Benny the Bull's First Foal Is a Colt

Eclipse Award winner's first foal is a Florida-bred colt.

The first foal by 2008 champion sprinter Benny the Bull is a colt born Jan. 26 at Ben-D South near Ocala, Fla. Out of the multiple stakes-placed mare Color Me Special, the colt is owned by his breeder Greg James, who raced Benny the Bull.

“This is a nice colt,” said Ben-D manager Andy Cant. “He’s definitely the type of foal that will make everyone’s short list.”
