Friday, July 8, 2016 RSS Feeds

Radio Silence, a notable first for conditioner Jim Bolger, was restrained to race last of four runners after the break in this debut. Gaining ground on the home turn, the crowd’s 9-10 pick loomed large inside the two pole and quickened smartly, despite alternating leads, in the closing stages to prevail by two lengths from Pipes of Peace (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). “I tucked him in behind to educate him, he arrived there going well going to the furlong pole and he’ll come on a lot for the run,” explained rider Kevin Manning. Bolger added, “He’s the first War Front I’ve had and he has potential. He’ll either go for the [July 21 G3] Tyros [S.] back here or he might go to The Curragh for the [July 16 G3] Anglesey [S.].” Half to a filly foal by Candy Ride (Arg), he is the third winner out of US champion female sprinter, the inaugural Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint and GI Ballerina S. victress Maryfield, a $1.25-million purchase by Mike Moreno’s Southern Equine Stables out of the 2007 Fasig-Tipton November sale. Radio Silence hails from the female family of MGSW Sir Pele (Bold Forbes) and MGISP Swoon (Secretariat). A $150,000 FTKJUL yearling acquisition, Radio Silence breezed a quarter-mile in:20 3/5 and was knocked down for $675,000 at this year’s OBSMAR sale. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $14,337.
