How to Order
Cat's Grade I winning son Forestry is the epitome of a champion
sire prospect. Bred in the purple, he is out of Broodmare
of the Year Shared Interest, a Grade 1-winning daughter of
Pleasant Colony-herself out of a daughter of Dr. Fager. Shared
Interest is from the direct family of Leading Sires Mr. Prospector
and Seattle Slew. She has produced two Grade 1 winners and
two Keeneland July Sale Toppers.
Bred by R.S. Evans, Forestry was raised at Taylor Made Farm.
Offered for sale as a yearling at the 1997 Keeneland July
Sale, Forestry was the Keeneland July Sale Topper at $1.5
million. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, the standout
son of Storm Cat was purchased by Aaron and Marie Jones.
Forestry's half-sister Cash Run, by Seeking the Gold, herself
a Taylor Made Sales Agency graduate, was the filly Sale
Topper at Keeneland July. She was purchased by trainer D.
Wayne Lukas and raced in the colors of the Saanan family's
Padua Stables. Cash Run won the $1,000,000 Breeders' Cup
Juvenile Fillies (G1). She retired from racing with earnings
A Grade 1-winning son of Sire of Sires Storm Cat, Forestry
was the model of consistency as a racehorse, amassing a
record of 7 wins, 1 second and 2 thirds from 11 lifetime
starts. In the Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes at the historic
Saratoga racecourse, Forestry ran an internal 6 furlong
fraction of 1:07 3/5ths-two-fifths of a second faster than
the 28 year old track record of 1:08 flat. His final time
of 1:21 flat for seven furlongs in the King's Bishop (G1)
established a new stakes record. His victory in that race
came at the expense of seven stakes winners including Grade
1 winners Yes Its True and Vicar.
Although one of the leading sprinters of his generation,
Forestry was equally as proficient going a route of ground.
In the 1 1/16th mile Grade 2 Dwyer stakes at Belmont, he
equalled the stakes record set by Horse of the Year Holy
This outstanding Grade 1 winner by Storm Cat stands poised
to develop into a major commercial sire. His stellar pedigree
suggests precocity, brilliance and classic ability.
At the 2001 Keeneland November Breeding Stock sale, Forestry
was the #1 first-crop sire of weanlings with an average
price of $257,000.
In 2002, Forestry was the #1 first crop sire of yearlings
with yearlings selling for as much as $950,000. His Keeneland
July yearlings averaged $443,333.
