Baseball talks about its 30-30 club, meaning players who can jack 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season. Robert Meyerhoff’s homebred Include also has bragging rights to the number 30. The 3-year-old colt, who won the Vincent A. Moscarelli Memorial Stakes as the 13-10 favorite, has captured all four of his races this year by a total of 301/4 lengths.
Include, who raced twice last year, started his win streak with a 91/2-length score against maidens on June 25. He then won an allowance event by three lengths and an optional claimer (in which he was not eligible to be claimed) by 81/4 lengths. His triumph in the Vincent A. Moscarelli Memorial came by 91/2 lengths nine days later.
A Maryland real estate developer, Meyerhoff earned a 1999 Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Award as the state’s outstanding owner-breeder. Meyerhoff raced Include’s sire, Broad Brush, and bought the colt’s dam, Illeria, for $350,000 at the 1994 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Illeria was in foal to Affirmed and was consigned by the Greathouse family’s Glencrest Farm, as agent.
A son of Ack Ack, Broad Brush won a dozen stakes and earned $2,656,793 as a Meyerhoff homebred. At this year’s Keeneland July yearling sale, a Broad Broad colt out of champion and Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Winning Colors brought the fourth-highest price, $2.5 million, during the two-day sale. Meyerhoff is represented by additional 2000 stakes winner Basic Concern, whose sire, Concern, is Broad Brush’s leading earner. A Meyerhoff homebred, Concern earned $3,079,350 and scored his big win in the 1994 Breeders’ Cup Classic (gr. I) as a 3-year-old.
Illeria is kept at Meyerhoff’s Fitzhugh Farm near Cockeysville, Md., where she is in foal to Coronado’s Quest. Include’s older stakes-winning full sister, Magic Broad, also is a member of Meyerhoff’s broodmare band. She is carrying her first foal, by Forestry.
Broad Brush has sired 63 stakes winners, including additional 2000 added-money winners Brushed Halory (gr. III), Broad Appeal (Jpn-III), Brushedbythebest, Beauty Brush, Cedar Knolls, Pickupspeed, Shashobegon, Tookin Down, and Velvet Morning. Syndicated Broad Brush stands at Graham J. Beck’s Gainesway Farm near Lexington. His 2000 fee was $100,000.—D.S.
