Press Release

A three-quarter brother to Grade 1 multimillionaire Well Armed was born at WinStar Farm on April 14th. The bay colt is from the first crop of multiple Grade 1 winner Colonel John – Tiznow's top performer at stud.

The colt is out of Well Dressed, a stakes-winning Notebook mare who has already produced graded stakes winners Witty, by Distorted Humor, and the aforementioned Well Armed, who recently retired as Tiznow's leading earner with $5,171,009 in career earnings. A two-time Grade 1 winner, Well Armed is best known for his record-breaking 14-length triumph in the 2009 Dubai World Cup (G1).

“He looks like Well Armed when he was a foal and has everything you would want to see in a new baby,” said Bill Casner, who owns Well Dressed. “He weighted 136 lbs and is very correct at this stage. He nursed within an hour and took several laps in the paddock the first day. I was fortunate enough to be at the farm to witness the foaling – the experience always amazes me. Well Dressed is the perfect mama.”

Well Dressed is booked back to Tiznow, who stands the 2011 season for $75,000 stands and nurses. Colonel John stands his second season in 2011 for a fee of $15,000 stands and nurses. Both stallions have been booked full.
