First Caleb's Posse colt born at Candy Meadows Farm

Thursday, February 6, 2014

The first colt by multiple Grade 1 winner Caleb's Posse was born Jan. 30 at Candy Meadows Farm in central Kentucky.

Born at Candy Meadows Farm, bred by Don McNeill and raced in partnership by McNeill and Everett Dobson's Cheyenne Stables, Caleb's Posse raced three seasons, with wins in the 2012 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1), King's Bishop S. (G1) and Amsterdam S. (G2).

The colt is out of Cheyenne's mare Numero d'Oro, an unraced daughter of Medaglia d'Oro, whose dam Numero Uno was a three-time stakes winner of nearly $250,000.

"He's a pretty nice colt with a short back, nice depth through his shoulder, and is athletic-looking with some nice scope to his legs," said Candy Meadows manager Brendan Lewis.

Caleb's Posse hit the board in 16 of his 19 starts, 13 of those in stakes races. He earned more than $1.4 million. He is standing the 2014 season at Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky for $5,000 LFS&N.

Numero d'Oro's first foal was a 2013 colt by Munnings. She is scheduled to be bred once again to Caleb's Posse this year.
