Not surprisingly, trainer Wesley Ward began the Keeneland spring meet April 8 with a 2-year-old winner. But this one is a filly he bred.
Florida-based stallion Iqbaal saw his first winner July 9, when juvenile filly Happy as a Queen won the fifth race at Gulfstream Park.
Trainer Wesley Ward purchased graded stakes-placed Iqbaal for $70,000 from Shadwell Farm to top the Nov. 18 session of the Keeneland breeding stock sale.
