Forbes' Firsters

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 Forbes’ Firsters will help fans find the stars of tomorrow as they head postward for the first time.

 

FORBES’ FIRSTERS FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23

Jon Forbes

RACE 1, ALL TWO-YEAR-OLDS, SIX FURLONGS, TURF, 12:50 P.M.

 

PICEANCE (dark bay/brown colt, Speightstown—Inny River, by Seattle Slew) is a half-brother to Montgomery Arch, who won the Group 2 Richmond and was third in the Group 1 Dewhurst in England as a juvenile, and Welcome Inn, who took a restricted stakes on dirt for 2-year-old fillies at Laurel Park. Another half-sibling, Inny Minnie, has placed in the Grade 3 Delta Princess and Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra so far in her career. Seven of Inny River’s nine foals to race have won, three on turf. Inny River, who was winless in four starts, is a half-sister to Lotus Pool, a two-time Grade 3 winner on turf, Golden Larch, who twice finished third in the Grade 1 Woodward, and Grade 3-placed runners Honour a Bull and Golden Glen.
