The first reported foal by multiple graded winner Om (Munnings–Rare Cat, by Tabasco Cat) was born Jan. 18 at Harris Farms in Coalinga, California. Bred by Al and Saundra Kirkwood, the chestnut filly is the third foal from the Unusual Heat allowance winner All the Heat, who is a full sister to Inflamed, dam of Grade I winner Mo Forza.
Om, who broke his maiden in his second start at two defeating subsequent Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, continued to excel at three through his 7-year-old seasons, winning four graded races including the GII Del Mar Derby, GII Twilight Derby and GII Mathis Brothers Mile, in addition to on-the-board finishes in 13 other graded stakes, including two editions of the GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint.
Om, who also set a new course record at Churchill Downs for 5 1/2 furlongs, retired with earnings of $1,355,082. Property of the Sareen Family Trust and Harris Farms, the 9-year-old will stand his second season at Harris Farms for $6,000 payable when the foal stands and nurses.
