Graydar

2009 Stallion - Unbridled's Song / Sweetest Smile, by Dehere

2013 Donn Handicap (GI), GII NO Handicap and GII Kelso Handicap Winner!

Brilliant 3-length winner of the $500,000 Donn H. (G1) in his stakes debut, setting fractions of 46 4/5, 1:10 2/5, 1:35 1/5 before powering home in 1:48 1/5 to defeat 4 Grade 1 winners.

Earned a 109 Beyer winning the Donn in just his fourth lifetime start.

Gate-to-wire winner of the $400,000 Kelso Invitational H. (G2) in 1:34 flat while carrying top weight.

Versatile winner of the $400,000 New Orleans H. (G2), rallying from off the pace to defeat top older horses.

Ran a mile in 1:33.72 at Gulfstream -- just 1/100th off Commentator's track record Broke his maiden first time out by 8 1/2 lengths with a 100 Beyer.

Undefeated in 2013 while racing exclusively in Graded stakes.

Showed rarely-seen brilliance by recording triple-digit Beyer Speed Figures in every start of his career except one.

Arguably the closest match to his sire Unbridled's Song by style, brilliance, class, presence, and physical stature.

Bred by William Farish out of a three-time stakes producer by leading broodmare sire Dehere.

First four dams are all multiple SWs or multiple SPRs.

Near flawless record, with an average winning margin of over 4 lengths, and earnings of $841,560.

Free of the Seattle Slew/A.P. Indy line, perhaps the best cross for Unbridled's Song.

News for Graydar

Grade I winner Graydar (Unbridled’s Song--Sweetest Smile, by Dehere) has been retired to Taylor Made Stallions for the 2014 season, where he will command a fee of $15,000, stands and nurses.
ELMONT, N.Y. - There has been a change of plans for Graydar and there will most likely be a change in the way handicappers perceive his chances in the Breeders’ Cup. Graydar will run in the $1 million Dirt Mile on Friday at Santa Anita and not the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic on Saturday as originally planned, trainer Todd Pletcher said Saturday. Graydar, who has won 5 of 6 races, including the Grade 1 Donn in February, has only had one race since winning the Fair Grounds Handicap on March 30. Graydar, who had surgery to remove an ankle chip after that race, won the Grade 2 Kelso Invitational - a Win and You’re In race for the Dirt Mile - at Belmont on Sept. 28.

After a front-running victory in Saturday's $400,000 Kelso H. (G2), Twin Creeks Racing Stable's Graydar is headed to Santa Anita Park for either the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1) or Breeders' Cup Classic (G1)...
ELMONT, N.Y. - Graydar returned from a six-month layoff with a solid effort, winning Saturday’s Grade 2, $400,000 Kelso Invitational at Belmont Park. Now, his connections must decide whether it was good enough to take a shot at the Breeders’ Cup Classic next month at Santa Anita.
The Kelso victory guaranteed Graydar in the $1,000,000 BC Dirt Mile.
Graydar will take on veteran runners Jackson Bend and Hymn Book and the South American import Brujo de Olleros in the $400,000 Kelso Invitational Handicap (gr. II) at Belmont Park Sept. 28 hoping to score entry to the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (gr. I).
Hot in the winter, forgotten this summer, Graydar may soon be the horse we are all talking about again in five more days.
Taylor Made Stallions purchased an interest in Graydar, impressive winner of the Donn Handicap (gr. I) and New Orleans Handicap (gr. II) this year.
Graydar looks spectacular and is raring to go!
Graydar is Saratoga Bound on Saturday where he will rejoin the Pletcher crew and gear up for a fall campaign
All reports are good and he is well on his way to a fall campaign. The ultimate goal is to have one or two prep races under his belt before the GI Breeders Cup Classic on November 2nd .
Graydar changed up his running style, coming from just off the pace to repel the gritty challenge of Mark Valeski while earning his fourth win.
A power-packed field of eight headed by upset Donn Handicap (gr. I) winner Graydar will assemble for the $400,000 New Orleans Handicap (gr. II) March 30 at Fair Grounds Race
Graydar worked a solid 5/8 in 1.00:48 on Sunday and will shipped to NOLA on Wednesday for the GII New Orleans Handicap
Graydar, winner of the GI Donn Handicap, will have a rematch with runner-up Bourbon Courage in the GII New Orleans Handicap on March 30th
With a powerful victory in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap on Saturday at Gulfsteam Park, the once-beaten Graydar shoved himself into a spot of prominence among the older horses on the East Coast. The big gray’s success also made him the 100th stakes winner for his famous sire, Unbridled’s Song (by Unbridled).
He ran an enormous race running away from his foes by 3 lengths!
Graydar will try to capture his first stakes win in the Donn Handicap (GI) on Saturday, February 9th
