Just about two weeks into the new year, Seelster Farms had its first foal hit the ground for 2021.

The Big Jim colt was born on Jan. 14 from the Bettors Delight mare Rough N Ready, an earner of just under $50,000 who last set foot on a racetrack in 2019. The broodmare is a full sister to Ideal Nuggets (p, 2, 1:50.4, BT1:50.2 ($399,074)), Strong Opinion (p, 2, 1:52.3f, 3, 1:51.1f, BT1:49.1 ($364,674)) and Rough Odds (p, 3, 1:51.3f, 1:50.1f, BT1:49.4 ($220,031)). Her dam Rough Sketch is a full sister to the Big Jim filly Good Will Hanover (p, 2, 1:52.3s, 3, 1:50s ($368,314)), who won a division of Ontario Sires Stakes Gold as a two-year-old.
