First Foal A Colt for Omaha Beach

Omaha Beach | Spendthrift Farm/Autry Graham

Spendthrift Farm's three-time Grade I winner Omaha Beach (War Front–Charming, by Seeking the Gold) sired his first reported foal Jan. 27 when a colt was born at Burleson Farms in Midway, KY.

“We are thrilled with our first Omaha Beach foal and excited to have three more coming here on the farm,” said Lyn Burleson. “This colt has all the right angles and a great frame to go with it. Very athletic.”

Bred by Nice Guys Stable, the gray colt is the first foal out of the young Scat Daddy mare Two Sugars, a half-sister to graded stakes winner Calculator (In Summation) and stakes winner Arms Runner (Overdriven).

Omaha Beach retired to Spendthrift after a decorated 3-year-old campaign in 2019. He jumped onto the Triple Crown trail with three consecutive victories including the GII Rebel S. over 2-year-old champion Game Winner (Candy Ride {Arg}) and GI Arkansas Derby over Improbable (City Zip) and eventual GI Kentucky Derby winner Country House (Lookin At Lucky). Later that year Omaha Beach added top-level scores in the GI Santa Anita Sprint Championship S. and GI Malibu S. An earner of $1,651,800, Omaha Beach covered 215 mares from his first book in 2020 and will stand his second season in 2021 for a fee of $35,000 S&N.
