On February 15, Winbak Farm welcomed the first Winbak-bred colt sired by Heston Blue Chip, p, 2, 1:50.4f; 3, 1:48f ($1,781,881).
Heston Blue Chip, the richest son of American Ideal, was a standout stakes performer. He was voted USHWA’s top three-year-old pacing colt of 2012.
At two, he won the John Simpson Memorial, Matron final at Dover Downs, seven New York Sire Stakes legs and final and the Tompkins-Geers Stakes. At three, he won the Breeders Crown elimination and final, Cane Pace elimination, Empire Breeder Classic elimination and final, Historic, Matron final, Meadowlands Pace elimination, four New York Sire Stakes legs and Progress Pace elimination and final.
The colt is the third foal from his dam, Elegant Girl, p, 3, 1:54f ($88,175). Her oldest foal is now two. His maternal family includes Woodrow Wilson Winner Even Odds, p, 2, 1:53.4 ($976,683).
The colt will potentially be eligible to the lucrative New York stakes program.
