Winbak Farm’s first foal sired by Bolt The Duer, p, 2, 1:51; 3, 1:47.4f ($1,828,995), was born at Winbak Farm of Maryland on Wednesday, February 22.

The filly is the first for her dam, Winbak Speedi, p, 3, 1:54.4s; 1:52.4f ($125,044).

“We are highly anticipating the first crop of Bolt The Duer foals. This filly already shows athleticism and looks the part at her young age. We expect the rest of his first crop to look the part as well,” said Garrett Bell, Winbak Farm general manager.

At three, Bolt The Duer won the Adios Final in 1:47.4, a world record for a five-eighths mile track. He also won the Cleveland Classic, John Simpson Memorial, Max Hempt elimination and Messenger final. He was also the Kentucky Sire Stakes champion in his division at two and three.

At four, Bolt The Duer matched his sophomore world record becoming the first horse to record two five-eighths mile records faster than 1:48. He also equaled the world record with a 1:49 victory in the Joe Gerrity Jr. Memorial. In addition, he won the Dan Patch Invitational, Ben Franklin Pace consolation and Canadian Pacing Derby elimination.

The maternal family includes Glowing Report, p, 2, 1:53.1s; 3, 1:50.1; 1:49.2 ($2,078,249) and Well Said, p, 2, 1:51; 3, 1:47.3 ($2,568,691).

The filly will potentially be eligible to the lucrative New York Sire Stakes program.

“Winbak booked a group of our most promising and proven mares to Bolt The Duer in 2016 and again in 2017. We look forward to showcasing them at 2018 yearling sales,” said Bell.

Bolt The Duer is standing his second season at Winbak Farm of New York. For more information on Bolt The Duer and other Winbak Farm stallions, visit
