Oratory Sires Initial Winner

Grade II winner Oratory's first winner scores at Colonial.

Oratory, a grade II winner, sired his first winner when his son Work for a Cure won June 5 at Colonial Downs. Owned by John E. Salzman Sr., the colt won the 5 1/2-furlong race by five lengths in 1:04.34.

Bred in Maryland by Dark Hollow Farm, Work for a Cure is a half-brother to Dubai champion and group I winner Our New Recruit and two stakes-placed runners. He is out of the stakes-placed Lord Avie mare Delta Danielle.

Oratory (Pulpit--Arrested Dreams, by Dehere) stands for $5,000 at the Pons’ family’s Country Life Farm near Bel Air, Md.
