MY DESIGNATED DRIVER si 86
First Down Dash x Lady MP (Zevi TB)
My Designated Driver's foals have proven to be very useful in every category of competition. 63% of his starters earning their race ROM is a statistic few top stallions in the nation can boast, not considering the caliber of mares which have been bred to "Desi" as compared to other leading sires of race horses.
Another key feature of My Designated Driver's foals is THEY STAY SOUND! Too many times our trainer tell's us "You have a runner... but....he is a little sore". It does no good to have a fast horse if he can't stay sound to prove it. So many of the fashionable bloodlines of today's race horse don't pass on correct conformation, which leads to unsoundness on the track and in the arena.
My Designated Driver colts have good old fashion "try", willing to do their best each time asked.
MY DESIGNATED DRIVER (1993) sold as a yearling at the Ruidoso Super Select Yearling Sale for $80,000. One of the leading riders at Ruidoso, Kenny Hart, had given "Desi" first call in the Triple
Crown races believing him to be the fastest two year old on the mountain that year. He posted great morning works and all his connections felt confident of winning the Kansas Futurity going in. In
the trials on a muddy track, Desi broke on top but was hit in the rear end and spun sideways which led to a chip in an ankle. He led the race for 250 yards and then began to back out, similar to what he
did for the Rainbow and All American trials, when the chip would begin to bother him. After the All American trials, surgery to remove the chip was performed but he was never the same racehorse as he had exhibited early his two year-old year.
