Corinthian juvenile breaks maiden in Japan


Tuesday, November 08, 2011 |
Top 10 first-crop sire Corinthian 12th winner of 2011 came in Japan on Nov. 5 as the colt Corin Blesse broke his maiden at Kyoto Racecourse. Corinthian currently ranks seventh among North American freshman sires.

Corin Blesse was four length winner over a field of 14 in the 1,400 meter race on the main track. He was bred in Kentucky by Caroline Stautberg and is owned by Masamichi Hayashi.

Corin Blesse is out of Berry Blessed and sold this April at the Keeneland 2-year-old sale, where he brought a final price of $250,000. The colt is a half-brother to stakes winner Shem and the stakes-placed filly Banker's Choice. Berry Blessed is a half-sister to 2-year-old champion Vindication and Grade 3 winner Scipion.
