(Edited press release)
The first foal of grade I winner and track record setter Forest Danger, was foaled Jan. 13 at Needham-Betz Thoroughbreds near Lexington. The bay filly, bred by Needham-Betz Thoroughbreds, Dr. Chuck Kidder, Peter Lamantia, and Brian Graves, is out of the stakes-placed mare Gimme Some Love, who was a $270,000 Keeneland November sale purchase last year.
Forest Danger, a $900,000 2-year-old graduate, captured the 2005 Carter Handicap (gr. I) at Aqueduct, before which he ran 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:14.44, breaking the track record over the new Gulfstream surface set by Medalist nine days earlier.
Forest Danger was a top 3-year-old in a season cut short by injury. He made four starts and won three, including the Bay Shore Stakes (gr. III). He stands at the Taylor family's Taylor Made Stallions near Nicholasville, Ky., for a fee of $20,000 live foal.
