Keros, a half-brother to Breeders' Cup Classic winner Blame, broke his maiden by a runaway 10 lengths on Saturday night at Turfway Park. The 4-year-old son of First Samurai, ridden by Malcolm Franklin and trained by Tommy Drury, covered six furlongs over the polytrack in 1:10.43.
Out of the Seeking the Gold mare Liable, Keros was making his first start since being gelded and his third start overall. Campaigned by Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider, like Blame, Keros has earned $15,342.
Liable, now 23, earned over $200,000 on the track. Besides Blame (Arch), some of her other notable foals include: Tend (Dynaformer), a multiple stakes-winning earner of $584,907, and Curvature (Arch), a six-time winner who earned $191,209.
Another full sibling to Blame, Might (2008) won two of four starts to earn $66,646, and has produced the G2-placed 3-year-old filly Vigor (War Front) and 5-year-old horse Seize (War Front), an earner of $173,467. Liable's only other female offspring was Apt, a 2001 unplaced daughter of A.P. Indy. That mare has produced millionaire Carve (First Samurai) and G1-placed Apropos (First Samurai), as well as Group 2-placed Sloane Avenue (Candy Ride).
