How to Order


Storm Cat's Grade I winning son Forestry is the epitome of a champion sire prospect. Bred in the purple, he is out of Broodmare of the Year Shared Interest, a Grade 1-winning daughter of Pleasant Colony-herself out of a daughter of Dr. Fager. Shared Interest is from the direct family of Leading Sires Mr. Prospector and Seattle Slew. She has produced two Grade 1 winners and two Keeneland July Sale Toppers.
Bred by R.S. Evans, Forestry was raised at Taylor Made Farm. Offered for sale as a yearling at the 1997 Keeneland July Sale, Forestry was the Keeneland July Sale Topper at $1.5 million. Consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, the standout son of Storm Cat was purchased by Aaron and Marie Jones.

Forestry's half-sister Cash Run, by Seeking the Gold, herself a Taylor Made Sales Agency graduate, was the filly Sale Topper at Keeneland July. She was purchased by trainer D. Wayne Lukas and raced in the colors of the Saanan family's Padua Stables. Cash Run won the $1,000,000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1). She retired from racing with earnings of $924,201.

A Grade 1-winning son of Sire of Sires Storm Cat, Forestry was the model of consistency as a racehorse, amassing a record of 7 wins, 1 second and 2 thirds from 11 lifetime starts. In the Grade 1 King's Bishop Stakes at the historic Saratoga racecourse, Forestry ran an internal 6 furlong fraction of 1:07 3/5ths-two-fifths of a second faster than the 28 year old track record of 1:08 flat. His final time of 1:21 flat for seven furlongs in the King's Bishop (G1) established a new stakes record. His victory in that race came at the expense of seven stakes winners including Grade 1 winners Yes Its True and Vicar.

Although one of the leading sprinters of his generation, Forestry was equally as proficient going a route of ground. In the 1 1/16th mile Grade 2 Dwyer stakes at Belmont, he equalled the stakes record set by Horse of the Year Holy Bull.

This outstanding Grade 1 winner by Storm Cat stands poised to develop into a major commercial sire. His stellar pedigree suggests precocity, brilliance and classic ability.

At the 2001 Keeneland November Breeding Stock sale, Forestry was the #1 first-crop sire of weanlings with an average price of $257,000.

In 2002, Forestry was the #1 first crop sire of yearlings with yearlings selling for as much as $950,000. His Keeneland July yearlings averaged $443,333.
