Small Percentage Has Come Available
West Point had tried but not had any luck securing a son or daughter of young sire Omaha Beach before Greg Foley could land this dark bay colt at the Fasig-Tipton October Yearling Sale. The colt did well all winter in Ocala and is now with Foley at Churchill Downs. Named Redeposit, he breezed three furlongs on May 26 and is on track to debut this summer. A small piece of the colt recently became available.
“He’s good looking, good moving, and has a good attitude,” said Foley. “That’s the recipe you want with a two-year-old.”
Omaha Beach would have been the favorite in the 2019 Kentucky Derby favorite, but he had to scratch due to a respiratory issue. A son of leading sire War Front, Omaha Beach was an exceptional talent at both sprint and route distances, winning the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes going seven furlongs at Santa Anita and the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby at nine furlongs. The new colt is from Omaha Beach’s first crop.
Greg Foley trains a beloved member of the West Point stable — O Besos. The son of Orb rose through the Triple Crown trail with a Grade 2 placing in the Louisiana Derby and ran well in the Kentucky Derby, finishing fifth across the wire. With Greg at the helm, O Besos hit the board in a Grade 3 in the fall before running credibly in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).
Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2024.
