3 G1s in 1 Day for Bluewater-Connected Horses
Thursday, August 28, 2014
The team at Bluewater sales was beaming with pride over the weekend when offspring of two of their sales graduates won two of the summer’s biggest Grade 1 events.

The excitement started when aptly-named The Big Beast fought to the finish in the $500,000 King’s Bishop Stakes-G1 at Saratoga, winning against Champion Dreaming of Anna’s colt Fast Anna and Grade 2 winner Coup de Grace. The Big Beast’s dam, V V S Flawless, sold for $130,000 at the Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale in 2003.

Just a few hours later at the east coast track V. E. Day earned a hard-fought victory against stable mate Wicked Strong in the $1,000,000 Travers Stakes-G1. His dam, California Sunset, was consigned by Bluewater Sales at the 2008 Keeneland January Horses of All Ages Sale, selling to Ben Walden, agent for Kelley Farms Racing, for $220,000.

It was just a few hours later and a few thousand miles across the coast to Del Mar that Bluewater had yet another reason to celebrate when the 2013 Juvenile Champion Shared Belief remained undefeated in his 2-3/4 length victory in the $1,000,000 Pacific Classic-G1. The win further bolstered the growing celebrity status of his half sister Multitassker, by Bertrando, who will be consigned this November by Bluewater at Fasig-Tipton and is in-foal to Candy Ride, who is also the sire of Shared Belief.
