Last of the Unbridleds hit track


LAS VEGAS - Winner of the 1990 Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cup Classic, Unbridled was a champion at age 3, and went on to a very successful career as a stallion. He had a profound impact on the breed as a rare influence of stamina on dirt. His untimely death at age 14 in 2001, along with the passing of 24-year-old Pleasant Colony in 2002, left a serious void in the stallion ranks for breeders who wished to breed for stamina and not speed.

But there is still hope for American breeders should they choose wisely and bring back stamina, an ingredient that has been sadly missing for the last 20 years. Established sources of stamina include A.P. Indy, Cryptoclearance, Dynaformer, Kingmambo, and Thunder Gulch. Young sires who may be added to this group soon include Aptitude, Awesome Again, Empire Maker, Lemon Drop Kid, Monarchos, Point Given, Touch Gold, Victory Gallop, and Volponi.

Last year, Unbridled's 3-year-old crop included Belmont Stakes winner Empire Maker, and his current crop of 3-year-olds are led by Eddington, an expected Preakness starter, and Mustanfar, whose next goal is the Belmont.

Unbridled's last crop of 55 2-year-olds (two died) race this year, and like his other nine crops, there is an abundance of quality to be found. Below is a complete list of Unbridled's 10th and final foal crop, listed by name, color and sex, dam, broodmare sire and comment:
