News » British Columbia Bred Wins Turk Paradise Stake

December 27, 2011

North American Horse Company’s TAYLORS DEAL, a BC-bred 2yo by BC-sire SECOND IN COMMAND  out of FLEET AMYANNE, by Western Fame, sped to a fast win in the LOST IN THE FOG STAKES yesterday at Turf Paradise. The time for 6 1/2 furlongs was 1:15 1/5.

The youngster won his maiden at Hastings Park for $20K claiming and is owned by a syndicate run by Glenn Todd, who offered the horse for sale as a yearling but ultimately raced him.

Currently trained by Sandi Gann, TAYLORS DEAL is now 2 for 4 in his career.

His dam is from the popular Canadian family of CHEALSEANNA (1976), who raced for A.J.R. May and has produced 10 winners. One of those is Fleet Chelseanna, who is by Afleet.

Interestingly, TAYLORS DEAL has a very strong pedigree that traces back top and bottom to stars raced by Rick Kennedy many years ago at Woodbine.

SECOND IN COMMAND, a son of Silver Deputy, is out of Stormeor (Lypheor-That’s a Kennedy) and was a fast stakes winner on the grass. And with Fleet Chelseanna being by Afleet (Mr Prospector – Polite Lady) – it’s a lot of Kennedy breeding.
