PYC First Prize Fany Purchased, Retired
Stakes-placed mare retires to the Bob Moore Farms broodmare band.
April 22, 2014
Multiple stakes-placed PYC First Prize Fany was recently purchased by Bob Moore Farms and has been retired from the track and bred to champion sire FDD Dynasty, a champion son of First Down Dash standing at their Norman, Oklahoma facility.
A daughter of leading sire PYC Paint Your Wagon, PYC First Prize Fany won four of nine career starts, earning $92,303. She finished second in the South Florida Derby in her last start, February 23, and was also third in the Governor's Stakes at Indiana Downs last fall.
The bay filly is out of the Mr Jess Perry mare First Prize Fancy, who produced Saturday's $861,000 Remington Park Futurity (RG3) winner and full sibling Im A Fancy PYC (3 wins in 3 starts, $340,178).
First Prize Fancy is a full sister to three Grade 1 winners and one Grade 1-placed runner, including Heritage Place Futurity (G1) winner First Carolina, dam of last year's Remington Park Futurity winner Coronado Cartel ($309,428). Additional full siblings include Remington Park Futurity (G1) winners First Prize Leesa ($488,270), dam of 2014 Decketta Stakes (G3) winner First Prize Shaunda ($125,095, First Prize Robin ($295,147) and Texas Classic Futurity (G1) runner-up First Prize Perry ($243,946).
"This particular family of mares are some of the most sought after in our industry and we were thrilled to have been given the opportunity to purchase First Prize Fany," Bob Moore Farm Manager Phillip Stewart said Tuesday. "She has retired from racing and arrived a little over a month ago joining the Bob Moore Farms broodmare band."
The second dam is former broodmare of the year First Prize Dash, a sister to all-time leading sire and world champion First Down Dash.
Dam of 28 ROM, six stakes winners and four stakes-placed winners, First Prize Dash also produced Heritage Place Futurity (G1) winner Fast First Prize ($244,929), Blue Ribbon Futurity (G2) winner and 2013's leading sire of money earners Heza Fast Dash, Gentilly Dash Stakes winner First Prize Doc ($73,700), stakes-placed First Prize Paris ($92,910), stakes-placed First Prize Timber ($56,018), and stakes-placed First Prize Stone ($32,633), etc.
First Prize Dash is also the granddam of 2013 Rainbow Futurity (G1) winner Ms First Prize Rose ($506,404), 2013 LQHBA Breeders' Futurity (RG1) runner-up First Prize Jet ($251,758) and 2013 Speedhorse Futurity (RG3) winner Spit Like Jagger ($105,045), etc.
"With the win by her full brother in Saturday's Remington Park Futurity, our anticipation and excitement about her 2015 FDD Dynasty foal is even greater," Stewart adds. "We are looking forward to a successful future for First Prize Fany as part of Bob Moore Farms breeding program."
