister to the talented sprinter Nicole H, GSW & GISP, $811,144-is also responsible for a Paynter colt of 2017 and a Fed Biz filly of 2018. She was bred to Fed Biz once again for the 2019 season.
