Big Apple Babies

Big Apple Babies, formerly Forbes' Firsters is a series that takes a glance at the pedigrees and sales histories of select 2-year-olds who are making their debuts in maiden special weight races at Aqueduct Racetrack, Belmont Park, or Saratoga Race Course. Many of history’s best horses have commenced their careers in New York, and Big Apple Babies will help fans find the stars of tomorrow as they head postward for the first time.

 

FORBES’ FIRSTERS FOR SUNDAY, DECEMBER 9

Jon Forbes

RACE 1, TWO-YEAR-OLD FILLIES, SEVEN FURLONGS, 12:30 P.M.

BARAGAH (bay filly, Awesome Again—Golden Apples, by Pivotal) is out of a turf runner who posted Grade 1 wins in the Del Mar Oaks, Beverly D., and Yellow Ribbon. Golden Applies, a half-sister to turf stakes winners La Piaf and Alexander Three D, has produced two winners from as many foals to race, including Habaya, who took the Grade 3 Miesque on the grass as a juvenile.
