 One of six New Mexico-bred 2-year-olds entered -- all of whom were making their first career starts -- B4 Farms LLC’s Bye
Bye Matty P led at every call en route to a 2 1/4-length victory in the May 23, $55,872 C.O. “Ken” Kendrick Memorial Stakes (R) at SunRay Park.
Bye Bye Matty P covered the 4 1/2 furlongs in :53.21 while taking down the $34,920 winner’s share of the purse. Tracy Hebert rode the bay son of Attila’s Storm for trainer Todd Fincher.
Bye Bye Matty P was sent to post as the 3-5 favorite and returned a $3.20 win mutuel.
The gelding was bred by R.D. Hubbard, and he became the 175th winner from 231 starters sired by Attila’s Storm, a 19-year-
old son of the Storm Cat stallion Forest Wildcat. Racing between 2004 and 2007, Attila’s Storm won five of 18 starts and earned $534,983, and his two stakes victories included the 2007 Toboggan Handicap (G3) at Aqueduct.
Attila’s Storm has sired 22 black-type stakes winners and the earners of more
than $13.5 million from 11 crops, includ- ing multiple stakes winners Waltzing Attila and Hush’s Storm. The stallion is owned by Jimmy J. Vasquez and Scott Branson, and he stands at Double L Farm at Bosque,
New Mexico.
Bye Bye Matty P is also one of six win- ners from eight starters foaled by Kizka, a winning homebred daughter of the Northern Dancer stallion Danzig.
The gelding is a half-brother to Plea Agreement, a Successful Appeal colt who won the 2014 Budweiser Special Stakes at The Downs at Albuquerque.
Bye Bye Matty P’s second dam, the Shy Groom mare Miss Demure (IRE), won the ‘88 Update Lowther Stakes (G2) at York, England. Miss Demure produced nine winners from 15 starters, including Royal Shyness (GB), a Grade 1-placed half-sister to Kizka and winner of the 1999 Great Lady M. Handicap at Hollywood Park.
Wheres Brayden, Roll On Camron. Le Grand Johann, Truezer, and Annie Get Ur Guns completed the order of finish.
A homebred bay son of the Artie Schiller stal- lion Artful Run, Wheres Brayden banked $11,640 for his owner R. Dwain Yarbar. The gelding is one of two starters produced by Little Mandate,
a winning Full Mandate mare and a half-sister to five-time stakes winner Sr. Quisqueyano.
Roll On Camron races for Fred Alexander, who also bred the bay Roll Hennessy Roll filly. One of three starters foaled by the winning Roman Ruler mare Nineteenninetyfour, Roll On Camron earned the $5,820 third-place share of the purse.
