Beautyinthepulpit to Buckridge in Kinderhook

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

(Edited press release)

Multiple stakes-placed winner Beautyinthepulpit has been retired to stud at Amy and Jody Boll’s Buckridge Farm in Kinderhook.

Beautyinthepulpit, a son of leading sire of sires Pulpit, whose sons include Tapit, Lucky Pulpit and Sky Mesa, won 8 races and $410,627, including a runner-up finish in Aqueduct’s Alex M. Robb Stakes, and third-place finishes in Laurel’s open Richard W. Small Stakes, plus the restricted Empire Classic at Belmont and Kings Point at Aqueduct.

A winner at first asking by a widening 8 1/2 lengths in New York-bred maiden special weight company going 6 furlongs at Saratoga, Beautyinthepulpit’s wins all came on dirt at distances up to 1 1/8 miles.

Beautyinthepulpit springs from an outstanding female family cultivated by accomplished New York breeder Albert Fried, Jr. His dam, Grade 2 multiple stakes winning juvenile Stolen Beauty, also produced stakes winner Moonlightandbeauty (herself the dam of Grade 3 winner Giant Moon and leading NY-bred sprinter Moonlight Song), and stakes-placed winner Stolen Thunder. Among the 57 black-type horses under Beautyinthepulpit’s first three dams are Grade 1 Preakness Stakes winner Exaggerator, Canadian champion Eternal Search, and graded stakes-winning sires Niigon, Finality, and Jiggs Coz.

Beautyinthepulpit will stand as the property of Buckridge for a private fee, with the stud fee waived for mares who: have black type anywhere under the first two dams; who earned more than $50,000 on the track; who have produced a winner of $50,000 or more; and for breeders who send more than one mare per season.

“Beautyinthepulpit represents a unique opportunity for budget-conscious New York breeders,” said Buckridge owner Amy Boll. “Not only is he by Pulpit, one of the most sought-after sires of sires on the planet, he’s also out of a New York graded-stakes winning Deputy Minister mare, and he’s got the gorgeous shoulder you’d expect from that lineage. He won his debut at Saratoga in explosive fashion, maintained his form for six seasons of racing, and excelled at the sire-making one mile distance. We’re going to support him with our own mares — and we invite breeders to visit him in the coming months.”

The deal to send Beautyinthepulpit to Buckridge was brokered by New Jersey-based bloodstock agent Michael Slezak.

A bay filly born Jan. 13 at Waldorf Farm in New York is the first reported foal by graded-placed, stakes winner Japan, who stands at Waldorf.

“We’ve been told she is a nice, big, correct filly with good bone and out of the three foals they’ve had so far, she is the best,” said Peter Moore, farm manager for Barry Schwartz’ Stonewall Farm. Schwartz raced Japan and still owns 24% of 5-year-old son of Medgalia d’Oro—Maya, by Capote.

The filly is out of the Gold Token stakes winner Lovely Daniella, who Schwartz bred and sold. She raced for Carmen Seguin and later Shining Starlite Racing, but was always trained by Mike Ferraro, who now owns the mare in partnership with Blue Star Stable. Lovely Daniella is the only stakes winner produced by Chasing Lightning (by Belong to Me), but is a full sister to stakes-placed, black-type producer Christina’s Gold and a half sister to stakes-placed gelding Chasing the Heat (by Latent Heat).

Emory Hamilton bred Japan in Kentucky. A full brother to grade 2 winner Al Khali, Japan was sold for $300,000 to Schwartz through Gainesway’s consignment at the 2013 Keeneland September yearling sale.

Japan broke his maiden with a seven-length victory in his third start and won the WinStar Farm Easy Goer Stakes, defeating a field that included Stanford and Nonna’s Boy. He went on to finish third in the Jim Dandy Stakes (G2) behind grade 1 winners Texas Red   and Frosted. He got injured training up to the Travers Stakes (G1) and had to be retired. He now stands for $3,500 at Waldorf, near the town of North Chatham.
