Already with two black-type winners to his credit this year, STEPHEN GOT EVEN is currently the leading sire on the Thoroughbred Times General Sire List. Leading his runners is the talented four-year-old colt Cosmo Phantom. The runner-up in last year’s Japan Dirt Derby recently accounted for the G3 Nikkan Sports Sho Nakayama Kimpai S., pushing his career earnings past the $1.67 million mark. Cosmo Phantom was bred by John Hadley Thoroughbreds.
STEPHEN GOT EVEN is also the sire of the exciting upstart Stephanie Got Even. The filly concluded 2010 with four straight wins in maiden special and allowance company, then made a successful seasonal and stakes debut in the American Beauty S. at Oaklawn Jan. 23. The good-moving four-year-old powered to the front in the American Beauty in the dying strides, defeating a field that included the classy GSW Decelerator. Stephanie Got Even was bred by Mineola Farm II LLC.
STEPHEN GOT EVEN is the sire of the 2010 standout First Dude, Donald Dizney’s homebred colt who placed in five Grade 1s on the year, including the G1 Preakness S. and G1 Belmont S., and missed by just a neck in the G2 Pennsylvania Derby. First Dude is the expected favorite for this Saturday’s Sunshine Millions Classic at Gulfstream and is being pointed toward the G1 Donn H. in Hallendale. Also expected for the Sunshine Millions is STEPHEN GOT EVEN’s North Rodeo, who goes in the Filly & Mare Sprint. STEPHEN GOT EVEN will stand the 2011 season for a fee of $7,500.
