Sing Baby Sing’s runaway victory in the Oct. 21 Remington Park Sprint Championship Stakes at Remington Park closed out an exciting day of black-type contests at the Oklahoma City track.
Owned by Tom Durant and trained by Jack Bruner, the 4-year-old son of Unbridled’s Song registered his sixth victory from 12 career starts in the Sprint Championship.
Sing Baby Sing proved his versatility in also winning the July 21 Bob Johnson Memorial Stakes on the main track at Lone Star.
The colt was bought for $80,000 by Durant at the 2005 Fasig-Tipton Florida March 2-year-old sale from Hoby and Layna Kight, agents.
Durant, whose family has been in the Chevrolet business since 1960, owns six Texas-based automobile dealerships. He has campaigned several other stakes winners alone or in partnership, including Lunar Bounty (gr. II), Wooden Phone (gr. II), Awesome Humor (gr. III), and Most Feared (gr. III).
Bred in Kentucky by ClassicStar, Sing Baby Sing is out of the multiple stakes-winning Rollin On Over mare Roll Over Baby, a $180,000-plus earner.
Roll Over Baby, who won or placed in 13 stakes on the Midwest circuit in the early 1990s, was bought for $1 million by S. David Plummer at the 2002 Keeneland January mixed sale. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent, she was carrying the Sprint Championship winner.
A half-sister to two stakes winners, Roll Over Baby proved to be even more impressive in the breeding shed than she was on the racetrack. She is the dam of three other stakes victors in addition to Sing Baby Sing, including Roll Hennessy Roll, winner of the 2002 Hollywood Prevue Stakes (gr. III) at Hollywood Park.
Three of Roll Over Baby’s foals brought more than $1 million at auction, the most expensive of which was Morocco. The son of Brocco was bought for $2 million by The Thoroughbred Corp. at the 1999 Barretts March 2-year-old sale from Sequel Bloodstock, agent.
Among Roll Over Baby’s most recent foals is Incriminate, a winning 3-year-old full brother to Sing Baby Sing who brought $1.5 million at the 2005 Keeneland September yearling sale. Consigned by ClassicStar through Taylor Made Sales Agency, agent, he was bought by Sheikh Mohammed’s bloodstock agent John Ferguson.
Roll Over Baby’s last reported foal is a yearling Speightstown filly who was bred in Kentucky by Beechglen Farms.
Unbridled’s Song is the sire of 58 stakes winners. Among his 11 2007 added-money winners are Octave (gr. I), Political Force (gr. I), Half Ours (gr. II), and Silent Roar (gr. IIIT). Unbridled’s Song stood the 2007 season for $200,000 at the Taylor family’s Taylor Made Farm near Nicholasville, Ky.—E.M.
