New York Watch: Biloxi
If not for a chance telephone call, owner John Fort of Peachtree Stable might have never purchased Biloxi, who overcame greenness to break his maiden on April 24 at Aqueduct Racetrack and become the eighth horse featured in the recently introduced New York Watch series. Prior to the 2008 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, Fort made a trip to Taylor Made Farm to visually inspect horses in the farms consignment. After scouting 30 yearlings, Fort left the farm, only to remember he had never looked at a particular Tiznow colt. I called Duncan Taylor (at Taylor Made) and said, I didnt see the Tiznow, Fort said of the colt later named Biloxi, who was bred in Kentucky by WinStar Farm. So I went back the next day and saw him. Fort wasnt overwhelmed by the yearlings catalogue page, but was impressed enough by the dark bays appearance to buy him for $350000. There is a lot of white on his page, said Fort, speaking by telephone from Ocala, Fla. You have to go back to the third dam to see any black-type. But this is a colt who is the picture of a thoroughbred. Hes a big, strapping, beautiful horse.
