Freshman Texas sire Sing Baby Sing had his first winner on Sunday when his son The Lone Roo scored a 4 ½-length victory at Lone Star Park. Trained by Jack Bruner for breeder/owner Tom Durant, the Texas-bred colt ran five furlongs in :59.03 and earned $12,000 for the win. The Lone Roo is out the Texas-bred Uncle Abbie mare Hollye Lynne, who compiled a record of 49-13-11-5 with earnings of $222,820 and two stakes wins in Texas.
Sing Baby Sing, a son of Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) winner Unbridled’s Song out of the stakes-winning Rollin On Over mare Roll Over Baby, won eight of 22 starts and earned nearly $500,000 while running for Durant. A full or half brother to four other stakes performers, Sing Baby Sing had great success in the region and around the country. His victories included the Remington Park Sprint Championship in Oklahoma City, the Bob Johnson Memorial Stakes at Lone Star Park and the Phoenix Stakes (G3) at Keeneland Race Course. He also placed in stakes at Zia Park, Prairie Meadows and Aqueduct in the Grade 3 Bold Ruler Handicap.
Sing Baby Sing stood the 2014 breeding season for a fee of $2,500.
