    • Same sire as West Point’s GSW Cavalry Charge

    • Greg Foley Trains WPT KY Derby Starter O Besos

    • Value colt handpicked by Foley

With more than 4,100 horses in a catalog that spans 12 days, the Keeneland September yearling sale inevitably provides an opportunity to latch onto value and quality.

Trainer Greg Foley has been on the prowl searching for that combination and came upon an Honor Code colt that he presented to West Point as a worthy addition from Sunday’s session.

Honor Code was the last top-class representative of Horse of the Year and leading sire A.P. Indy, the long-time anchor of the stallion roster at Lane’s End Farm. Honor Code has been good to West Point, siring Cavalry Charge, a yearling acquisition who developed into a Graded stakes winner and is looking toward a 6-year-old season in 2023.

And on the same day the new yearling colt came into the fold, Honor Code’s 2-year-old son Ohana Honor showed his budding potential in New York for West Point and partners, charging through the stretch and missing by a nose in his second career start.

The new colt is a half-brother to Finick the Fierce, who hit the board in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club as a 2-year-old and in the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby at 3.

“We took a pause for a deep breath the past several days, and then another deep inhale that drew in a beautiful Honor Code colt for our team and Foley Racing,” said Jeff Lifson. “Great physical and a great bargain!”

Jeff works closely with Greg on the group of West Point runners in the Foley barn, including O Besos, who took a so-so pedigree and tip-top physical all the way to the Kentucky Derby in 2021, finishing fifth across the wire and fourth in the official record with the disqualification of Medina Spirit.

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2024.
