CURLIN’S HONOR (c, 3, Curlin–Franscat, by Stormin Fever) battled to a narrow debut victory going six furlongs at Keeneland Oct. 7. The 2-5 favorite chased the pacesetters through fractions of :22.26 and :46.29. Bottled up behind horses at the top of the stretch, he had a seam slammed shut with a furlong to run and was forced to angle farther out before closing with a determined late rally to win by a neck. Drena’s Bullet (Bullet Train {GB}) was second. Curlin’s Honor topped the 2016 Fasig-Tipton July Yearling sale when selling to the partnership of Hartley/DeRenzo Thoroughbreds and Breeze Easy and then went on to sell for a sale-topping $1.5 million at the following year’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale, with Breeze Easy partnering with John Oxley on the youngster. The winner is a half-brother to Powhatan County (Fusaichi Pegasus, GSP, $223,845); and Swinger’s Party (Medaglia d’Oro, SW, $167,065). Curlin’s Honor is the most recent reported foal out of Franscat, who was bred to Violence last spring. Click for the Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $56,220.
