Lane’s End announced today that Grade 1 winner Honor A. P., new to the farm’s roster for 2021, has his first mare confirmed in foal.
The first mare scanned in-foal is stakes winner and graded-stakes placed Omaticaya (IRE), owned by Dell Ridge Farm, LLC. She is from the immediate family of Grade 1 winners Muhtarram, Champion St. Hilarion, and graded stakes winners Ballet de France and Profit Column.
An $850,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling purchase, Honor A. P. broke his maiden as a two-year-old by over 5 lengths posting a 91 Beyer, one of the highest of his generation. He put away eventual Horse of the Year Authentic, one of only two horses to do so, in his Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby victory as a three-year-old by an easy 2 ¾ lengths with a 102 Beyer.
The Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby has long produced breed-shaping sires with past winners like Honor A. P.’s grandsire A.P. Indy, Sunday Silence, Affirmed, Pioneerof the Nile and more.
In his next start, the Shared Belief Stakes, he posted another 102 Beyer making him one of four three-year-old colts in 2020 to post multiple triple-digit Beyers beyond a mile.
Honor A. P. stands for $15,000.
