Hold Me Back Sires First Foal

Newborn filly's second dam is a full sister to Canadian Triple Crown winner Wando.

Multiple graded stakes winner Hold Me Back sired his first reported foal Jan. 23 when a chestnut filly was born at Kenny Troutt’s WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky.

The filly, bred by WinStar, is out of the A.P. Indy mare All Sevens, whose dam is a stakes-winning full sister to Canadian Triple Crown winner Wando.
