UPDATE 4/23/20: Hurryupandcomeback checked in foal to Force the Pass
UPDATE 2/11/20: Hurryupandcomeback gave birth to a healthy colt, who we have nicknamed Hancock.
Hurryupandcomeback, by the excellent value sire Mizzen Mast, stems from the direct female family of Cash Run and Forestry through her second dam, Shared Interest. By Pleasant Colony, Shared Interest herself was brilliant on the racetrack as well. She scored 10 wins in 23 career starts from ages 3 to 5, winning the G1 Ruffian, G2 First Flight, and Burlington County Stakes to secure over $667k in purses. She additionally finished 2nd or 3rd in 7 other graded stakes, including the G1 Beldame, G1 Shuvee, G1 John A. Morris, G1 Top Flight, G2 Monmouth Oaks, G2 First Flight, and the G3 Breeders' Cup Handicap at Arlington Park.
Shared Interest is the dam of both Cash Run and the great sire Forestry, himself by the breed-shaping sire, Storm Cat. Forestry sold for $1.5 million as a yearling at the Keeneland July sale before beginning his training with Hall of Famer Bob Baffert. As a 3yo, he won 7 of his 11 starts, including the G1 King's Bishop at Saratoga and the G2 Dwyer at Belmont. He set a new stakes record in the King's Bishop and equaled the record set by Holy Bull in the Dwyer. His remarkable 3yo campaign was good for $591k in earnings. He entered stud at Taylor Made for an introductory fee of $50k, but by 2007 he was standing for $125k. He went on to sire Preakness winner Shackleford, as well as fellow G1 winners Discreet Cat, Diplomat Lady, and Forest Danger.
Cash Run, by Seeking the Gold, is best known for winning the G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies in 1999. She sold for $1.2 million as a yearling at the Keeneland July sale and went into training for Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas. She broke her maiden by a jaw dropping 15 3/4 lengths on debut at Belmont Park, under a hand ride from Jerry Bailey. Cash Run went on to win the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies by open lengths. As a 3yo, she conquered the G2 Davona Dale (by 7 lengths!) and the G2 Bonnie Miss. In 17 career starts, she scored 5 wins and won over $924k on the track. She went on to sell for $7.1 million as a broodmare prospect at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale in 2003. As a broodmare, Cash Run became the dam of stakes winner Great War Eagle (by Storm Cat), Step in Time (Horse of the Year, Champion Miler, and Champion Older Horse in Saudi Arabia), and Move Your Vision (Champion Imported 2yo Colt, Champion Imported Older Horse in Slovakia). She is also the granddam of Best Macho (winner of $1.1 million in purses) through her daughter Encore, as well as Donna Veloce (2nd in the 2019 G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies) through her daughter Coin Broker.
Shared Interest is also the granddam of stakes winners Golden Spikes (G2 Carry Back winner of $390k) and Al Muhtasib (Buddy Diliberto Memorial winner of $251k) through her winning daughter, A.P. Interest. She traces to Hurryupandcomeback through her daughter, Shared Hope, who is by the great Gone West.
While Shared Hope was unraced, she has produced 3 winners from 4 starters, one of which is multiple stakes winner White Flag. By War Front, White Flag was a $725k RNA as a weanling and has earned over $461k on the track in 16 starts to date. He has hit the board in 11 of those 16 starts, almost all of which have been on the turf. Thus far, he has won the Allied Forces Stakes and the Aqueduct Turf Sprint Championship Stakes. He has also placed in the G1 Highlander, G2 Nearctic, and the G3 Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint. There is an excellent chance that he will continue to earn more blacktype as he races.
Hurryupandcomeback is currently in foal to undefeated G1 winner, Army Mule, on a February cover. The timing of this cover means that we can expect a January Maryland-bred foal and hope to breed her back to Force the Pass in February or March. Army Mule himself is a strong, well-made horse that is perfectly balanced. The match of Hurryupandcomeback with Army Mule is as near perfect a case of a like-to-like match up as you could ask for.
