First Foals are Colts for National Flag

WinBlaze LLC stallion and Grade III winner National Flag (Speightstown–Date to Remember, by Bernardini) sired his first reported foals when a colt out of the Tale of the Cat mare Princess Adelyn was born at Smokin C Farm in Ohio and a colt produced from the Kitten’s Joy mare Elated was born at Blazing Meadows Farm. He stands as the property of WinBlaze LLC, an alliance between WinStar Farm and Tim Hamm’s Blazing Meadows Farm.

“We are excited to see the first foals by National Flag hit the ground, and his first foals share the same looks as their sire, who was a $600,000 yearling,” said Sean Tugel, WinStar’s director of bloodstock services and assistant racing manger. “There is not a hotter sire line in America than Speightstown. National Flag had a bright future ahead of him on the racetrack before his premature retirement and he has a true stallion’s pedigree. He has the speed, the looks, and the family to be a substantial stallion. Best of all he has had the early support, breeding more mares than any other stallion in Ohio. The future looks bright.”
