How to Order

 


Our Emblem is an outstanding tribute to the legendary breeding program of the late Ogden Phipps. The Phipps philosophpy of breeding the best to the best has been responsible for such leading sires as Bold Ruler, Seeking the Gold and Private Account. With current progeny earnings of over $4.6 million, Our Emblem has sired five 2002 stakes winners, including Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Haskell Invitational Handicap winner, War Emblem. Our Emblem stands as the latest stallion to foster the legacy of Phipps-bred sires.
Our Emblem’s pedigree is impeccable. He is the son of Sire of Sires Mr. Prospector, sire of 177 Stakes Winners, 15 Champions, 44 Grade 1 Winners and 106 Graded Stakes Winners. Mr. Prospector’s sons include Fappiano, Seeking the Gold, Gone West, Forty Niner, Woodman and Gulch. His progeny earnings on the racetrack are currently approaching an astounding $100 Million.

The maternal side of Our Emblem’s heritage is no less impressive. He is out of Champion Personal Ensign, the undefeated Breeders’ Cup Winner and Broodmare of the Year. She herself is out of Broodmare of the Year, Grecian Banner. Personal Ensign is the dam of 3 Grade 1 Winners including multiple Grade 1 Winner, My Flag, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1). Were it not for a nose defeat in the Grade 1 Carter Handicap, Our Emblem would have been the fourth Grade 1 Winner for Personal Ensign.

On the racetrack Our Emblem showed himself to be a premium example of speed, class and soundness. He ran 6 furlongs over the Belmont dirt in 1:08.4 winning by 7 lengths. He bested his own time of 1:21.4 over 7 furlongs at Gulfstream Park by running 1:21.2 in the Grade 1 Carter Handicap. Our Emblem also placed in the Grade 1 Vosburgh Stakes and the Grade 1 Metropolitan as well as the Tom Fool (G2), the Forego (G2), the Commonwealth Breeders’ Cup Stakes (G2), The Westchester Handicap (G3) and The Gulfstream Park Breeders’ Cup Sprint Championship Handicap (G3). He retired sound after 27 starts from 2 to 5. Our Emblem’s performance as a leading sire in 2002 has been nothing short of astonishing. From limited opportunities, with only 35 foals in his first crop, he has sired five 2002 stakes winners, three of which are graded. His stakes winners include Arkansas Derby (G2) winner, Private Emblem, Railbird Stakes (G3) winner, September Secret and Eclipse Champion hopeful, War Emblem (G1). After taking the Kentucky Derby gate-to-wire, War Emblem fought hard, stalking the pace, to ultimately prevail in the Preakness Stakes. War Emblem reaffirmed his position at the top of the three year-old class by winning the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational Handicap, in dominating fashion, becoming the only horse in history to take both the Kentucky Derby and the Haskell. The Haskell was the third million-dollar Grade 1 victory for Our Emblem’s son, War Emblem.

The future lies wide open for Our Emblem to carry-on the legacy he was bred to maintain. He will stand his first season at Taylor Made in 2003.
