Grade 1 Winner Fighter On Fire to Stand in New Mexico
RSS Feeds Friday, November 26, 2010

Rancho El Alacran Inc.’s Fighter On Fire, a Grade 1-winning son of all-time leading sire First Down Dash, will stand the 2011 season at MJ Farms at Veguita, New Mexico.

The 5-year-old stallion’s fee will be $2,500.

Racing exclusively at Los Alamitos from 2007-09, Fighter On Fire earned $682,788 from 27 starts, and his 11 wins included last year’s $350,000 Bank of America Challenge Championship (G1) and $81,900 AQHA California Challenge Championship (G2), the 2008 Jens L. List Jr. Memorial California Breeders’ Stakes (R), and the ’07 California Breeders’ Freshman Stakes (R). The stallion also ran second in the 2007 Golden State Million Futurity (G1), and he placed third, one length behind world champion Freaky, in last year’s $750,000 Champion of Champions (G1).

Fighter On Fire is also a full brother to First Down Touchdown, a gelding by First Down Dash whose four stakes victories between 1992-98 included the 1993 El Primero del Ano Derby (G1) at Los Alamitos. The stallion’s full sister, Our Honey Bunny, ran second in Girl Secrets’ ’98 La Primera del Ano Derby (G2) at Los Alamitos.

Fighter On Fire’s third dam, Leannie (TB), was a California-bred daughter of the Bold Venture (TB) stallion Depth Charge (TB) whose eight starters included Pampered Lady, a filly by Duplicate Copy who ran second in the 1976 Golden State Derby (G1) at Bay Meadows.

Fighter On Fire was also the AQHA California region high-point sophomore colt in 2008.
