Constitution Colt Stays Perfect, Earns 'Rising Star' Tag


We the People | Coady Photography

We the People (Constitution) proved his good-looking debut was not a flash in the pan with another dominant score in an allowance at Oaklawn Saturday, earning the 'TDN Rising Star' distinction.

The $230,000 FTFMAR purchase donned cap and gown with a powerful 5 3/4-length score in his one-mile career bow at this oval Feb. 12, earning an 83 Beyer Speed Figure. Hammered down to 2-5 favoritism to repeat in this first try against winners, We the People broke well and set his sights on the leader, hustling up to press the pace through a :23.88 opening quarter. Pulling at Florent Geroux, who kept the colt under a snug hold, the bay continued to keep the leader honest through a :48.70 half-mile. Sticking his nose in front on the backstretch, We the People cruised clear in the lane under a hand ride from Geroux to win as he pleased by five lengths. The Skipper Too (Brethren) filled the place spot.

We the People was bred on the same Constitution/Tiznow cross as MGISW Tiz the Law. His dam Letchworth (Tiznow) is out of GISW Harmony Lodge (Hennessy), who also produced SW & MGSP Armistice Day (Declaration of War) and GSW Stratford Hill (A.P. Indy). This is also the family of GISWs Pinehurst (Twirling Candy) and Magnum Moon (Malibu Moon); MGSW & GISP sire Graeme Hall (Dehere); and GSW Win McCool (Giant's Causeway). Picked up by Henley Farms for $40,000 at the 2019 KEEJAN sale with We the People in utero, Letchworth produced an Always Dreaming colt in 2020 and an Audible colt in 2021. Both are May foals. She was bred back to More Than Ready.
