First Foal Arrives For Breeders’ Cup Mile Winner Karakontie

Gainesway's three-time Grade/Group 1 winner Karakontie sired his first reported foal Jan. 19, a filly bred by Jim and Pam Robinson's Brandywine Farm and foaled at their Paris, Ky., property.

The filly was produced from the winning Saint Ballado mare Royal Parade, who is from the immediate family of 1996 Preakness Stakes (G1) winner Louis Quatorze.

Bred and raced by the Niarchos family, Karakontie (Bernstein—Sun Is Up, by Sunday Silence) hails from the deep female family of successful sire Kingmambo and international champion Miesque. Karakontie won three of four starts at 2, including the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère (G1) at seven furlongs. At 3 he captured the prestigious French Two Thousand Guineas (G1) and defeated older horses in the Breeders' Cup Mile (G1), stopping the clock in 1:32 4/5 for a 110 Beyer Speed Figure.

Karakontie bred 113 mares during his initial season at Gainesway.

He will stand for a $15,000 fee in 2017.

Semper Fortis To Represent Reddam-O’Neill In Pegasus World Cup

Reddam Racing, which had planned on running G1 winner Ralis in the Pegasus World Cup, will instead enter stakes-placed Semper Fortis in the $12 million race.

In an interview Sunday with the BloodHorse, trainer Doug O'Neill said that the decision to make the change came after both colts worked in company Saturday at Santa Anita. O'Neill said that Semper Fortis, a 4-year-old son of Distorted Humor, was training better than Ralis was on the dirt, so they decided to switch the two.

Ralis captured the G1 Hopeful Stakes in 2015, but has not found his way to the winner's circle in 11 starts since. The son of Square Eddie has been second in three turf stakes, including the G2 Del Mar Derby. According to O'Neill, Ralis will instead run in the California Cup Turf Classic at Santa Anita on Saturday.

“They worked in company yesterday and Semper, on dirt, just seemed like he's doing a little better,” O'Neill told the BloodHorse. “The fact that we have a spot for Ralis here in the Cal Cup helped with the decision, but both are doing great.”

O'Neill added, “We know we're up against it against those favorites, but (owner J. Paul Reddam) is a true sportsman.”
