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 THURSDAY, MAY 24

Jon Forbes

RACE 6, ALL TWO-YEAR-OLDS, SIX FURLONGS, TURF, 3:30 P.M.

 

LEADER AVENUE (2yo gray/roan colt, Street Cry—Dyna Da Wyna, by Doc’s Leader) is out of a turf runner who won four stakes, including the Grade 3 Valley View. A half-brother to Dyna Da Wyna, Leroy’s Dynameaux, took the Grade 3 Will Rogers on turf. Dyna Da Dyna has four other foals of racing age, and all three to race have won. One, a dirt runner Sumo, has earned black type, having captured the Pleasant Colony at Saratoga Race Course and finished third in the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis.
