The first foal from Bolt The Duer is from the broodmare Winbak Speedi.

Winbak Farm’s first foal sired by Bolt The Duer, p, 2, 1:51; 3, 1:47 4/5 ($1,828,995), was born at Winbak Farm of Maryland on February 22nd.
 
The filly is the first for her dam, Winbak Speedi, p, 3, 1:54 4/5; 1:52 4/5 ($125,044).
 
“We are highly anticipating the first crop of Bolt The Duer foals. This filly already shows athleticism and looks the part at her young age. We expect the rest of his first crop to look the part as well,” said Garrett Bell, Winbak Farm General Manager.
 
At 3, Bolt The Duer won the Adios Final in 1:47 4/5, a World Record for a five-eighths mile. He also won the Cleveland Classic, John Simpson Memorial, Max Hempt elimination and Messenger Final. He was also the Kentucky Sire Stakes Champion in his division at 2 and 3.
 
At 4, Bolt The Duer matched his Sophomore World Record becoming the first horse to record two five-eighths mile records faster than 1:48. He also equaled the World Record with a 1:49 victory in the Joe Gerrity Jr Memorial. In addition, he won the Dan Patch Invitational, Ben Franklin Pace consolation and Canadian Pacing Derby elimination.
 
The maternal family includes Glowing Report, p, 2, 1:53 1/5; 3, 1:50 1/5; 1:49 2/5 ($2,078,249) and Well Said, p, 2, 1:51; 3, 1:47 3/5 ($2,568,691).
 
The filly will potentially be eligible to the lucrative New York Sire Stakes program.
