Intrepid Forest

Birth Year:
Dororthy "Beth" Worton 

Why We Bought This Horse

  • This 5 Maryland-bred YO mare was purchased privately by Wasabi Ventures Stables with the intention that she would become a broodmare in 2019.  Unfortunately, she had a reproductive issue that did not allow her to keep her foal.   So she is now being offered as a racing prospect.
  • She is already back in training at Pimlico with Beth Worton.
  • Intrepid Forest has run 3 times in 2019 and won once.   She has earned just under $100,000 in her career.
  • We expect her to race through the remainder of 2019 in the Mid-Atlantic and return as a broodmare prospect in our Broodmare Program in 2020.  This offering is ONLY for her 2019 racing career.

Tidbits from the Pedigree

This writeup is from partner Housatonic Bloodstock:

After breaking her maiden at 2-years-old, Intrepid Forest would go on to take six more sprint races from 4-1/2 furlongs to 6-1/2 furlongs through the beginning of her 5-year-old season, putting together a career record of (20) 7-1-1, good for earnings of $94,886.

Intrepid Forest is a daughter of Forestry, winner of the King’s Bishop-G1 for Bob Baffert and the sire of Preakness-G1 winner Shackleford and Grade 1 winner Discreet Cat, and the broodmare sire of Grade 1 winners like Eclipse Champion Nyquist, Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint-G1 winner Bobby’s Kitten, Turbulent Descent, Rushing Fall, etc.

She is out of Hongkong Tour (by Broken Vow), who won her first four starts in maiden special and allowance company impressively, before finishing midfield in her stakes debut and not running thereafter.  Hongkong Tour is the dam of the stakes-placed winner Touring Hong Kong, plus the 2019 winner Stormin Hongkong from all her foals to race.  Intrepid Forest’s second dam was a stakes winner of 13 races and $327,262, namely Hongkong Charley, by Secretariat’s record-setting grandson, the successful Florida stallion Tour d’Or.  All three of Hongkong Charley’s foals to race were winners, as were six of the seven foals to race out of Hongkong Charley’s dam Diff E Q.

Further back, Intrepid Forest traces in tail-female to the multiple champion Black Maria, a winner of the Kentucky Oaks, plus the Met Mile and Whitney Stakes over males, among her 18 career victories.  Black Maria produced just one foal, the filly Black Queen, who was the second dam of Preakness winner Polynesian (sire of Native Dancer).
