Making her career bow, Bells of Victory led at every call and drew off to victory in the first race at Marquis Downs in Saskatoon Aug. 1 to become the first winner for Canadian-based freshman sire Brandon's Oboe.
Brandon's Oboe, a son of Lemon Drop Kid
, is out of the stakes-placed Broad Brush mare Broad Expectations, a full sister to 1994 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Concern
and grade III winner Tennis Lady
. He stood in 2014 for a private fee at Alger's Stallion Station in Saskatchewan.
Bells of Victory, owned and trained by Al Hanson, won by 1 3/4 lengths and covered the four-furlong maiden special weight race in :48.53. Oral Bennett guided in the bay filly, who was bred in Saskatchewan by Gordon Alger. She is out of the winning Langfuhr
mare Langfuhr's Lady, who has produced a pair stakes winners in half siblings Langfuhr Max
and Sadlers Peppy
Brandon's Oboe finished on the board in 18 of 32 career starts, posting four wins that included the 2009 City Centre Bingo Early Bird Handicap at Marquis Downs.
There are four 2-year-olds in his first crop.
